A Maryland coalition is highlighting the need for more affordable prescription drugs.The Maryland Citizens Health Initiative has scheduled a news conference Thursday in Baltimore. Members of the group are releasing a poll that they say shows support for three initiatives. One would require companies to disclose the basis for high-cost drugs. Another would require companies to notify the public about steep price increases for prescription drugs.
