New Law Restricts Financial "Gifts" to Medical Professionals

According to this article in TimesArgus a new law which will come into effect on July 1st will restrict almost all forms of financial contributions between drug makers and physicians that prescribe the medication. This has come into effect after evidence was found that these gifts heavily influence the prescribing patterns of doctors. Representatives from pharma companies oppose the law, stating that these relationships between interactions with doctors and prescribers are necessary to explain new treatments and medication. What are your thoughts on this?
