Description

The Times found the Republican gubernatorial candidate Stephen Goldsmith's biggest instate political contributor was marketing a legal but controversial asthma drug that teenagers in Indiana and other states widely use to get high. Fifty-five thousand dollars worth of political donations from Richard A. Deer came as the FDA and other states were cracking down on the sale of his obsolete, over-the-counter asthma remedies. He them sold by mail order, over the Internet, at truck stops, convenience stores, mini-marts and liquor stores. (August 25, 1996)
