Kentucky Addresses Prescription Drug Abuse

It’s an alarm law enforcement has been sounding for years – prescription drug abuse is a growing trend and is claiming lives as the problem sweeps across the state from the east to the west. Statewide, 82 people a month die from drug overdoses. Kentucky is attempting to address the issue during this legislative session as eight bills have been introduced to deal with different aspects of prescription drug diversion, abuse and regulations.
