Lucido supports measure protecting teens from opioid abuse overdose

first_img Categories: Lucido News Tags: Health Policy, Opioid Locking vials will prevent pilfering in Macomb County familiesState Rep. Peter Lucido, of Shelby Township, today announced his support of a bill reducing the instances of teen opioid abuse and overdose through the use of locking prescription vials for opioids.The legislator said the current pill bottle design is only meant to keep small children from opening them but does nothing to prevent pilfering, the act of sneaking a small number of pills hoping that it will go undetected and the number one source for youth opioid abuse.Each year, 595,200 children between the age 12 and 17 nationwide pilfer from the family medicine cabinet.“Instances of opioid abuse continue to rise at astronomical rates, destroying families and the futures of our young people” Lucido said. “This measure, along with many other opioid reforms I’ve supported during my time in office, is what we need to keep dangerous drugs out of the hands of our teenagers.”Lucio believes low-cost, secure, locking prescription vials will ensure addictive prescription drugs are accessible only by those who need them.It is estimated that eliminating pilfering would prevent more than 150,000 Michigan teens from initiating abuse and return $715 million in lost productivity and criminal justice costs to the state’s economy over the next 10 years.House Bill 5857 was referred to the House Health Policy Committee.center_img 01May Lucido supports measure protecting teens from opioid abuse, overdoselast_img read more
