Tackling The Opioid Epidemic


Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge Tuesday appeared alongside U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and state Attorneys General from across the country to speak about the federal government’s plan to tackle the opioid epidemic and the Prescription Interdiction and Litigation Task Force.

“I am proud to work with U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and my colleagues across the country to tackle the tragic and deadly battle against opioids,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “This is a complex epidemic that requires a multifaceted approach including education, treatment and enforcement. My office uses Prescription for Life to educate teens and parents about the dangers of prescription drug misuse. By partnering with local law enforcement on drug take-backs, we remove the dangers of parents and grandparents unknowingly becoming drug dealers for their loved ones.”   MORE
