Limiting the opportunities for individuals to get opioid prescriptions is the goal for Congressman Rodney Davis.
He's proposing pharmacists to take information from someone picking up an opioid prescription and then put that information into the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program.
Davis indicates this idea was that stemmed from officials in Normal, IL and he hopes it eliminates something those officials saw where individuals were filling a prescription at local pharmacies.
Davis also recently discussed the K2 synthetic marijuana epidemic that is claiming lives in Illinois. He says parents need to talk to their kids about the drug and also wants to see a better effort in monitoring synthetic drugs that come in from overseas and work with the postal service and law enforcement to find out where they are coming from and stopping them from getting into the hands of individuals.
