Over-prescribing opioids hits a snag in Florida

Opioid use is at an epidemic level and has been for some time. Lacking regulation, over-prescribing and increased drug trafficking led to 70,237 drug overdose deaths in 2017. 47,600 of those deaths involved prescription or synthetic opioids and 5,088 of those deaths occurred in Florida – a 5.9 percent increase from 2016. Florida’s new opioid law hopes to lower that number; at least the overdoses tied to over-prescribing.
