OxyContin for kids? Senator Manchin says “Just say no!”
September 14, 2015
Senator Joe Manchin and a bipartisan group of eight colleagues are urging the HELP Committee leadership to “hold hearings on the exponential rise in the misues and abuse of opioid painkillers and consequent opioid overdose deaths as well as examine the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) recent decision to approve a frequently abused prescription opioid painkiller known as OxyContin for use by children as young as 11 years old.”
Should there be any doubt about what should be done, Network faithful? We think not!
