Shalley Statement Opioid Abuse in Florida

Florida Retail Federation President & CEO R. Scott Shalley released the following statement in support of Governor Rick Scott's and Speaker Richard Corcoran's proposals to address opioid abuse in Florida:

“We applaud Governor Scott and Speaker Corcoran for presenting this vital framework to protect Florida families and enhance the education and responsibilities of prescribers. FRF represents thousands of pharmacy stores in Florida and the recommendations provided by the Governor and Speaker today will serve as significant steps to reducing both the current abuse of opioids as well as preventing future addictions. Specifically, limiting the frequency of prescribing controlled substances and mandating that prescribers check the PDMP will help to curtail any abuses.”
