AG Landry launches campaign to end opioid abuse

WWL - Attorney General Jeff Landry is working to end the opioid epidemic in Louisiana with the new Opioid Abuse Prevention Fund. Landry that fund will pay for an informational campaign complete with a website, advertisements, printed materials, and community outreach.

“It’s designed to teach children and adults alike the responsibilities and dangers associated with opioid addiction,” Landry said.

Landry says the fund will be paid for through a partnership with Louisiana Ambulance Alliance and Amphastar Pharmaceuticals. He says rebates from medications that treat opioid overdoses will pay for the cost of the End the Epidemic LA campaign.
