Attorney General Jeff Landry announces plan to combat opioid abuse

WBRZ - Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry today announced a new initiative to help educate the public on dangers and responsibilities associated with opioids. 

Partnering with the Louisiana Ambulance Alliance, Attorney General Landry created the Opioid Abuse Prevention Fund. The fund will pay for the “End the Epidemic LA” informational campaign.

“Opioid abuse has taken the lives of too many of our children, parents, neighbors, and co-workers. We hope that End the Epidemic LA will assist in the reduction of opioid misuse, abuse, and overdose,” Landry said.
