Controlled Substances (Support)

<p>Controlled Substances (Support)</p><p> HB 21 (Boyd) and SB 8 (Benacquisto) are comprehensive proposals to address the opioid crisis in Florida. The bills propose a three-day limit on prescribed opioids, unless strict conditions are met for a seven-day supply, and require all healthcare professionals that prescribe or dispense medication to participate in the Florida Prescription Drug Monitoring Program. In addition, the bills create, and in some cases enhance, penalties for non-compliance. (<a href="mailto">Cook</a>)</p>
