Prescription Drug Abuse A Topic at Summit


National and local drug enforcement officials, Governor Ted Kulongoski and other gathered at the Federal Courthouse in downtown Portland to talk about a growing problem; prescription drug abuse. Oregon Attorney General John Kroger says it's quickly becoming an epidemic, especially among middle and high school kids. He adds that Oregon has the highest percentage of kids abusing prescription drugs than any other state in the country. One solution discussed was increasing opportunities for drug take-backs; the federal government now working on creating a program at pharmacies and medical centers.
