(Portland, OR)  --  A mother in Oregon is stumping for a new law to deal with the state's opioid epidemic.  Jackie Jones wants lawmakers to pass two bills being considered to tackle different sides of the opioid issue.  Her son Jim was 18-years-old when he died of a drug overdose.  The laws Jackie Jones is pushing to have passed are H.B 2645, which would create disposal bins for old or expired prescriptions and H.B 2518, which would track doctors overprescribing potentially dangerous drugs.
