McConnell discusses crushable pain pill abuse with Health and Human Services

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell met with Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Acting General Counsel Bill Schultz in Washington on Wednesday, December 19 to emphasize the seriousness of the prescription drug crisis in Kentucky. During the meeting, Senator McConnell told HHS’ top lawyer that “prescription drug abuse is a significant problem in Kentucky that will be made worse by the imminent availability of these crushable pain pills and I encourage the administration to take action immediately to avert the looming threat to Kentucky from these frequently-abused, crushable-pain pills.”
