Pennsylvania Looks to Create Drug Registry

Prescription drug abuse has been the main cause of the biggest drug epidemic in Pennsylvania history. According to the Health Department’s Bureau of Health Statistics and Research, approximately 2,000 Pennsylvanian’s die each year in a drug related death. Although the solution to this crisis will not be easy, lawmakers are seeking to create a drug registry to help prevent prescription drug abuse. Many neighboring states to include; Ohio, New Jersey and New York have passed legislation creating such databases.
