New Rules On Prescribing Opioids

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK) — New restrictions on opioids will go into effect with the new year. Doctors will be limited in how that can prescribe pills for short term accident recovery in order to reduce the risk for addiction. State Attorney General Josh Stein says that policy makers, including the General Assembly are taking this issue very seriously.  Stein spoke on Front Row with Marc Rotterman on the North Carolina Channel. Last summer, the General Assembly approved the STOP act, which places new laws and restrictions on opioids.
