MASSACHUSETTS SAYS NO TO ZOHYDRO: RALLY AT THE STEPS OF THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE HOUSE

MASSACHUSETTS SAYS NO TO ZOHYDRO: RALLY AT THE STEPS OF THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE HOUSE

 

MALDEN, MA….On Tuesday, April 29th, the Massachusetts AFL-CIO, Learn To Cope and concerned citizens from across the Commonwealth will rally on the steps of the Massachusetts State House to say no to the powerful opiate drug Zohydro in Massachusetts. Earlier this month, Governor Patrick issued a State of the Emergency on opiate abuse that included a ban on the prescription and sale of Zohydro in Massachusetts. Zohydro is a potentially lethal narcotic that is 10 times stronger than Vicodin and has been approved to be produced without tamper proof protections. The FDA approved the use of Zohydro even though a panel of experts recommended 11-2 that the drug should not be distributed due to its strong potential for abuse.

 

A Federal Judge has since struck down Governor Patrick’s ban while the maker of the drug is threatening a lawsuit against the state. We need to come together and communicate, strategize and organize in order to stop the FDA and Big Pharma from selling this dangerous, deadly and addictive drug in Massachusetts before ensuring it is tamper proof.

 

WHO:             Learn to Cope, Massachusetts AFL-CIO, concerned citizens from across the Commonwealth

 

WHAT:          Massachusetts Says No To Zohydro: Rally at the Steps of the Massachusetts State House

           

WHEN:          11:30 AM, Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

 

WHERE:       The Steps of the Massachusetts State House – Beacon Street, Boston
