New Kentucky Laws Fighting Drug Abuse (#730)
The 2012 General Assembly passed a law that further limits the acquisition of pseudoephedrine (PSE) by consumers. PSE is the key ingredient used to make methamphetamine. The legislature also passed laws cracking down on illegitimate pain-management clinics known as pill mills.
Operation UNITE (Unlawful Narcotics Investigations, Treatment and Education) takes a three-pronged approach to the drug abuse problem in the 29 counties of the 5th Congressional District. It was launched in April 2003 by U.S. Rep. Harold 'Hal' Rogers in response to a special report, "Prescription for Pain," published by the Lexington Herald-Leader.
