Attorney General Pam Bondi News Release
"We must do everything we can to protect babies from the devastating effects of prescription drug abuse by expectant mothers. We recently launched an educational campaign in Florida, and I strongly believe that placing warning labels directly on prescription opiates is another necessary step in protecting the most vulnerable victims of this epidemic," stated Attorney General Pam Bondi.
Attorney General Bondi, the Department of Children and Families, the Department of Health, and members of the Statewide Task Force on Prescription Drug Abuse and Newborns recently launched a statewide educational campaign designed to prevent babies from being born exposed to prescription drugs. The campaign educates expectant mothers about the importance of discussing prescription drug use with their doctors, and it provides ways to assist women. The campaign includes a helpline at 1-877-233-5656, a website at BornDrugFreeFL.com, video and radio spots, and billboards.
Attorney General Bondi is committed to stopping prescription drug abuse in Florida. To learn more about her efforts, visit MyFloridaLegal.com.
