Lawmakers to mull Oxy abuse issue

If you’re like a growing number of Americans, chances are that you or someone you know has been affected by prescription drug abuse. Here’s your chance to weigh in on the problem.

Rep. Mary Bono Mack, R-Ca., is spearheading a hearing this month on prescription drug abuse in general, with a specific focus on OxyContin. Her aides are currently seeking personal stories and photographs of those whose lives have been affected by the Oxy abuse epidemic. While it can be emotionally difficult to share these stories, Oxy Watchdog urges anyone with an interest in this issue to contact the Congresswoman’s office. Lawmakers need to know how serious this problem is.

To share your story of Oxy abuse and have your voice heard, contact staffer Courtney Creedon via email at courtney.creedon@gmail.com.
