Senators seek opioid limits for minors, ID requirement

Senators seek opioid limits for minors, ID requirement

    A trio of Nebraska lawmakers introduced bills Tuesday aimed at addressing the state’s growing problem of opioid addiction. Among their proposals was a limit on opioid prescriptions for minors and a requirement for people to show identification when picking up prescriptions. State Sens. Sara Howard and Brett Lindstrom, both of Omaha, have been touched by the issue personally.

Although Nebraska has one of the lowest rates of drug overdose deaths in the nation, 120 people died of overdoses in 2016, primarily opioid-related.
