Legislative effort to deal with prescription drug, meth abuse moving forward

first_imgby Alicia Freese April 28, 2013 vtdigger.org An omnibus drug bill designed to tackle prescription drug and methamphetamine abuse is making headway in the Senate.The House passed H.522 in March. Since then three Senate committees have further honed the legislation. On Friday, the Senate Health and Welfare Committee voted out the bill, and it is expected to make a stop in Senate Appropriations before it arrives on the Senate floor this week.The House proposal launches new initiatives to stem opioid and methamphetamine abuse. H.522 sets minimum standards for doctors to consult the Vermont Prescription Monitoring System in order to ensure patients are not doctor-shopping for opiates. It also creates a monitoring system for meth precursor drugs that can be purchased at pharmacies; establishes a pilot program for wider distribution of a drug that reverses opioid overdoses; and requires the commissioner of the Department of Health to develop a statewide program for the disposal of unused prescription medicine. In addition, H.522 places more regulations on the sale of precious metals and makes it easier to crack down on drug activity that takes place on abandoned property.The Senate left most of the bill untouched, but the Judiciary Committee made several additions, including a provision that would allow doctors to prescribe methadone to drug addicts. It also calls for a 90 percent reduction in methadone clinic wait lists for patients. The Senate Committee on Economic Development, Housing, and General Affairs scaled back monitoring requirements for the sale of precious metals.Sen. Richard Sears, D-Bennington, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said the two major changes address what he saw as a major deficiency in the House bill, which did little, in his view, to expand drug abuse treatment.The Judiciary Committee added a provision that would allow doctors to prescribe Methadone for addiction treatment in an attempt to allow patients to bypass lengthy waits for the states treatment clinics.Sears says he has high hopes for this part of the bill. This would mean that my constituents who are currently driving to Greenfield, Mass., to get treatment would be able to get it in Bennington, Sears said. And thats a huge change â ¦ I dont know of any others states that have moved in this direction.Sen. Dick Sears, D-Bennington.However Jackie Corbally, the chief of treatment for the division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs (ADAP) in the Department of Health, told VTDigger its unlikely the proposed change in state statute will result in a change for Sears constituents. Thats because, while its a straightforward process to prescribe methadone for pain, doctors are encumbered by a number of state and federal regulations that prevent them from prescribing it for addiction treatment.Lifting state regulations wouldnt free the physicians from obligations under federal law, Corbally explained.The Judiciary Committees revision also calls for a 90 percent reduction in the number of patients waiting for methadone clinic treatment.Corbally said the department expects to make significant headway on addressing the wait list problem, but the 90 percent target is optimistic.We are incredibly optimistic about what this bill will do to our system as a whole, Corbally said. We feel in combination with the hub and spoke initiative we will be able to significantly address the waiting lists.The Judiciary Committee also put a three-year expiration date on the requirement that pharmacies use a free database to track purchases of precursor drugs, which can be used to manufacture meth.The sunset provision is a nod toward concerns raised by the Vermont chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. The database allows both pharmacists and law enforcement to access data on drug purchases at a nationwide level.In a memo to the Judiciary Committee, the ACLU explains, That means all the data entered at your local drugstore when you buy behind-the-counter Sudafed is instantly available to any police officer or pharmacist using the system.Sears who supports expanding law enforcement access to the Vermont Prescription Monitoring System (VPMS) said he thinks its inconsistent to allow police warrantless access to the meth database without extending the same privilege to the VPMS.A lot of people are concerned about this huge database. Heres the real incongruity. Theyll know if Im buying Sudafed they being state police but were not giving state police access to who is buying OxyContin. So theres a concern here.Allen Gilbert, executive director of the ACLU, said the database, in addition to collecting information about drug sales, also holds onto peoples personal information, including their name, address, date of birth, and ID number.Gilbert concludes in the memo, I think its accurate to say that an increasing number of Vermonters are beginning to feel that every time the state encounters a new problem, a new database is built.The chair of the Health and Welfare Committee, Sen. Claire Ayer, D-Addison, said the House bill made really good improvements to the VPMS, and her committee didnt think any changes were necessary. The House version sets up minimum mandatory requirements for doctors to register with the database.The Economic Development Committee removed another new database from the bill. This one would have tracked the sales of precious metals, in an effort to crack down on addiction-fueled thefts. The committee also lifted some of the other regulatory requirements that the House version put on pawnbrokers.Under the Senate version, pawnbrokers are no longer required to get a license and they are subject to less rigorous bookkeeping requirements.last_img read more

Secretary-General LaRocque applauded Grenada’s strong commitment to regional integration, exemplified, he stated, by Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell’s dedication as Lead of Head of Government for Science and Technology in the CARICOM Quasi-Cabinet.  Prime Minister Mitchell has also been an advocate for Statistics in the sustainable economic development of the Region, the SG noted. Mr Gill asserted that Grenada’s role and influence in CARICOM has been “distinct and unambiguous”, crystallised by the 1989 Declaration of the Grand Anse Work Programme of the Advancement of the Integration Movement that paved the way for the establishment of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME). Grenada’s new Ambassador to CARICOM HE Arley Gill signs while Secretary-General Ambassador Irwin LaRocque looks on See more photos – Accreditation Ceremony He told the Secretary-General that the vision articulated by Heads of Government in 1989 was still relevant today, to which Grenada remained resolute. “In Grenada, we continue to see CARICOM as a channel through which Member States are bolstered in the regional and international community by the positions we take and have taken as a collective on matters of tremendous importance to our development,” the Grenadian envoy stated. He underscored the need for ordinary CARICOM citizens – the coconut vendor on the streets of Roseau, the doubles vendor in Port of Spain, the water taxi operators that ply their trade on Grand Anse beach – to feel the impact of the decisions made in trade, free movement, and climate change. “It is our duty to keep them informed and engaged in our deliberations and decision making, so that they do not feel marginalised by an institution which was established in the first place to benefit them.” Mr Gill said.

Conservationists try to save underfed lions in Sudanese wildlife park

REUTERS/Mohamed Nureldin Abdallah A malnourished lion walks inside its cage at the Al-Qureshi Park in Khartoum, Sudan January 22, 2020. /REUTERSConservationists in Sudan are trying to save four lions they say have been underfed and neglected in a wildlife park in the capital Khartoum, after one lion died earlier this week.Khalda Seliman Mahgoub of the Sudan Wildlife Research Centre said the emaciated lions belong to an important subspecies that exists only in limited areas including southeast Sudan and neighbouring Ethiopia.“Since this is a particular subspecies that we should preserve, I shouldn’t see them in a cage. They should be in their natural habitat,” said Mahgoub.It was unclear exactly where the lions had come from but the cages in Al-Qureshi park where they were being kept had been constricting their movement, she added.The lions are now being treated after a plea from the Sudan Wildlife Research Centre and an online campaign pointing out their plight.Al-Qureshi park receives few tourists and little revenue. Sudan has suffered decades of internal conflict and international isolation, and was rocked by months of protests and a political uprising last year.Related Zimbabwe suspends hunting of wildlife in Hwange parkcenter_img Three escaped Kruger Park lions shot deadlast_img read more

Julio Jones tells Falcons he will skip minicamp

first_img GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES KEYWORDS IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, Julio Jones, Julian Edelman, Thomas Dimitroff NEW YORK – Wide receiver Julio Jones told the Atlanta Falcons he won’t attend this week’s mandatory minicamp, the team announced Monday.“We have been in contact with Julio and his representation,” general manager Thomas Dimitroff said in a statement. “We will not discuss those conversations publicly except to say we feel they have been productive and constructive. We understand the concerns and thoughts from their perspective.”center_img According to an ESPN report, Jones’ decision to skip minicamp stems from an unsatisfactory response to a contract proposal in recent weeks. Jones has missed the Falcons’ offseason conditioning program and organized team activities — all of which is voluntary. The minicamp, the team’s final practice before training camp starts in late July, is the only mandatory portion of the offseason, with players who don’t attend subject to fines.The NFL Network reported in May that Jones would like “some sort of correction or update” to his contract — which still has two years remaining — adding that the Falcons are “amenable” to working something out, in part because of how good of a player and teammate Jones is.In other NFL news, New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman’s impending four-game suspension for performance-enhancing drug use is a result of him testing positive for an “unrecognizable substance,” according to Albert Breer of The MMQB.Edelman apologized for the positive test in an Instagram post on Friday, saying “I don’t know what happened.” Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is not attending this week’s mandatory minicamp due to contractual issues with the club. | AP RELATED PHOTOSlast_img read more
