Bill Would Make Ohio Train Pharmacists On Naloxone Law


Ohio law permits pharmacists to give the overdose antidote Naloxone without a prescription to people who deal with opioid addiction. One lawmaker is proposing a measure to help ensure pharmacists follow through.

Democratic state Sen. Nickie Antonio (D-Lakewood) has sponsored a bill that would require the State Board of Pharmacy to educate pharmacists about the current Ohio law that allows people to get Naloxone without a prescription.
