Florida Gov. Rick Scott has signed legislation to fight the state’s opioid problem. He did so today while in Bradenton. Manatee County was the home for the highest amount of deaths in the state from fentanyl in 2015. The drug is said to be 5,000 times more lethal than heroin. According to statistics, 16 residents of Florida dies every day. The bill is written to change the way prescriptions are handled and will put the state and feds on the hook for over $53 million for treatment programs and updating the prescription database.
