Dear Members of the Missouri General Assembly,
On behalf of the undersigned, the Collaborative for Effective Prescription Opioid Policies
(CEPOP) respectfully urges you to authorize a state Prescription Drug Monitoring Program
(PDMP) for Missouri during the 2015 legislative session.
CEPOP was formed to advocate for comprehensive and balanced public policy change that will
help confront the epidemic of prescription drug abuse in our nation. We strongly believe that
bringing the State of Missouri alongside all other states in the nation which already operate
PDMPs would be an important step in this direction. We are encouraged by your efforts this
year to accomplish this objective.
The facts are compelling that this is a national priority…
