The Consumer Healthcare Products Association, the Kentucky Pharmacists Association, and the Kentucky Retail Federation are joining together to go public with one of Kentucky's first anti-smurfing initiatives. CHPA's local representative, Patrick Jennings joined local legislators Monday to roll out the campaign and explain smurfing.
8th District Representative and House Judiciary Committee Chair, John Tilley says thanks to the Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force and the local law enforcement, the problem is not as bad local as in other places.
3rd District Senator and Senate Judiciary Committee Chair, Whitney Westerfield says he is glad to see these groups join together and focus on protecting Kentuckians.
Jennings says the law current allows those who need to purchase lawfully over the counter to meet their cold and allegery needs.
The campaigns will be spread to all pharmacies, large and small, around the state in an effort to help combat a growing problem around the nation. To see the ad campaign flyers visit wkdzradio.com and oldies1480.com.
