  • E-prescribing of all substances, including controlled substances, by March 27, 2016
  • Changes by the State to controlled substance schedules
  • Establishment by the State of a Prescription Pain Medication Awareness Program
  • Creation of a safe disposal program (operated through some local police departments)
