Feds plan prescription drug summit


Federal authorities are planning to hold a summit aimed at fighting what they call the epidemic of prescription drug abuse. The one-day conference is set for Thursday at Norwalk Community College and is sponsored by the US attorney’s office and the Drug Enforcement Administration. The goal is to improve prescription drug interdiction and prosecutions by providing law enforcement, physicians, educators, and community leaders with tools, skills, and contacts. The conference will include talks on the scope of the problem, the effect of the drugs on the brain and society, prescription drug cases in Connecticut, and the industry’s perspective. (AP)
