Governor John Bel Edwards signed three bills to help with the state’s growing opioid abuse problem. One of new laws prohibits a doctor from prescribing more than a seven day supply of opioids for a first time prescription for acute pain. New Orleans Representative Helena Moreno says she’s happy this legislation was able to come out of an unproductive session.
