State Attorney General Jeff Landry has announced a drug prescription takeback box is now available 24 hours a day at the Baton Rouge Police Department. In making the announcement, Landry addressed the drug problem taxing the state. He says statistics show the problem may be related to recent Medicaid expansion, which made Louisiana the 31st state to do so in 2016.
