Attorney General Jack Conway is calling on a national retail store popular with teens, to stop selling merchandise designed to look like prescription bill bottles.
Conway is urging Urban Outfitters to stop selling pint glasses, shot glasses and flasks made to look like prescription pill bottles.
Conway says these products make light of an epidemic that kills more than 1,000 Kentuckians each year and is responsible for more deaths than heroin and cocaine combined.
Conway also says combined with alcohol, the misuse and abuse of prescription medications can be deadly, making the Urban Outfitter pint and shot glasses and flasks even more disturbing.
Attorney General Conway and Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, along with other Attorneys General, will be sending a letter to Urban Outfitters to urge the retailer to stop selling these products.
Prescription drugs are now the leading cause of accidental death in the United States.
A new national survey indicated that one in four teens misused or abused a prescription drug at least once in their lifetime and of those kids who admitted to the abuse, one in five, or 20 percent, did so before they were 14 years old.
