General Landry: The opioid epidemic knows no bounds; it affects all regions, economic classes, ages, and demographics. So I am grateful to have partners like Sheriffs Hilton and McCain in our fight against this devastating and deadly problem.
General Landry: We are committed to fighting the opioid epidemic that is crippling our State. Too many in Louisiana have lost family members and friends at the hands of this crisis; and I hope this attempt to get rid of unused prescriptions can and will save lives.
General Landry: Despite potential budget cuts that threaten our efforts to meet the challenges associated with the Governor’s Medicaid expansion, we will continue to work hard for the people of Louisiana.
General Landry: This scheme was not just illegal, but it was also extremely dangerous. Instead of service workers learning necessary skills, they were fraudulently getting certifications without any training – greatly jeopardizing the health and safety of patients.
