66 Session in 60 Seconds - Revising prescription drug laws
Lawmakers of Montana seem to be paying attention to the crisis at hand with prescription drugs in our country. This bill would add new restrictions for professionals who prescribe or dispense prescriptions when it comes to opioids. 


House Bill 86 would require providing positive identification of potential recipients of controlled substances. This would also restrict new patients to just a 7 day prescription. Lastly, requiring certain professionals who prescribe or dispense prescription drugs to register under a prescription drug registry. This would require them to review the prescription drug registry before prescribing an opioid to a patient.
