Monrovia's Senator Wants to Ban Pain-Killer Oxycondone to People Under 21
State Senator Anthony Portantino, who represents Monrovia, has introduced a bill, SB 419, which would prohibit doctors from proscribing oxycodone, used to treat moderate to severe pain, to individuals under the age of 21.
Portantino's press release says Oxycodone, more commonly known by its brand name OxyContin, has become abused, often ending in addiction, tragedy and overdose.
