IT’SUGAR, the national retail candy store that is popular with teens, is currently selling products that make light of prescription drug misuse and abuse. As a business that attracts young, impressionable consumers, IT’SUGAR could play a key role in helping to reduce this risky behavior, rather than winking and nodding at it. Please join us in asking IT’SUGAR to remove these products from their stores and website immediately.

Accidental drug overdoses are now the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. Some of these deaths could be prevented if the patient received medical care in a timely manner. The Partnership supports policies like Good Samaritan laws which encourage people to call 911 when someone is overdosing.
