Drug deactivation packs to be distributed across Shreveport-Bossier


Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry stopped in northwest Louisiana on Tuesday, Nov. 2 to announce the distribution of drug deactivation packs.

The new packs will be distributed via Meals on Wheels through the Bossier Council on Aging in an effort to combat the opioid epidemic.

“Our seniors have loved ones, caregivers, hired help and they see those medicines and they say, ‘Oh, I hurt my knee,’ and they’ll say, ‘Here, honey, take one of these,’” said Tamara Crane, executive director of the Bossier Council on Aging.
