I recently learned that your national retail candy store that is popular with teens, is currently selling products that make light of prescription drug misuse and abuse – a dangerous behavior that is responsible for more deaths in the United States each year than heroin and cocaine combined.

At a time when Rx overdoses are killing our high school and college-age kids – your customers – these tongue-in-cheek products are helping normalize and promote prescription drug abuse. By continuing to sell these products, you are putting more teens at risk and are serving to reinforce the misperception about the dangers associated with abusing medicine.

The truth is that this a dangerous behavior that is responsible for more deaths in the United States each year than heroin and cocaine combined.

As recent research from the Partnership at for Drug-Free Kids shows, teen medicine abuse has increased 33 percent over the past five years. One in four teens has misused or abused a prescription drug in their lifetime.

This is the reason why I am asking you to pull these products from your store shelves and website immediately.

Signed,
