Governor Edwards signed into law SB 134, now Act 32, which will allow pharmacists to dispense Schedule II controlled substances (like opioid painkillers) in an amount less than that indicated in the prescription. Measures like this are designed to reduce the quantity of unused opioids in circulation, which can be diverted into the illegal supply if not disposed of properly.
