Vt. attorney general asks for tamper-resistant drugs

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

Vermont's attorney general wants pain reliever manufacturers to be required to create tamper-resistant versions of their pills.

William Sorrell joins 42 other attorneys general in asking the Food and Drug Administration to push the companies that make generic pain relievers for the change.

Sorrell says prescription drug abuse has reached epidemic levels and requiring this is a common sense tool to fight addiction.
