"Charlie's Law" Measure to Promote Safe Drug and Needle Disposal Practices Clears Legislature, Heads to Governor's Desk

A bill designed to be a part of New Jersey's ongoing, integrated approach to preventing and fighting drug addiction cleared the Legislature today and now heads to the Governor's desk for further consideration.

The bill (A-3988/A-5010) known as "Charlie's Law," would require pharmacy practice sites and hospice programs to provide patients with information and products to safely dispose of unused drugs and medications. The measure, sponsored by Assembly Democrats John Armato, Raj Mukherji, Carol Murphy and Clinton Calabrese would also require patients be given the opportunity to receive, or purchase, a nontoxic composition that could be used to safely dispose of unused, unwanted and expired drugs and medications. The bill is named in honor of "Charlie," a New Jersey man who battled addiction for several years before ultimately succumbing to the disease at age 34 in 2013.
