   Glamorizing Rx Drug Abuse
October 3, 2014  
To our Join Together subscribers,

IT’SUGAR, the national retail candy store popular with kids and teens, is currently selling shot glasses and flasks made to look like prescription pill bottles. What's worse is that these products are glamorizing prescription drug abuse, and are being sold right alongside "Hello Kitty," "Frozen" and other merchandise being marketed to kids.
Combined with alcohol, the abuse of prescription medications can be deadly, making the IT’SUGAR drinkware line even more disturbing.

Help us save more lives and prevent teen prescription drug abuse. Please join us in demanding that IT’SUGAR stops selling these irresponsible products immediately. Sign our petition on Facebook Causes and share it with your friends. 

Your support makes a difference. Together, we can #endmedicineabuse.
