Date:6/17/2013

NEW YORK, June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a Statement of Steve Pasierb, President and CEO, The Partnership at Drugfree.org:  

Last Friday, Urban Outfitters issued a statement to CNN that it was halting the sale of prescription drug paraphernalia products. The statement read, "In this extensive range of product we recognize that from time to time there may be individual items that are misinterpreted by people who are not our customer. As a result of this misinterpretation we are electing to discontinue these few styles from our current product offering."

On behalf of The Partnership at Drugfree.org, our partners and the families across the country affected by the issue of prescription drug misuse and abuse, we commend Urban Outfitters for doing the right thing by discontinuing the sale of these products from their current offerings.

This May, the California Friday Night Live Partnership alerted us that Urban Outfitters, a national retail store popular with teens, was selling merchandise made to look like prescription pill bottles including prescription label flasks, pint and shot glasses. In response, The Partnership at Drugfree.org launched an advocacy campaign and petition requesting that Urban Outfitters remove these products from their stores and website. Thanks to countless parents, teens, alliances and partners, including support from U.S. Representative Hal Rogers, Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy Gil Kerlikowske, Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear and 22 State Attorneys General, our efforts secured more than 4,700 signatures of support on
