On Wednesday, Rep. Mike Sheehy (D-Oregon) announced the passage of House Bill 399, legislation which designates the first Friday in May as Prescription Drug Abuse Awareness & Education Day.

State Reps. Nickie J. Antonio (D-Lakewood) and Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) sent a letter to Gov.

This comes after last week’s controversial execution, in which the State used an untested two-drug lethal injection method.
