zohhydroIn Harrisburg, there will be a Human Services Hearing on the prescription drug, Zohydro at 10AM Tuesday.

Republican State Representative Gene Digirolamo, from Bucks County wants to add the pain killer to the Schedule 1 List of controlled substances.

Under Pennsylvania law, Schedule 1 Drugs have the highest rate for potential abuse and no known medical use, such as heroin.

The Food and Drug Administration recently approved the drug.

Massachusetts attempted to ban the powerful painkiller, but a federal judge issued an injunction April 15th, saying the state could not ban a federally approved drug.
