This seems like a good idea both locally and nationally as a way to raise funds to get opioid addicts into treatment. HB250 imposes a tax on the first sale of opioids in Delaware at a rate of 10% of the purchase price. Prescription drugs used exclusively for the treatment of opioid addiction are excluded from the tax.
