"These revised limits will encourage vigilance on the part of opioid manufacturers, help DEA respond to the changing drug threat environment, and protect American people from potentially addictive drugs while ensuring the country has enough opioids for genuine medical, scientific, research and industrial needs," the DOJ said.
