Urban Outfitters pulls pill-bottle shot glasses

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Political leaders in drug-plagued Kentucky say they're pleased that retailer Urban Outfitters has stopped selling flasks, shot glasses and pint glasses that look like prescription pill bottles.

Urban Outfitters said in a statement to The Courier-Journal of Louisville that it stopped selling the items because of a "misinterpretation."

The anti-drug group, The Partnership at Drugfree.org, initiated the push to try to get the shops to stop selling the items. Political leaders signed on last month in Kentucky where more people now die from drug overdoses than car wrecks.
