FORT MYERS, Fla. -- One group says they will rally for victims of the opioid crisis in Fort Myers on Tuesday.

The group "Don't Punish Pain" says in the fight against the opioid epidemic, the federal government has over-reacted, denying pain medicines to those in genuinely need.

They will rally outside of Fort Myers City Hall (2200 Second Street) from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Tuesday, January 29th.

They say the rally is part of a nationwide movement.
