Urban Outfitters has agreed to pull pill bottle shot glasses and flasks from its shelves.

A variety of legislators and anti-drug groups criticised the brand for allegedly promoting drug abuse, according to The Associated Press.

Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear told the AP that he wrote a letter to the brand about the “abominable product line.”

“There’s nothing fashionable about prescription drug abuse, and selling teen-targeted items that glamorize prescription drugs is repulsive,” Beshear said. 

The Partnership at Drugfree.org also lobbied to get Urban Outfitters to stop selling the products. 

The brand’s coffee mug with a mock prescription label is still available on its website.

Urban Outfitters is known for igniting controversy. The brand has been criticised for a wide array of products in the past.
