Priorities and Issues
When 1 out of every 6 people has prescriptions for anti-depressants, it is easy to understand why the Opioid Crisis has taken hold in America. Additionally, study after study has shown that addictions to prescription painkillers lead to addictions to a more lethal drug, like heroin and crystal meth. The crisis has also put enormous burdens on our county jails and healthcare facilities. As a State Senator, I will work with representatives from the federal government to extend and expand federal grants that will assist districts and rural counties to address the opioid epidemic. We can do better, and when I am in office, we will do better!
