David Trone on Drugs

 

 


We can't accept government's response to fight opioid crisis

We have the 10th highest rate of opioid overdose deaths in the nation. President Trump does not take this crisis seriously. He has proposed cutting the budget of the Office of National Drug Control Policy by 95%, refused to declare a national emergency to combat the crisis, and appointed a political advisor rather than a qualified expert to oversee the government's response. This approach is wrong and the consequences are deadly. The government can and must do more to combat this epidemic.

Every day we don't act on opioid crisis, more people die

The opioid crisis is a top priority for me. In 2016, 64,000 Americans died from overdoses--my nephew Ian was one of them. Every day we don't act, more people will die. I've put together a comprehensive plan to address the epidemic [with a focus on prevention and detox centers; focus on alternative pain treatments; and reforming our criminal justice system].
