My Thoughts on Drug Abuse
I read an article saying that more people in NH are dying from fentanyl
then heroine. The drug problem in NH is bad. We need to make access to
rehab centers affordable and accessible to those who need it. We need
to make it easier for families to admit loved ones to those facilities.
We need to make sure there is appropriate staffing and counseling to
keep them from relapsing when they are released. Something drove these
people to seeing drugs as their only solution so we need to find a
better solution for them. We need to work with medical staff and law
enforcement to find a solution.
Right now we're facing a growing epidemic of drug use/death in NH. As governor I would work with the Mayor of the effected towns and their law enforcement officials... We have laws right now but need to work together to enforce them correctly and help people. We need to find how the drugs are coming in and work to stop that or get rid of the incentives to dealers that are dealing here. We need to help the victims of abuse within the law.
