Heroin Opiate Prevention & Education: HOPE combats abuse

In 2014, I signed into law a package called "H.O.P.E.," which stands for Heroin Opiate Prevention and Education. HOPE invests in Wisconsin communities. It comprehensively changes how we contend with heroin by implementing the twin principles of support and accountability. To prevent deaths due to overdose, HOPE equips law enforcement officers and first responders with additional tools to more effectively combat opiate abuse, including access to life-saving medicines, and encourages addicts to seek emergency care for fellow drug users. HOPE also supports addicts with treatment alternatives, especially in under-funded, yet high-need, rural areas of our state. Accountability-wise, HOPE creates swift and certain sanctions to respond to probation violations instead of automatic incarceration. And finally, HOPE calls upon medical professionals to demand identification for certain prescriptions. HOPE lays the foundation for reversing the dangerous trend of heroin addiction.

Drug testing is common sense policy for workplace safety

Drug testing is not a new concept. It is a common sense policy. Take, for instance, some high-demand fields and manufacturing jobs, where sobriety is unquestionably necessary for the operation of technical equipment and heavy machinery. Workplace safety requires the imposition of drug testing for employees.

While some have said that drug testing makes it harder to get assistance, we say it makes it easier to get a job and helps people live full and meaningful lives.
