Matt Mead on Drugs

 


Narcotic prescriptions abused more than illegal drugs

The death rate for misuse of narcotic prescription drugs exceeds all other illegal drug and drunk-driving deaths combined. We need to better monitor narcotic prescription drugs at point of contact to prevent abuse and lower the death rate.

Other pressing matters include health issues, ag issues, law enforcement issues, our aging population. I would look closely at legislation you put before me that addresses them.

Confront substance abuse aggressively

Deaths from drug overdose, deaths from drunk driving, teenagers addicted to drugs are tragic events--to individuals, to loved one and to our communities. Wyoming needs to do better. Substance abuse problems are prevalent, and I have the experience to tackle them.
