Q#1 - Opioid Crisis

Question #1: What should Congress do to address the opioid crisis?

The CDC currently estimates more than 1000 emergency department visits daily related opioids and about 91 opioid overdose deaths every day.

When in Congress I plan on putting forth and supporting initiatives that address this crisis through treatment, recovery, addiction prevention, and community safety initiatives.

In addition, I would advocate for strict laws regulating the pharmaceutical industry. For far to long we have allowed 'Big Pharma' to lobby and use big money to support and back bad laws regulating the pharmaceutical industry.

The time has come to put People Before Profits.

I am running for office to be the change I want to see. Thank you for your support and VOTE#VoteWisdom4Congress

    The general government, as the Framers most often referred to it, has exactly zero authority over drugs, both legal and illegal, under the Constitution.

    I work at a small medical office and yesterday I had a mother call us to say a patient we saw on Sunday was her son. He smooth talked his way into receiving gabipenton (opioid-like for anxiety) and was found unresponsive that morning from an overdose of gabipenton. I can’t help but feel partially responsible, and while the mother was calm through most of it, there was a point where she broke down and I swear I’ve never seen so much despair in a person before. I think the monsters who made this reality normal (and who are staying very rich for it) need to be removed from the public before they can do any more harm.

    I want to live in a country without mothers who need to be impossibly strong, I never want to hear that kind of unbearable despair in a woman so full of love ever again.
