Heroin Epidemic
28 March 2016

"As I testified before Congress, too many prescription drug abusers have found an inexpensive and too often deadly alternative in heroin. As recommended by our Heroin Task Force, the life-saving drug naloxone needs to be more accessible - and without a prescription - as well as available at a reasonable cost. I applaud the Governor and Legislature for their efforts. This bill will surely save lives." – Teresa Jacobs, Orange County Mayor
