Dewine: Drug epidemic is worst in my lifetime

Attor­ney Gen­eral Mike Dewine has called an emer­gency meet­ing for law enforce­ment, med­ical per­son­nel and mem­bers of the jus­tice sys­tem last Thurs­day to address the grow­ing drug prob­lem in the Buck­eye State. Call­ing it the worst drug epi­demic in his life­time, Dewine says last year, at least three Ohioans every day died because of unin­ten­tional drug over­doses from heroin. Williams County Sher­iff Steve Towns told the Bryan Times he wasn’t impressed with what the state has to offer, say­ing noth­ing new came of it. And he is con­cerned because the state focuses on the big cities, and Towns said what works there doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily work here.
