STAYING ON TOP OF THE OPIOID CRISIS
The effort to step up the war on opioid use may have had an unintended negative effect. With so much focus on stopping opioid use, officials may have overlooked abuse of other substances. Reports claim that while opioid use is front and center, drug cartels have taken the opportunity to up the game with other drugs, such as heroin. And this problem may not go away any time soon, as heroin is becoming more attractive to addicts due to its lower cost and availability. One way officers are dealing with the problem is by carrying naloxone, which works to counteract the effects of opioids and gives officers the chance to use the substance during a potential overdose rather than make an arrest. With all of these issues intermixing, the chances of being charged with a drug related crime are growing. If you are facing criminal drug charges, call us for help.
