Thank you President Obama. It was his administration that set it in motion and Trumps can’t deny that there is an Opioid crisis. Now the problem is what are we going to use for the millions of people in real pain who now can’t get opioids?

WASHINGTON STATE – Washington state is set to receive $11 million to combat the state’s opioid epidemic.

The money comes from a grant, totaling $485 million, awarded to states and territories by the Trump Administration.

The funding will be provided through the State Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis Grants administered by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
