Drugs & Addiction
In Greater Minnesota we are plagued by a drug epidemic. From my experience in the courts of western Minnesota, I have seen first-hand how drugs ruin families, careers, lives and everything they touch.
We must do a better job as a state on focusing on rehab and treatment, while cutting the demand for illegal drugs. Improving mental health resources and access to treatment and providing skills to be positive contributors to society is a key to successfully helping families and saving big on our taxpayer money. It’s the compassionate thing to do, AND it’s the most economic thing to do.
