Trump says opioids are a national emergency. Here's what happens next

He asserted, "We believe at this point that the resources we need or the focus that we need to bring to bear to the opioid crisis, at this point, can be addressed without the declaration of an emergency". The president said the best way to avoid opioid addiction is to never use the drug from the beginning. You know when I was growing up they had the LSD and they had certain generations of drugs.

Every year, for the last four years, 30 people in the county have died from an opioid overdose.

And in about the last 10 days or so, the commission recommended in an interim report that the president declare a public health emergency as it relates to the crisis.

A recent report found that 142 people died from drugs abuse in the U.S. every day - a toll which is "equal to September 11 every three weeks". There were 36,450 fatal overdoses nationwide in 2008 and 47,055 in 2014, but half of the deaths reported unspecified drugs and in one-fifth to one-quarter, it was the only drug-related designation included.

How bad is the opioid epidemic, you ask?

Summer Edition' review: Plenty to joke about
Whether it can up its game to stand out among a crowd of seemingly more invested political comedy shows remains to be seen. If this were a Mooch among Mooches a month ago, it'd partake of some residual Mooch-mania.

The numbers bolster recommendations from the president's own bipartisan panel of experts - led by Trump loyalist Chris Christie - on the crisis.

"The opioid crisis is an emergency and I'm saying right now it's an emergency".

"Having the president declare a state of emergency is a beginning in a very, very tough road", said Dr. Barbara Herbert, immediate past president of the MA chapter of the American Society for Addiction Medicine.

The report also called on Washington to grant waiver approvals to all 50 states to eliminate barriers and allow treatment at Medicaid-funded residential facilities, a move it said would rapidly increase treatment capacity.

While not giving specifics, declaring a national emergency will allow for federal funds to be allocated to the problem.

Brighton set to break transfer record to land Izquierdo
Izquierdo has experience in Belgium, the Europa and Champions Leagues, as well as global experience with Columbia. This will be the third time that Brighton has broken the club's transfer fee record this summer.

April Caraway, executive director of the Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board, noted county officials previously called on OH officials to declare a state emergency, which Gov. John Kasich has declined to do. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, almost 4,000 people in Florida died in 2015 as a result of opioid abuse. Coderre said in a state of emergency, the federal goverment could directly distribute both MAT and naloxone to municipalities and states. "It takes money to get the beds up and running", Newton said.

But Daniel Raymond of the Harm Reduction Coalition, an advocacy group, said Trump's words "need to be accompanied by actions".

When Donald Trump first arrived in Bedminster, New Jersey, many photos showed him with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner and their children, but there was no sign of Melania or Barron Trump.

Addicts often say they want the most powerful drug they can find and often seek batches of drugs that have been linked to rashes of overdoses.
