Rep. Alex X. Mooney Speech on Drug Epidemic in West Virginia
President Obama’s trip to Charleston to discuss the ongoing drug epidemic in West Virginia goes beyond party lines. Obama’s visit to West Virginia demonstrates the severity of the situation. We are leading the country in drug overdoses with 34 deaths per 100,000, and we have to find a long term solution to solve this problem. Hopefully this meeting will help our local, state, and national officials’ efforts to coordinate ways to fight back against the drug epidemic.
