Sen. Coons welcomes more federal action on opioid crisis

"The opioid crisis is an emergency and I'm saying right now it's an emergency". Though the nation has just 4% of the world's population, the United States also has 27% of the world's drug overdose deaths, according to the UN's 2017 World Drug Report.

In 2014 alone, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 14,000 people died from overdoses involving prescription opioids.

Donald Trump spoke to pool reporters at his New Jersey golf club on Thursday about the semantics of "fire and fury", why his party's highest-ranking congressman is a disgrace, and the good old days of LSD. For example, allocating more money to help pay for treatment and providing greater access to overdose-reversing drugs, like Naloxone. I'll tell you what, and they should be very nervous, because things will happen to them like they never thought possible. "I would like Russian Federation and the United States, China and Pakistan, and many other countries that have nuclear weapons, get rid of them", Mr. Trump said.

The Trump Administration will declare the USA opioid epidemic a national emergency, according to White House pool reports, which should free up federal funding to be used for addiction treatment and prevention efforts. However, on Thursday, August 10, President Trump indicated he will declare a national emergency and has begun the formal process of doing so.
