A preliminary report was issued earlier this week by the President's Commission of Combatting Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis stating that its "first and most urgent recommendation" is for the president to "declare a national emergency under either the Public Health Service Act of the Stafford Act".
“With approximately 142 Americans dying every day,” the report notes, “America is enduring a death toll equal to September 11th every three weeks.”
This is an amazing statistic!! Something needs to be done. What do you think of the recommendation?
