Indiana Lawmakers / Opioid Addiction Crisis
February 03, 2017
Indiana is experiencing an opioid addiction crisis, and with it myriad connected issues in terms of public health and criminal activity. The spike of HIV cases in Scott County attracted national and international attention. How best to tackle all of these effects is the topic of a compelling discussion this week on Indiana Lawmakers. Host Jon Schwantes moderates a panel comprised of some of Indiana's leading voices in the opioid battle: Senator Jim Merritt, R - Indianapolis; Representative Ed Clere, R - New Albany; Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill; and Indiana Health Commissioner Jerome Adams.
