Janet Mills on Drugs
Investigate role of opioid manufacturers in drug abuse
Mills said the coalition is investigating what role opioid manufacturers may have played in creating or prolonging the drug epidemic. "We need to get the genie back in the pill bottle; our society is awash in pills and it
is killing us." She went on to say that the vast majority of people arrested for possession of heroin or fentanyl tell authorities that their substance abuse disorder began with painkiller prescriptions.
