Attorney General Fox Releases Statement on President Trump’s Declaration of Opioid Public Health Emergency

Montana Attorney General Tim Fox released the following statement Thursday on President Trump’s declaration of a national public health emergency due to the opioid epidemic:

“Perhaps never before in our nation’s history have we experienced such acute public health and public safety impacts from substance abuse. I applaud the President’s decision to direct much-needed resources and focus towards mitigating the devastating effects of opioids. I look forward to working with the federal government through my office’s Aid Montana initiative to address the impact of all abused substances, not just opioids. Alcohol abuse, and methamphetamine sourced from other countries, continue to be the leading drivers of substance-related crimes in Montana. We have a lot of work ahead of us to get this problem under control, but we can and must find solutions.”
