Montgomery County offering free kits to prevent heroin overdose deaths

Heroin accounts for nearly 2/3 of all drug deaths in Montgomery County. Now the county is offering free of charge medications that can pull people out of a heroin overdose.

Project DAWN, Deaths Avoided With Noloxone, is providing the medications. They are available to those who have a friend or loved one they’re worried will overdose on heroin.

Why are we spending $130,000 for this. It seems to me to endorse such behavior. They speak with a parent of an addict saying it would be for her daughter. That’s fine if the mother would pay for it on her own, I wouldn’t have an issue with this. My problem with it is when taxpayer funds goes to programs like this.
