Re: “Dixie on dope: National leaders in opioid use include Arkansas

For those of you that still don’t believe that we have a huge problem then here is another report for you to look at. The fact is that Arkansas led the nation with teenage use of these narcotics in 2008 and was in the top 10 for years prior to that and we still have done very little to change our state and local policies to address this local healthcare epidemic that causes substantial collateral damages to our communities. Unfortunately many kids have died; however most are now young adults with full blown chemical addiction issues. Maybe instead of praying that they will cure themselves or for God intervention we should be praying for God to give us some leaders that will stand up and take a proactive stance for prevention, treatment and judicial reform.

Re: “UPDATE: Justice Dept. says drug firm campaign contribution spurred helpful Ark. law

Well someone should look into this a little closer. The first amendment to her bill did not call for a study. It provided "For a period of one (1) year after the effective date of this act, all medications used to treat asthma shall be available without restriction to Medicaid patients eighteen (18) years of age and younger with a prescription from a qualified medical provider." The second amendment to her bill called for a study after the first one didn't fly and provided that "Department of Human Services shall invite a representative of each of the following entities to meet to study the issues in Section 2." 10 entities were listed and No. 2 listed is GlaxoSmithKline! The third amendment that past and became law replaced GlaxoSmithKline with Two (2) members of the Pharmaceutical Research Manufacturer's Association (PhRMA), and I think we all know who this group is. So to say there was never any intent to introduce a bill that would benefit GlaxoSmithKline's profits is simply not true. So why would she tell Max Brantly that "....She introduced legislation to study why." A better question might be is why in the world would a reporter not look any further than a statement from a state Senator concerning these types of allegations when there is a public record as to what happened?…
