Anti-Opioid Initiatives Focus of Annapolis Attention


Gov. Larry Hogan and Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford Tuesday unveiled their “2018 Anti-Opioid Initiatives” in Maryland’s campaign against a staggering opioid crisis that shows no signs of slowing.

The announcement from the Republican governor immediately produced another tiff with Democratic Attorney General Brian Frosh.

But there was broad bipartisan cooperation in evidence in Annapolis as Democratic House Speaker Michael Busch and Republican Anne Arundel County Executive Steve jointly sponsored an opiod summit emphasizing local efforts and statewide legislation to battle the growing overdose deaths.
