The US President Donald trump said that he intends to introduce a regime of emergency because of the epidemic of opioid abuse — artificial opiates that have analgesic effect, which also provide on the human body effect, similar to the action of opium. About it reports Reuters.
“The opioid crisis is an extraordinary situation, and I officially declare that this is an emergency,” said the American leader to journalists, while on vacation at his Golf club in Bedminster, new Jersey. According to him, the presidential administration is drafting the documents for the official announcement of emergency situation in the country.
“We’re going to do it, and we’re going to do this emergency situation in the country. This is a serious problem, which we never had,” said trump.
Also, these measures will lead to increased access to various forms of drug addiction treatment that will give the government the opportunity to accelerate the introduction of restrictions on the use of opioids. “We’re going to spend a lot of time, effort and large funds to address opioid crisis. This is a global problem and not just problem the United States,” said trump.
