Letter: Opioid epidemic hitting home



I just received the Feb. 26 edition of Current in Carmel and sincerely appreciate your publication of the article on drug overdoses in our county. The article succinctly pointed out the need for strict border security at our southern border and further exemplifies the need for the barrier wall.

(Hamilton County coroner John) Chalfin is quite correct in his statement, this issue is real and is right here at home. Thank you for the tacit approval for the National Emergency Declaration to stop the flow of illegal drugs into our communities. I’m sure our citizens appreciate your support on this issue.
