Gov. Hassan Attends Opiate Response Conference
New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan will join most of the other New England governors at a conference to map out a regional response to the growing problem of opiate drug abuse.
Hassan will attend Tuesday's meeting at Brandeis University in Waltham hosted by Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick. Only Maine Gov. Paul LePage is not expected to attend.
The meeting is expected to include discussion of how law enforcement can work together to stem the flow of illegal drugs across state lines, along with coordinated approaches to treatment in the region and development of a unified public information campaign.
Law enforcement in New Hampshire, like other places around the country, say they are seeing far more cases of heroin and opiate abuse than in the past.
