N.H.'s New Drug Task Force: The Statehouse Takes Up Substance Abuse

Nov 23, 2015

Approved by a special legislative session, a newly minted task force will spend the next weeks considering several options for tackling the state’s drug problem, which has claimed more than five hundred lives in the last two years. The goal is to craft legislation quickly -- in time for the January return of the legislature.
