Ohler’s Opioid Diversion and Abuse Bill Receives Bi-Partisan Support; Unanimous Passage in House

Hartford – State Representative Brian Ohler (R-64) hailed the passage of HB 7052: An Act Preventing Prescription Opioid Diversion and Abuse during Wednesday’s House Session.

“Combating opioid addiction is a lifelong battle. We must ensure that every voice is heard, every story is remembered, and every plea for help is accepted. As legislators, we have a unique opportunity to build a vast network of physicians, counselors, law enforcement officers, emergency medical responders, medical directors, and so many more. Every idea and possible solution must be entertained and explored. We need all hands on deck in order to find solutions to these deeply troubling problems. Opioid addiction doesn’t discriminate nor does it show any mercy on its victims. The passage of this bill is one more step in the right direction. We must be doing everything in our power to acknowledge, address, and eradicate these poisons from our cities and towns. I thank my colleagues and the Governor for their ability to come together and pass this legislation,” explained Rep. Ohler.
