The program addresses addiction and overdose deaths in Florida.

Florida has a new program they hope will curb addiction and deaths due to fentanyl and related opioids. Governor Ron DeSantis spoke at a conference yesterday and described a new plan to deal with the epidemic in Florida. DeSantis blamed the drug crisis on illegal opioids coming across the border from other countries, saying most production takes place in China and then the product is smuggled in through Mexico.
According to DeSantis, over 2,000 fatal overdoses due to fentanyl have already occurred in Florida this year. That means that the drug was responsible for approximately 80% of all drug-related fatalities. He went on to say that deaths related to fentanyl are far higher than with most other drugs. In fact, lacing other drugs with fentanyl has resulted in higher death rates, too. Finally, deaths from fentanyl have risen by 800% since 2015.
The governor told the crowd that less than a handful of the drug was capable of killing everyone in the room where he was speaking. Part of the governor’s plan includes very stuff penalties for dealers of fentanyl. He went on to say that a huge part of beating fentanyl is ending addiction to the powerful drug. Over the last few years, fentanyl deaths have replaced car deaths as the number one leading cause of death in Florida. Source: WFLA.com

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
