A Democratic candidate for Ohio attorney general touted his plan to reduce heroin abuse in the state, during a visit to Findlay today.
David Pepper, a former Cincinnati councilman and Hamilton County commissioner, spoke with The Courier about his efforts to combat the drug. He said the attorney general should make a larger push toward both treatment and criminal enforcement.
“If you look at other states, they’re in solution mode right now, and we’re not,” Pepper said.
Courier reporter Ryan Dunn will have more on Thursday.
