Our area has a pretty bad drug problem. It’s scary. I’m at the point where I’m concerned for the future of the city, honestly.

It’s good to see Congressman Vern Buchanan focused on solving the problem because it’s so easy to sweep drug abuse under the rug. His serious efforts to address the prescription pill and heroin problems in our state is a case of a politician focusing on what their constituents need.

Good work, Vern.
