Federal Money Aims To Tackle Minnesota Opioid Abuse Problem

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Federal money is reportedly coming in to help Minnesota tackle a growing opioid abuse problem.

The Minnesota Department of Health says overdose deaths have nearly doubled in the past decade, from 111 in 2005 to 216 in 2015.

The federal government is giving a five-year, $1.6 million grant to the Minnesota Department of Human Services.

    They could just give the Hmong the $1.6 million and ask them to cut back on bringing it in from trips back home. That, and build a fence. Not all the Hmong are into drug trafficking. Lots of them are preoccupied with sex with underage girls. Just today Bee Vang sexually invaded his prospective child bride’s space, an 8 year old girl in a K Mart changing room, with a Rice Krispies bar stuffed inside a condom. The more usual Vang clan custom is to just kidnap the child bride to have sex with her.
