Md. Gov. Larry Hogan Outlines His War on Heroin
Hogan said he lost a cousin to a heroin overdose a few years ago. He went on to say while on the campaign trail, many people across the state echoed the seriousness of the heroin epidemic.
So, Gov. Hogan has assembled a council and a separate task force, which will be headed up by Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford.
The governor has allotted $500,000 of a federal grant to expanding "re-entry programs" that help inmates, who are leaving prison, to stay off heroin.
In addition, Kaleo has donated about 5,000 doses of an overdose antidote for heroin to Maryland.
