The Drug Problem in Florida

The state of Florida is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States. Millions of people visit the state every year seeking fun in the sun and a plethora of other activities.  All of this traffic going into and out of the state also brings an abundance of substance abuse and other drug-related problems.  In fact, Florida has the fifth highest rate of violent crime in the U.S. A significant portion of this crime rate is the result of drug-related activities.

The current drug epidemic in Florida leads to increased costs for law enforcement, higher crime rates, lost productivity, and a mounting death toll. Governor Rick Scott has proposed legislation to provide $54 million grant money to expand prevention and education programs and to provide treatment services to those in need.  He also declared the drug epidemic a public health emergency. Governor Scott had this to say about the situation in Florida:

“I know firsthand how heartbreaking substance abuse can be to a family because it impacted my own family growing up," Scott said in a statement. "The individuals struggling with drug use are sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and friends and each tragic case leaves loved ones searching for answers and praying for help."
