Morgan, minority professional staff, Committee on Government Operations.Opening Statement Of Chairman TownsMr. Towns. The Committee on Government Operations, Human Resources and Intergovernmental Relations Subcommittee will convene.The hearing is on Increased Drug Abuse: The Impact on the Nations Emergency Rooms.I am delighted to welcome our distinguished witnesses this morning to discuss the growing crisis the Nations emergency rooms face because of increased drug abuse.On April 23, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services of the Department of Health and Human Services issued an annual report detailing the statistical evidence of hospital emergency room visits caused by the use of illegal drugs.The report cited an alarming increase in the use of emergency rooms by heavy and long-term drug users.

Of particular concern is the incredible increase in emergency room visits caused by the use of heroin.In the late 1970s or early 1980s, there were reports that a purer, cheaper, and potentially more addictive form of cocaine was being sold on the American streets.The alarm was sounded, but nobody listened. As a result, we have the epidemic of crack cocaine that is sweeping our streets, that is destroying lives, families, and communities day in and day out.Today we sound the alarm again. Heroin is cheaper, purer, and in abundant supply. I hope we can learn from history.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
