Malloy Talks Heroin On Public Radio

The reach and impact of heroin, long described as an epidemic, dominated the last 10 minutes of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s appearance Thursday morning on WNPR’s Where We Live.

“… It’s everywhere. We had a young person die in a coffee shop in Trumbull. This is not a regional problem,” Malloy said in response to questions from host John Dankosky.

Malloy this month proposed legislation that would, in part, require towns and cities have policies in place that would require first responders have access and ability to use the opiate overdose antidote naloxone, often marketed under the name Narcan.

“I’ve been talking about this since 2011; finally other people are talking about,” Malloy told Dankosky.
