Opioid crisis article on Consortium........

Ummm just WOW how delusional the Attny. General here is:

Although the territory has not experienced the opioid epidemic, Mr. Walker strongly believes that taking a proactive approach may help to stymie a potential opioid crisis.

“So far, the Virgin Islands has not been hit by this epidemic,” he said. “But we have to proactive and need not wait for it to come before we take action because a number of states are being ravaged by it.

Every pharmacy that was open in downtown St. Thomas in my 22 years on island got shut down because of selling pills under the table, to the point that there are none. I can't count how many people that I have heard of that have pill problems here. It is denial like this that allowed the "epidemic" to get as bad as it is in the states..
