The opioid epidemic has brought together Republican and Democratic legislators from every corner of government to combat the out of control crisis that has gripped the nation.

In Florida, Attorney General Pam Bondi (R) has all-but made combatting the drug problem in the state her life’s work, as has Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg (D), who has been on the frontline of eradicating the “sober homes” problem that has risen from the opioid epidemic.

While Aronberg has created a task force to deal with the problem on the local level, the “sober homes” problem has yet to draw federal scrutiny, but that may be changing very soon.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio is urging the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services to look into sober home abuse in Florida.
