Published September 09. 2019 04:57AM

HARRISBURG (AP) — Pennsylvania will receive another $75 million in federal aid to fight the opioid-addiction crisis, money that Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration says will help with treatment, prevention and education.

Wolf’s administration said Friday that about $56 million will go to the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs. The money will also help extend programs designed to help people in addiction treatment find stable housing and to attract treatment professionals by helping repay their education loans.

The state Department of Health received $8.4 million, a grant that is expected to repeat each of the next two years, while Philadelphia received $5.9 million and Allegheny County received $5.2 million.

Wolf’s administration says total federal funding for Pennsylvania’s opioid response is more than $141 million over the past two years.

Why are we against a border wall? Hello?
Why do we welcome everyone and anyone to come on in?
The Main Stream Media doesn't report this...
Six of the seven people charged in the stabbing death of a man in Maryland in July have been identified by federal officials as being part of the MS-13 gang and in the country illegally, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
MS-13 lives off the sales of drugs to your little ones.
America has always welcomed legal immigrants. Over a million legal immigrants are welcomed with open arms every year. The world understands this. It is illegal immigrants that take advantage of open borders, liberal malfeasance, and obsolete laws that are unwelcome. Breaking-and-Entering America is a crime. Would you, Joe, welcome someone breaking into your house? You have Trump Derangement Syndrome on full display. Things you supported under a different President are suddenly opposed to deny President Trump credit.
Actually, A Harvard-Harris poll indicates 53 % Democrats believe that any immigrant reaching the border should stay.
If you know people are breaching the existing security, you fix it, unless you encourage that breach.
Not sure why you argue this. The Democrats fight the wall, they want the chaos.
I’d sooner allow open borders than invite co-conspirators of the 9/11 attacks to be pampered and treated to a weekend at Camp David, the week of the 18th anniversary of the attacks.

When will you guys have enough of this moron?
Joe, how many wars did you fight in before you became an armchair General? If a meeting can end a war, even if unorthodox methods are used, what is so wrong about that? I am not one to advocate compromise with the Taliban. The Taliban seems to be as dogmatic, by my study, as you are Joe. We don’t know the purpose of the meeting yet. Sometimes meetings are the best way to evaluate your enemy. You, Joe, don’t know the agenda or the intent of the meeting. It could have been a Taliban surrender meeting, for all we know. Your hatred bleeds through your intellect. I have been to war Joe. War is not fun. You can sit at home and call Trump a moron, but, the real moron is you for dogmatism and insulting President Trump.
Here's my two cents, and it won't cost a dime...
"Just Say No"
We live or loose by how we choose.
Just say no!
"NO" to drugs, yes to the WALL!
