• What fantasy world are you living in? — Stephen Terrance Herd

• What about the progress in helping our veterans, homeless and elderly? Where is the help for the people that don’t do drugs? — Robert Locke

• Why can’t we do all of it? — Benjamin Black

• Oh please, we are not making any progress anywhere. The funds are not making it down to the people on the front lines, Period. — Natalie Andrews

• Hahaha yea right, funny thing is we are so worried about opiates lately we seem to not care about all the other pharmaceuticals being taken, anti-depressants and anti-anxiety meds for one. Oh and has anyone ever heard of benzos? Literally you hear nothing of this term in the news and benzos are now becoming just as worse. — Christopher Joyce

• The U.S. is making progress on a problem they created — awesome.— Wayne Grimm
