Nevada Health (March 12, 2018): Nevada Drug Policy
Last year, Nevada saw the highest increase of emergency room visits for opioid overdose of any state in the West at 18 percent. The opioid crisis is going to require the convergence of medicine, law, and policy to find a solution. Here to speak about policy solutions is David Orentlicher, co-director of the UNLV Health Law Program at UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law. Orentlicher is nationally recognized for his expertise in health law and constitutional law, he’s testified before Congress, had his scholarship cited by the U.S. Supreme Court, and has served on many national, state, and local commissions.
