The US Senate this month passed a bipartisan measure to help fight the growing wave of prescription drug abuse and the heroin epidemic. The House previously gave its ok to the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act.

 

Among the backers is Congressman Rodney Davis.

 

 

Davis believes in shifting the focus from prison time to treatment for offenders and maybe reducing mandatory minimum sentences of the past and present.

 

 

The legislation is now headed to President Obama's desk.
