CHARLESTON — Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announced a five point initiative on Tuesday to combat the opioid crisis. Members of the State Police and Charleston Police and several legislators joined him for the announcement.

“We have far too much senseless death in West Virginia,” he said.

Morrisey said that his proposals will take the form of several bills rather than a single omnibus measure. He’s talking with legislators to get sponsors and doesn’t have a date in mind yet to get them introduced.
