Anti drug legislation moves ahead

The Maine House today gave initial approval to a bill that takes a different approach to fighting the states drug problem.

It provides money for both fighting and prosecuting drug crimes, but will also provide more money to treat those who are fighting addictions.

The bill calls for funding 10 additional drug enforcement agents, along with two judges and assistant attorney general positions  to handle drug related cases.

It will also provide 750-thousand dollars to the Department of Health and Human Services for opiate addiction treatment.

The bill faces additional votes in both the House and Senate.
