Democrats Ask Drug Policy Office to Do More to Combat Opioid Epidemic
Twenty Democratic senators are asking the Office of National Drug Control Policy to do more to combat the opioid epidemic, according to the Associated Press.
Parents who suspect that their kids are using drugs can now rent a retired drug dog from a Chandler, Ariz., woman to help sniff out evidence, the Phoenix New Times reported April 13.
Amy Halm and her dog, Dargo — operating as “Desert Drug Dog” — will come into the family home and conduct a search for a fee. Dargo formerly worked for a police department in Indiana and was adopted by Halm after being retired.
When Dargo finds evidence of cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, or other drugs, Halm places a sticky note to indicate the source, then leaves it to parents to follow up. Halm also offers Dargo's services to businesses and schools.
