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.
The state of New Mexico was within its rights to prevent US Airways from serving alcohol on flights to the state after a drunken passenger was involved in a fatal auto crash, a federal judge has ruled.
The Associated Press reported Oct. 2 that U.S. District Judge M. Christina Armijo said that state liquor laws took precedent over the Federal Aviation Act and the Airline Deregulation Act; US Airways had argued that the federal law trumped state law.
New Mexico officials denied the airline a liquor license in 2007 after a passenger who drank heavily on a flight to Albuquerque caused a crash later in the day, killing five people.
