(NEW ALBANY) - Dan Canon, Congressional candidate in Indiana's 9th district, issued the following statement after Lawrence County's County Commission failure to renew their needle exchange program.

"This is inexcusable. With the public health emergency across the district, state, and nation, elected officials have a moral obligation to act to solve the opioid, Hepatitis C, and HIV crises," Dan Canon said. "Cutting access to any program that seeks to mitigate these crises is morally bankrupt, at best. These programs are a necessary response to the utter devastation we've seen in Scott County and elsewhere. Lawrence County officials know full well that our people will die as a result of this move. We call on these county commissioners and other elected officials to use the full resources at their disposal to help solve this issue before it gets even further out of control. The people of the Ninth District deserve better."
