Prescription Medication and Drug Abuse in NJ – What You Should Know [AUDIO]

Jim spoke about this topic at great length yesterday (7/11). It started out as a discussion on the drug problem in NJ and morphed into a “what you need to know” segment regarding prescription medication.

The entire segment started yesterday with Jim discussing the plight of a caller named Linda, who has frequented the show. Linda has a son who has been in trouble in the past  due a bad dug problem and actually got assistance for her son by calling in to Jim’s show and the Ask the Governor program.

The following is the audio of Jim beginning the discussion:
