Comments

"What is going on, on the street, is that marijuana is being laced with heroin and now we have this problem with fentanyl and carfentanyl, which are deadly. And I think we have to be really careful. What I have voted for, requires regulation and that is my position and I will maintain it." 3/28/18 http://www.cleveland19.com/story/37830985/lawmakers-discuss-marijuana-legalization-on-federal-level

"Our communities desperately need more of a helping hand from federal partners to fight addiction, and these continuation grants allow Lorain and Erie Counties to keep building on the success of existing programs, that work to keep our children from falling into a cycle of drug use," said Kaptur. "I will fight to make sure Congress does more to bolster programs that bring together teachers, parents, law enforcement and students to make a real impact in our fight to prevent drug use."
