Assistant to the President Joe Grogan joined the show to discuss Trump’s announcement of state opioid response grants.

People don’t know how horrible this crisis is unless it affects them personally. So for those of us that haven't been personally through something like this, why is it important to create this grant?

“There are so many families that are affected by drug overdose,” Grogan said. “We’re trying to avoid addiction.”

The $1.8 billion going to the states is to help them respond and track better data to get people the help they need.
