Citizens Lobbying Against the Scourge of Heroin Heroin Kills Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple with FOP Member Patty Farrell  holding Laree's Law shirt        CLICK HERE TO GO TO http://CLASH.LIFE

Laree A. Farrell-Lincoln died of a heroin overdose on March 16, 2013 - days before her 19th birthday. Her mother, Patty Farrell, FOP Member and Retired Albany Police Officer was completely devastated by the loss of her beautiful daughter. Losing Laree has motivated her to search for ways to stop the scourge of heroin. One way to do this is to work with the Legislature to have new laws created.

There is a growing heroin and opiate epidemic that is devastating our families and communities. There have been uncountable deaths in all areas of New York State. There is no one action to reverse this trend. We need improved/longer treatment facilities, enhanced awareness, insurance responsibility, after care programs, and new tools for law enforcement as they seek to address the distribution of heroin. Enhanced penalties for those who deal and sell drugs is a critical piece of the puzzle to not only act as a deterrent but to provide law enforcement and prosecutors with the tools to remove these predators from the devastating cycle that is killing people across New York State.

Patty Farrell is shown at right with Albany County and FOP member Sheriff Craig Apple. You may have seen Patty on televised spots with Senator George Amedore (R, C, IP - 46th Senate District) who is working very hard on this issue. If you reside in New York State you can help by letting your Legislators know that you are a supporter. You can get more information including finding out who your Representatives are and email them now. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO GO TO http://CLASH.LIFE and learn more.
