Cleveland, OH, United States - February 13, 2018 /MM-REB/ —

Leading Cleveland drug attorney, Edward La Rue, has recently discussed the growing drug problem in America, during an interview in Ohio.

Deaths resulting from drug usage in Ohio are expected to surge 70% by 2025, a report recently released by Trust for American’s Health and the Well Being Trust found. This means that in less than a decade 48.5 per 100,000 deaths in Ohio will be drug related.

When asked to comment, La Rue said, “The headlines are not misleading. Drug usage is one of America’s age-old problems that has resurfaced in years, largely stemming from the opioid epidemic.”

Other estimates put drug-related mortality rates in the state higher – at nearly double-fold – by 2025 largely due to the surge in the usage of opioids, such as heroin, fentanyl, and carfentanil.

While this is a widespread problem throughout America, Ohio has it worse than most. The Buckeye state is slated to rank 11th in America by 2025 in terms of mortality rates resulting from drug/alcohol use or suicide.

“Increased drug usage means more arrests, and more arrests mean a need for clients to seek a defense attorney who can mount a successful case, especially at a time when law enforcement will be cracking down on illicit activity.”

The extent of the drug problem faced by Ohio has not always been this severe.

Deaths from drug overdoses in the state have increased 506% since 1999 as per figures from the Trust for American’s Health report.

“The opioid crisis, which has hit Ohio in particular, has happened so rapidly, placing strain the existing legal system. This situation calls for defense attorneys who can navigate the evolving legal system both at the state and federal levels,” De Rue commented.

New laws and new regulations will be created to combat drug and alcohol usage, De Rue added. Some of these new regulations could include making sure that opioids aren’t being overprescribed by doctors or increase the availability of rescue drugs.

“However, this is not a problem that is going away anytime soon. While prevention and treatment efforts are in the works, no one knows how long it’ll take to curb the current drug crisis. In the meantime, we’ll be working within the legal system to help our clients also fight the opioid crisis,” he said.

What's next for Paul Allen's big investments? It's not clear

Oct 19, 2018

SEATTLE — Prior to his death on Monday, billionaire Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen invested large sums in technology ventures, research projects and philanthropy, some of it eclectic and highly speculative. What happens to those commitments now? Outside of bland assurances from his investment company, no one seems quite sure. Allen died in Seattle from complications of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, according to his company Vulcan Inc. He was 65. He never married and had no children, and details of his estate aren't known. Forbes recently estimated Allen's net worth at $20.3 billion. He used much of the money he made from Microsoft...

Startup plans to launch small satellites from Virginia coast

Oct 19, 2018

NORFOLK, Va. — A California-based startup has announced big plans to go small as it reaches into space, rocketing satellites the size of loaves of bread into orbit from Virginia. The endeavor reflects increasing demand from companies and governments alike to monitor ships, crops and the weather from space. Rocket Lab said Wednesday it will build its launch pad at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport on the Eastern Shore. It's located at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility where unmanned cargo missions already are dispatched to the International Space Station. Rocket Lab, which recently built its first launch pad in New Zealand, is...

London's black cabs soon to be seen on the streets of Paris

Oct 19, 2018

LONDON — London's black cabs will be seen on the streets of Paris next year as the company that makes them begins selling its wares in the City of Light. London Electric Vehicle Co., which makes plug-in electric taxis that look like traditional black cabs, has put about 600 vehicles on the streets of London and has already expanded to Amsterdam, Berlin, Hamburg and Oslo. The move into Paris comes as Mayor Anne Hidalgo aggressively works to improve air quality in the city. CEO Chris Gubbey says London Electric Vehicle wants to provide "new options" for drivers and passengers given...

Experts urge gulf refuge for endangered vaquita porpoise

Oct 19, 2018

MEXICO CITY — Experts called on Mexico's government Wednesday to use floating barriers to enclose a small area of the Gulf of California where a half dozen critically endangered vaquita porpoises were spotted in September. The sightings were an unexpected mix of good and bad news for the world's smallest porpoise, which has been driven to the brink of extinction by nets set illegally to catch totoaba, a fish whose swim bladder is considered a delicacy in China. One of the porpoises was identified by experts as Ana, a mother that was spotted with her second new calf in two...

Nobel Prize winner honored with dedicated campus bike rack

Oct 19, 2018

COLUMBIA, Mo. — The University of Missouri is honoring its Nobel Prize-winning scientist with an unusual accolade: a dedicated spot in a bicycle rack. George Smith learned this month that he'll share this year's Nobel Prize in chemistry with two other scientists. Other schools have recognized their Nobel laureates with a dedicated parking space. But the 77-year-old Smith is, by his own assessment, "not a good driver." Smith tells The Kansas City Star he's no "bike enthusiast" but that he lives less than a mile from the Columbia campus and bikes to work every day. His spot will be in...
