White House top drug policy official coming to VT

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- Gov. Peter Shumlin says a top White House drug policy official will be visiting Vermont next week to talk about innovative ways to beat opiate addiction.

According to the governor's office, Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy R. Gil Kerlikowske will be in Vermont on Monday to meet with the governor.

Shumlin says they will discuss partnering on new ways to tackle drug abuse and possible federal resources for the state.

Tackling opiate addiction in Vermont has been a major priority for Shumlin since focusing his January State of the State address on the topic.

Earlier this week, it was announced Shumlin will co-lead a session for national governors about reducing prescription drug abuse.
