Dear Elected Member
I send this letter in response to the recent, unacceptable rise in the number of drug deaths (1,187). That’s one thousand one hundred and eighty seven human beings. This was the last official figure given but we already know that this number will have increased by the time the next set of figures are released to the public.
Unless we take drastic steps to combat these drug deaths immediately, more of our mums, dads, brothers, sisters, partners, sons and daughters will die.
Make no mistake this is a crisis that isn’t going away and to know that Scotland is the No.1 for drug deaths in the Western world, is horrific. For this to be the case in the 21st century is nothing short of a national disgrace. As a very proud country I feel we should all hang our heads in shame.
This epidemic is ravaging my community which is also your community. This loss is devastating families and communities and depriving us of the future potential we lose through these deaths – that can be prevented.
As you are an elected representative, I am keen to know what you are doing to highlight this epidemic and any action that you are taking to prevent further drug deaths. Also is there something we can all do as a community?
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
