Can data solve the opioid crisis? One member of Congress from Virginia thinks it’s worth a try. Michael Pope has the story.

*Editor’s Note: After this story was published, Rep. Comstock’s office vigorously disputed any implication from political analyst Quentin Kidd that the legislation has any political motivation.  In a phone call, Comstock said the opioid crisis “is not a partisan issue.”  She also noted her previous involvement in speaking about and addressing the issue  both in Congress and in the Virginia General Assembly.  That context should have been included in the original story.
