Isn't drug use pretty epidemic in those areas due to the extreme poverty, especially in the Appalachian areas?

CNN-"-Across the United States the number of people testing positive for drugs has increased steadily over the last three years, reaching the highest level in a decade. With Trump's ban on refugees and the talk about lack of jobs in the rust belt, businesses are in a tough spot."  As we can see by your post, The Government of the US has a real task that they have to resolve.

 

In a segment which highlighted  Ohio, Erie, and Kentucky, employers told CNN that they can't fill jobs with American workers because they CAN'T PASS THE DRUG TESTS!  That is very sad, and this is where the government needs to intervene heavily to deal with this issue and provide whatever is necessary to resolve issue.

 

Refugees aren't taking the jobs of Americans, a spokesman from Sterling in Erie, PA told CNN, they are filling them.  Seventy percent  of our workers are refugees.  Said another from Sterling, when we do drug testing 20% of American employees fail their drug test.  We find evidence of Marijuans, Meth, heroin, and amphetamines.  We don't have that problem with refugees.

In louisville, KY, 6,000 refugees have come into the community in last five years.   A spokesman from White Castle told CNN that when they work with Kentucky Refugee Ministries, a group who works with and finds employment for refugees,  they have had no trouble at all with refugees.  A spokesman from the Ministry said employers tell them to" send as many of them as they can.  Once, she said, we had someone employed on the same day.  The refugees," she added," aren't taking the jobs, they are filling the gaps." All of what you are saying is the community doing the job of the Federal Government. It is the responsibility of the Federal Governemtn to resolve this issue.

 

Now, when you take into consideration that Trump's 'wonderful" Health Bill, gutted addiction treatment centers, at the same time he wants to ban refugees, there seems to be quite a  conflict of national interests. 
No question that the Health Care that they tried to pass was an abomination of what it should have been. Unfortunately we have now an Administration that obviously doesn't care what is happening in this country regarding drug use and mental health.
