NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — You may have seen the headline that drug overdose deaths in the U.S. fell in 2018 , the first such drop in decades. While that is the case nationwide, a look at data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that's not the case in Tennessee.

Terri Fulton: Legalize marijuana and you WILL see a decrease in these deaths..... and the state will see profit from the sell of marijuana. what is the problem??? win win in my book.

Tony Lunsford: Damn ... how much clearer do we need to be... legalize marijuana and opiates will fall... it's getting bad that we have to travel to legal states just to get high when and were we won't without worrying about going to jail or losing our weed... this is the USA 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸.... legalize it in all the USA... it's going to be smoked either way ....

Donna Solis Camacho: they blame opiate death on opiates like oxycodone and hydrocodone it's not those medications that's causing overdoses it's the heroin laced with fentanyl come on get your studies right people cannot shoot hydrocodone in their veins are the oxycodone in their veins it has to be Oxys are something they could shoot but know they're shooting the heroin laced with fentanyl that's why that's why they're overdosing
