Drug Deaths on the Rise in Clark County

>> Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Did you know that in 2000 there were 219 drug-medication related deaths in Clark County? While this number is disconcerting, according to the Clark County Coroner's Office the number of annual deaths more than doubled to 456 by 2008. Last year there were 464 deaths, but that number is likely to rise as dozens of cases are still pending.
