Letter: Obits should identify overdose deaths

I think it is time that the obituaries in The Lima News include if the death is due to an overdose so that the people in Lima, and Allen County know just how bad this epidemic is.

It is time for people to wake up and not brush this under the carpet. I know there have been at least five cases just this week. It’s time to either get treatment or give them a sentence that will make them get treatment if they live from an overdose. This is sad. Already, Dayton, Ohio, is getting the bad name of being the capital of drugs for Ohio.
