PITTSBURGH, Pa. — Attorney General Jeff Sessions was in Pittsburgh Monday to address the opioid crisis.

Sessions delivered remarks on what he called “the deadliest drug crisis in our history,” citing local incidents of overdose deaths and connections to violent crime.

“These are not numbers — these are moms, dads, daughters, spouses, friends, and neighbors,” Sessions said.

“We’ve seen people in and out of treatment, expensive treatment and still not be able to kick the habit,” he said.
