I am writing to share a copy of a draft letter that is being supported by a wide number of organizations in light of recent stories that Office of Management and Budget may be considering eliminating the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP).

As a longtime advocate of ONDCP, I do hope your organization/agency/coalition can consider supporting as you understand the unique and critical role this office serves. Also, please feel free to share widely with your networks and encourage additional organizations to sign on as well.

To sign on, please contact Kevin Sabet at kevinsabet@gmail.com no later than COB on Wednesday, February 22nd.

During the season premiere of Real Time with Bill Maher (Jan 20), which of course fell on the same day as Donald Trump’s inauguration, host Bill Maher had this to say: "Trump Voters are ‘Pillbillies’ and ‘F*cking Drug Addicts’"

Maher then brought out statistics showing the high amount of opioid drug consumption in certain red states, such as West Virginia and Wisconsin, noting with Wisconsin that doing drugs can turn you into a Republican.

Tonight Congressman Tim Ryan (D-OH) will be a guest on Maher's real Time HBO show. As the Democratic co-chair of the Addiction, Treatment, and Recovery Caucus, Congressman Ryan has an obligation to address this ignorant, insensitive rant.

Addiction doesn't care if you are Republican or Democrat.There is nothing funny about #144ADay dying due to a drug overdose.

Please let Rep. Ryan know how you feel about this issue. Consider signing & sharing our petition: https://www.change.org/p/bill-maher-to-apologize-for-the-new-rule-trump-addict-s-hbo-real-time-episode
