Anniversary' this summer• The pastor, Rev. Jim Anderson, and the congregation invite everyone who has been a Drug overdoses and motor vehicle crashes helped push West Virginia's death rate involving accidents and violence to the seventh-highest in the nation, according to a report on injury prevention released this week. The report by the nonprofit groups Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found that such overall fatalities in West Virginia occur at a rate of 82 per 100,000 people, compared with the national rate of about 58. The report cited statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showing West Virginia had the second-highest rate of poisoning deaths at 22 per 100,000 residents from 2007-09, surpassed only by New Mexico's 27.9 rate. The national average was 13•3• Dr. Elizabeth Sharman, head of the West Virginia Poison Center, said the state's poisoning deaths are predominantly overdoses from prescriptions drugs such as oxycodone and methadone. "It's because of the drug abuse gone wrong," Sharman said. "They're abusing drugs• They didn't mean to die." According to the CDC, poisoning is the leading cause of U.S. deaths from injuries, and nearly nine out of 10 poisoning deaths are caused by drugs. As part of a crackdown on pill mills and doctor shopping, a new state law will limit the amount of pain drugs that a doctor or clinic can dispense, speed up the tracking of prescriptions through a statewide database and increase oversight of pain management clinics as well as methadone treatment centers. It also tightens the purchase limits of cold remedies that can be used to make methamphetamine. Among motor vehicle crashes, the Tues.

The report praised West Virginia for allowing people in dating relationships to get protection orders. But it also cited a study by the anti-date violence group Break The Cycle that suggested West Virginia should allow school response to dating violence; allow minors to petition for civil protection orders and have access without parental involvement to services such as HIV services, prenatal and medical care; and offer victims of intimate partner stalking and harassment access to protection orders. The report noted West Virginia was among 21 states requiring bicycle helmets for all children, among 33 states requiring car or booster seat use to at least age 8, and among 19 states having a universal motorcycle helmet law. West Virginia also was among 48 states that have an active prescription drug-monitoring program. The re'port said West Virginia didn't require ignition locks for convicted drunken drivers, didn't have a strong youth sports concussion law and allows police to cite drivers for seat belt violations only when there is another traffic offense• A bill that would have required the West Virginia Secondary School Activities Commission to come up with rules about evaluation and treatment of youth sports concussions failed to pass in the Legislature this year. Lawmakers were divided over the issue of legal immunity for certain health care providers• A bill to make seat-belt violations a primary offense also died. The bill passed the state Senate, cleared the House Roads & Transportation Commission and was in the House Judiciary Committee when the session ended in March• The report also noted the state didn't respond to an inquiry into whether emergency department data systems routinely collect codes that classify types of injuries. Such codes help researchers track trends and develop prevention strategies. , If you would like to follow the daily action of the Legislature, visit the 80th Legislature on the web at As always, I welcome and appreciate your input on this or any other legislative issue• Please call me at (304) 340-3102 or write to Delegate Virginia Mahan, Room 206E, Building 1 State Capitol : : Complex, Charleston, WV 25305.
