Newspaper Report on Drug Running Includes UMaine study

A Bangor Daily News report on drug running along the I-95 corridor noted studies of drug-related mortality patterns in Maine done by Marcella Sorg, a UMaine forensic anthropologist who is also the state’s anthropologist and works in the state medical examiner’s office. Sorg told the BDN Friday that oxycodone, methadone and benzodiazepines are the primary drugs causing fatal overdoses in Maine and Florida, and the pattern of drug deaths between the two states is similar.
