The opioid epidemic continues to wreak havoc on rural America.

Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation director Ruth Meirick says opioid addiction is impacting rural families at greater numbers than the urban population.

“Three out of four farm families have been impacted by the opioid epidemic, and three out of four farmers say they can access large amounts of prescription medicine without a prescription.”

She tells Brownfield a change in behavior can be a sign of opioid addiction.
