Many cry their frustration with the Obama administration’s lack of effort to help with different addictions.

This is one of over 40 “Fed Up!” rallies throughout the country.

They say since Obama’s first term in 2008, the U.S. has experienced skyrocketing rates of overdose deaths and addiction involving prescription opioids and heroin.
“Allow those that are looking to get into treatment to have that availability. Right now we’ve got waiting lists that are months long. Someone who’s ready to get into treatment they need to do it five minutes ago, not six months from now,” said Co-Organizer Melissa Patterson.
The event was organized by the Fargo–Moorhead Good Neighbor Project.
