Last week, Pat Montague walked a few blocks from her home on Monroe Street in Annapolis to a meet group of public health workers handing out sterile syringes, fentanyl testing strips, condoms and other supplies designed to reduce health risks for people addicted to drugs. Montague had stopped by a few weeks prior and picked up some Narcan, the opioid overdose reversal drug. AA Power, a program run by the Anne Arundel Health Department, was passing out supplies as it has done five days a week for the last 18 months in Annapolis and other parts of the county.
