The New Overdose Solution thread.

Postby Queen K » Jul 29th, 2017, 11:11 am

Yesterday a prong of harm reduction had been executed in AB by the RCMP seizing the largest fentanyl supply in history.

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/al ... e35830331/

It's a drop in the bucket sure, but it's part of the supply chain. The other part is dealing with the dealers and at every level, most importantly the highest level, which I suspect is supported by a certain elite getting kick backs. I wonder if I'll ever be exhonerated for my gut feelings.

As it is, we have RV injection buses legitimizing herion shoot ups under the guise of saving lives. Only most people shoot up in their freaking houses and not out in a place they can be seen.

So is it money well spent to save lives? Or is it legitimizing the dealers?

Four deaths in three days? And it's an emergency in Toronto.

Clearly there is no safe injection site in Toronto.

Ok, have a couple of questions: what would happen if Naloxone were not available to the extent it is today?
Disclaimer here...there is no such thing as a stupid question...yes there is, one to which you already know the answer...

I truly don't know what would happen if naloxone were not available like it is today. More deaths without a doubt. Ok fewer customers for the dealers. ( Not meant to be cynical). Would there be more enforcement resources to find and stop the fentanyl getting to the streets? Would the dealers get the fact they are killing their customers?
Is society enabling more drug use with these "safe injection Sites" I find a bit of a disconnect that they shoot up at these sites, start falling to the fentanyl laced drugs , get narcane'd, several time perhaps, and two days later back at it...
Do they not want help to stop this cycle of death roulette? If they do, is there immediate help, not a 6 week waiting list?
Like most, I read and see the news regarding the stats and issues and people trying to help and the spin that goes along with it, but is there truly a solution to people wanting to play roulette with their lives with fentanyl laced drugs.
Just how much money to put towards this issue is enough and how much is too much?

Over the drug trade? 27 shots in Surrey alone since January 1/2017 and these guys won't pony up information. They'd rather let the public be at risk for dying than give out information.

Why are these guys even allowed to run around?

Qk. You know where this is heading, more of the same from the same. However this time. Im staying out. Through with bashing my head against solid bone of the.... Never mind, I know better than simply complain for the sake of complaining with nothing to offer other than, we ll, just being a dog in the female vernacular.

Have at it.

Castanet's most ironic username - and that's the truth. 10/10 :up:
While the research shows that people with right-wing views tend to be less intelligent than those with left-wing views,
the continued excuse-making and support for Donald Trump indicates researchers have underestimated by how much.

Im just going to say one last thing regarding this-
Im sorry for the families that have to deal with this scourge, like mine had, without the valuable resources of someone who's been there, done that, navigated the "streets" and system, knows a thing or two about the subject, has actually read, consulted, sought expertise, lived it- beyond just stop doing or buying drugs-Nancy lol, Nancy Reagan style.

I have sympathy and empathy since I've lived it.

Jail, prison and being a hard nose hasn't solved anything. Science and medicine hasnt solved it yet either, however in the last twenty years Neuro science has illuminated much, prison hasn't changed much mentality wise in over a hundred years.

If anyone has legitimate questions. Feel free to pm me.

Take care of your kids, don't be blind, see the warning signs even if they're your own red flags. They're the next generation of addict that others will let die in the streets.

Peace, done here :)
