It's nice that you agree.
Is the world getting stupider, or is it just getting easier for stupid people to have their thoughts heard?

Opioids in vending machines? Really? Seriously? :200:

"While Tyndall acknowledged the public might not be ready for drug vending machines, he said distribution of clean drugs could start on a smaller scale.

For example, he said, Dilaudid could be distributed in pill form at a supportive housing facility that manages other medications, or at supervised consumption sites.

A step in that direction is a Health Canada-approved proposal to pilot models of oral hydromorphone distribution in Vancouver and Victoria.

The numbers of participants and launch date have not been established, and consultations are in progress about when and how to allow take-home drugs and other details."

Yes, I'm aware this is from US site... but suspect something similar here just smaller due to our population.

Those in charge of the agencies watching out for us John or Jane Q. Public, need to be much more accountable to those who pay there salaries.... hence John or Jane Q. Public.
Also John or Jane Q. Public needs to be much more aware what they are putting into there bodies, if prescribed an opioid.... tell the Doctor hell NO. Find me something for pain that is not a opioid i.e edible Marijuana

When you look at it per capita I would have to say Vernon beats Kelowna hands down.

Our region is really getting hammered by this. Maybe a big tour bus that people could do heroin on would help. Cant believe no one has thought of that yet

Question for Jflem1983: Since you have been addicted before is there anything that someone
could have said to you to get you to quit or to get you thinking about quitting.

I had a conversation(one sided actually) two days ago with a girl who may have been overdosing.
I had phoned 911 and as I waited for the ambulance I was talking to her.Ended up she started crying, I guess related to what I was saying to her. She really did seem like a sweet girl who was just f'ed up with the drugs.
I hope I planted some thoughts for her to think about.
So again, what can a person say to the drug addict to get them thinking and to help them?

I hit my rock bottom. I think a lot of people have to hit bottom. Unfortunately todays drugs dont just make u go broke. They kill u . I have lost so many friends to this already its crazy. The last one cut the deepest. I really think the answer is to eliminate the supply of drugs.

We need to make fundamental changes to healthcare. It starts with pills then goes to heroin.
Need to stop coddling addicts. Need to make men man up. Personal responsibility.

When i was at my lowest i ran into a guy i had known from sjsa. He was living in a recovery house going to church. I went to church with him a few times. I think it helped me a little. Just let me see there was lots of normal people. Not everyone was a zombie like me.

Even at my lowest i always would look at someone else and think that guy was more fd up than i was. As if it mattered. Heck one of the guys i was smoking crack with. Shot his buddy. After he got out. They were back smoking crack together again. Drugs obviously are very powerful. I went for 5 year tour basically. Was not a fun time.

I don't think that the supply of drugs will ever be eliminated.
Just thought that you may have some insight on what someone could SAY to an addict to make them think
and potentially want to change their life. Not anything religious cause that's not me. I can't stand the criminal
aspect of the addicts but I really did feel that this girl was different.Hope what I said made her think.
