It would be a welcome change. The first step is not to be scared of finding out you've been wrong about something and learning something new. That is scary for some, but a critical step in getting anywhere near understanding truth. Good luck.

Okay, here's the real tragedy to all the ods.
The healthcare costs of dealing with the irreversible brain damage.
Do the dealers chip in?
Only when their assets are being seized.
Here I thought there was nothing lower than a snakes belly in a rut in a ditch. I was wrong.

Regardless of what you believe about our Charter of Rights and Freedoms, this guy thinks they're great!

His lawyer successfully argued on his behalf and he walked. I wonder how many people od'ed on his fentanyl. How much it cost us just to deal with the ods, the deaths and they aftermath, nevermind this guy's court case.

https://www.castanet.net/edition/news-s ... htm#247537

So in China a guy gets hard labour upped to the death penalty.
Here in Canada another guy has all his rights and freedoms protected.

You decide what kind of country you want to live in, especially now that the RCMP can come into your house up to two hours after drinking, to take a breathalyzer test. No rights or freedoms involved.

Calls ramp up for decriminalized hard drugs

Leading health authorities in the province have renewed calls for the decriminalization of hard drugs like opioids.
B.C. chief medial health officer Bonnie Henry says a clean drug supply would have significant impacts in savings lives.

The federal government is in charge of policy around drug legalization but the provincial government does have jurisdiction over prosecutions. Currently, B.C. is working on ways to prescribe prescription-grade heroin to drug users and provide other medications on a regular basis.

"What my office is looking at is how we can have de facto decriminalization for people who use drugs in B.C.," Henry said.

<snip>

The B.C. government has been on the leading edge of addressing the ongoing drug epidemic. The province has made take-home naloxone kits available at over 1,480 locations, including almost 600 community pharmacies in the province.
There are now 21 overdose prevention sites in B.C., and nine supervised consumption sites are run by regional health authorities. According to the provincial government, over the past two years these sites were visited more than one million times with thousands of overdoses survived.

"My heart goes out to every family that has lost a loved one to overdose," Mental Health and Addictions Minister Judy Darcy said. "This crisis truly shows us that people from all walks of life - professionals, people living in poverty, tradespeople and many other sectors - are all affected by addiction."

<snip>

The BC Centre on Substance Use is looking at including improved addiction training to support prevention and treatment.
Dr. Evan Wood, the organization's executive director, says there is the need for policy changes to end prohibition, which creates the circumstances for the fentanyl market and continues to stigmatize substance use.

"This latest report confirms what those on the frontline already know all too well: this crisis is not slowing down," Wood said.
"If we're going to stop overdoses from happening, we urgently need to end the harms caused by prohibition while also implementing upstream responses that address the serious health and social consequences of untreated addiction."

According to the stats, between 2017 and 2018, 2,975 British Columbians died of drug overdoses.

https://www.castanet.net/edition/news-s ... htm#248749

Imagine if a seriel killer was behind this?
Only several are, the makers and dealers.
And demand is up.
So what is exactly driving the demand?

Also, not all those people were unemployed, in fact, a great many were employed, using and employed at the same time. So what does that say to an economic market where all kinds of workers are in demand and companies can't find enough workers in professions and trades? When employed people are dying at this rate!

So decriminalize the hard drugs, just do it. Make it easier to get help to kick the addiction.

The new overdose crisis, Arizona.

Mexican drug cartels killing each other over the right to sell to Americans.
Americans killing each other over the right to distribute.
Americans dying, because popping pills has less stigma than injecting.
And the pills have no quality control, so any pill can have any dosage, lots or little.
It's all Russian roulette with each pill, right?

So what is the solution?

A wall?


Article says it's the cars having the pills in them. Some cars are checked better than others?

Seems there has to be drug sniffing dogs at every border, every hour of the day. For each vehicle.
There is not a Wall problem, there is a "not enough trained dogs:" problem.

This is the solutions thread right?

How about implants in the arm for addicts? What can go wrong?

https://www.castanet.net/edition/news-s ... htm#250592

Wrong you ask?
If they still use to double up their dose.
Then what?

This is an incredible story.

ONE: no one on the first floor called 911. The woman on the second floor did, and she died in the fire because it was too late.

TWO: MacDonald, the man who died, ran in and out of a burning building saving THINGS and his family. Family I get, but the things were not seized and examined, so no one really knows if it was drug parafenalia used to manufacture drugs.

THREE: Evidence leads to a conclusion that drug manufacturing started the fire.

FOUR: The fire alarms were disconnected for some reason. Also, the landlord did not keep detailed records on checking the fire alarms.

Which should concern landlords, whose responsibility is it to keep fire alarms up and running? Theirs or their tenants?

FIVE: Innocent people died in a fire because of manufacturing drugs using butane inside a house where there were other people living speaks to a certain mindset, does it not?

In Vernon,

Guy lets his dogs out and finds out a guy was cooking drugs on his BBQ.

The story is sickening.

https://www.castanet.net/edition/news-s ... htm#252753

EVERY RCMP and IH building should have a safe needle container. All of them. Needles should be put in garbages if at all helped. BTW, I have driven with used needles in my car because of where I found them, and found a pharmacy which accepts them.
