800,000 Americans dead since 2000. No end in sight.
People are dying because they use alone and their drug supply is contaminated. In the age of fentanyl, every bag or counterfeit pill bought on the street could contain a lethal dose.
Stopping fentanyl at the border isn’t going to work.
The War on Drugs (Interdiction and Prohibition) has been a failure. Community naloxone only goes so far. To significantly decrease the deaths, we need safe injection sites, decriminalization and creation of a legal safe drug supply.
