1. You can't force people to do anything. They won't take better care of themselves. 2. Opioids are designed for severe acute pain, or severe chronic pain. 3. Making narcan readily available gives users a false security blanket. More OD. More die. Narcan often won't reverse huge overdoses. Time, healthy liver, and kidneys are the best reversal agents. Time meaning you get intubated and a machine breathes for you until your hypothalamus wakes up and your autonomic drive to breathe returns. If you want new drugs, new medical ideas and procedures then tell the government to walk away and cut regulation. Profit isn't always evil. It's the driving force behind innovation. Quit demonizing doctors. Pain is subjective, if you go into an office and lie about pain and that NSAIDs and acetaminophen don't work. Then how is it the doctors fault he wrote you an opioid? Self account goes a long way. At the end of the day they swallow pills, they inject into their arms. The pill bottle States how you are to take the medication. Once a patient leaves the office you can't control how they use. Outpatient Doctors aren't writing pain pill rx as much. If they do, it's for like 2-3 pills. Just enough to get then to their next appointment. Methadone clinics don't help. Addicts will go there until the end of time and sell the methadone illegally. Can't stop it. Best way to stop is to never start. Bring 4th graders to a methadone clinic and an icu. Might scare them out of doing it. Otherwise I have no idea. Build a wall. Stop in flow of drugs. I know I said cut regulation but maybe the answer is to over regulate. Death penalty for possession of heroin. Death penalty for sale of heroin. That wouldn't work either. I dont know if there is a right or wrong answer. On the human side I agree cw, you dont' want to see a kid slumped over in a chair dead. And on the other side how do you Stop it before it's too late. How do you differentiate whats too harsh? And what isn't harsh enough.
