At least 76 overdose on synthetic marijuana in 24-hours at US park

Quote:A man has been arrested after more than 76 people overdosed in 24 hours after taking synthetic marijuana suspected of being laced with fentanyl – an opioid.

The first overdoses were reported at Connecticut’s New Haven Green, a park close to Yale University, late on Tuesday night. But within three-and-a-half hours, 18 more people had collapsed at the park.

By 10pm on Wednesday, emergency crews had been called to 76 suspected overdoses, all of which occurred close to the park. Of those, 71 have been transported to hospital.

No one died.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Last night I was talking with a friend about legalization. He lives in Pennsylvania where it was recently legalized for medical use. What did the state gov do? The regulated it to the point it is nearly impossible to get. One of the ways they did that was to only approve a handful of doctors to write prescriptions for it. Those doctors were instantly inundated with new patients and now none of them are taking new patients.

Florida was just as bad. It won with a 76% approval but the gov wasn't happy so they made it very difficult to get. Only a handful of conditions qualify, it takes at least 6 months to get approved and there are a ton of hoops to jump through.

When will the politicians actually start doing what the people want?

It's been legal here in Oregon for quite some time and it seems like there is a dispensary on every corner (like Starbucks) and yet people are overdosing on opium related narcotics daily.
Law enforcement has decriminalized possession of small amounts of heroin and methamphetamine however the situation continues to be problematic due to the large volume of dangerous substances being brought in via the Mexican border.
As long as States like Oregon, Washington and California continue to provide sanctuary for criminals who enter the U.S. illegally peddling their dangerous narcotics, this situation will continue to take lives.

The border is the number one problem, take care of that first then address the rest.

That is one area where supporters of legalization kinda mislead people. Bud will not help the opioid addiction problem. It will help people with chronic pain but addicts are addicts. A few are able to use bud to get off of pills, but not many. There are substances that would help them if our government, in all its infinite wisdom, had not made them illegal.

Hi Totie! wave.gif

I remember a few years back there was an article about US Marshals visiting Finland to study border security, I'm sure it was even pre-Obama, but obviously nothing came out of it and it's been scrubbed from the internets.

This is a sad and complicated situation, isn't it. It indicates that for at least some, there is an inner need going unfulfilled. If that's correct, enforcement will always be playing catch up. I support enforcement for hard drugs because hard drugs do produce sick people and sick people do sick things. But it's not entirely effective to catch people AFTER they are addicted and using (and hurting people including families who end up being super dysfunctional.)

My latest book, No Pain, No Gain? Nope, Pain! Only Gain" that would deal with this issue and so much more was going to be coming out this month.

So of course, the latest draft on my computer disappeared. I know better than to highlight and copy from one document to the other. Moreover there were two names for the various drafts, but neither one exists any more.

This can mean only one thing. I'm the victim a malicious attacker who knows what I'm doing and is eliminating what I've done.

The book provides a one-second technique that is hardwired in our brains that automatically brings forth loving kindness, joy, and healing. When someone feels that way, they have less attraction to do drugs or to drink too much alcohol.

Let's make 5G safe by installing zirconium ceramic bricks to the cell masts. It will save the providers billions of dollars quickly by reducing interference.

Can you ask yourself "Why do I love discovering how my protons can experience Loving Kindness?"
