Recall my recent post about The Powers That Be’s sudden concern about opioids?
The Ambulance Paramedics of B.C. (APBC) are raising concerns that naloxone kits are being misused by illicit substance users and dealers.
Bronwyn Barter, the president of the APBC, says drug users have developed a false sense of security with naloxone or narcan, the antidote to the overdose of drugs such as fentanyl, carfentanil, heroin, morphine, and oxycodone.
“A lot of the people with addictions are doing different things with those kits. For example, some have a false sense of security, and what they can do is something called yo-yo-ing. They’ll drop a little bit of the naloxone, and they’ll drop a little bit of their choice of drug and they think that that will stop them from overdosing,” said Barter.

Clearly, what is needed is an antidote to the antidote, then. 😉
Just let teenage idiots who are dumb enough to abuse street opioids off themselves, and spare the gene pool!
I mean, it’s not like you can really save dumbasses from themselves, anyway; sooner or later, they’ll likely do themselves in, one way or another.
