Overdoses Like a Vietnam War Every Year

   In 2014 there were an estimated 47,000 opioid overdose deaths. More than car crashes and nearly as much as the entire Vietnam War.
    The ideas being looked at include injection rooms where the process can be done under supervision.

I find it kind of in poor taste, to compare the weak selfish self centered voluntary drug abusers who died, with the brave young citizens who often had no choice, but obliged anyway, to fight for our country.

Wouldn't it be a more effective use of taxpayers dollars to just set these up as suicide rooms. Advertise that it's free and clean, and you will be given the high to end all highs. Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, we will free you from your "illness".

What a bunch of bull S---- ! What's next, setting up givernemn funded gorge-atariums, to pump type2 diabetics full of donuts ?

These people are running around ripping off the stores,their families,neighbors,and strangers,all so they can get high,and now we are supposed to baby them by giving them a safe place to get stoned? GTF outta here,let em OD if that is what they want.
