*Huffs* At least in my day we talked to each other! Even if it was mindless stoned babble.

I reckon this is because X and Y, the last generations to grow up thinking drugs are cool, are ageing into their 40’s. I know it’s a massive generalisation but I do think the culture has changed in highschool. Drugs not as glorified.

Is it possible Libs are holding onto government as long as they constitutionally can to try to get Adani approvals through before they go into caretaker mode? 🤔

The problem isn't that folks with addictions are "over-represented" in drug policy research & literature. The problem is that people with addictions are seen as fundamentally unreliable, untrustworthy & require "respectable" advocates to speak on their behalf.

Looks like the Buzzfeed reporter, who has always stuck by the story, has been vindicated. Now, I wonder what excuse all those dems who swore they’d call for impeachment “if the story were true” are going to trot out?

I think for most people the weaker opioids in small doses are more than enough to manage strong pain. Fent etc is for people who have chronic pain and build enormous tolerances. Jesus the cannot have been fun! Glad you’re okay!

Never had either but fentanyl (and the even stronger carfentanyl) are exponentially stronger than any other opioid. Even so, accidental exposure would have to be intravenous to be a problem, and that would be basically impossible.

“Misinformation is itself a hazardous substance”. Great reporting from the NYT on the ridiculous panic over accidental fentanyl exposure.

There are many factors involved in family violence. This article does mention alcohol about halfway through. However the headline and the first word in the article single out methamphetamine. Typical media - just blame drugs.

Totally agree. We need to dispense with the whole “X is addictive” vernacular- it just reinforces the unhelpful notion that the substance itself is to blame, and gives policy makers an excuse to pursue law-enforcement solutions to healthcare problems. “We must eliminate X!”

Stimulant deaths always get the most media attention. Opioid and alcohol deaths lag far behind. If only it were the other way round.

I might be behind on this but, why would anyone stick a used needle into a roll of toilet paper? Seems like the poster is a bit of a creative thinker.

6000 Australians die each year from . Also completely preventable. Though this statistic doesn't make a good headline.
