Compelling doc on fentanyl problem. Living in a city, it's hard to see this on so many street corners, and the problems it causes neighborhoods, and not be hardened by it...taking a callous view of those on the street. 
It's a complex problem, but I think getting these people to camps or areas where they have access to basic resources and safer alternatives might be a good idea. And why can't this be funded with the billions of opioid settlements that are now coming in?

Heartbroken Dave Grohl sobs as he returns to US after Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins

An emotional Dave Grohl sobbed as he hugged his band mates and friends at LAX on Saturday night, a day after Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins died of a 'cardiovascular collapse' from a drug binge while the band was on tour in Colombia. Grohl, 53, appeared heartbroken as he hugged a man who appears to be manager John Silva after the band got back to the US. Also pictured arriving were guitarists Pat Smear and Chris Shiflett, keyboardist Rami Jaffee and background singer Samantha Sidley. They landed on a private plane before they were photographed grieving the tragic loss. Hawkins' heart weighed double that of men his age as an autopsy finds the musician suffered a 'cardiovascular collapse' after binging on a cocktail of drugs including heroin, marijuana, and opioids, investigators have said. Forensic experts are said to have discovered it weighed 'at least 600 grams', double the average of 300 to 350 grams, during an examination following his shocking death at a luxury hotel in Colombian capital Bogota on Friday. Investigators have concluded the 50-year-old suffered cardiovascular collapse after binging on a cocktail of drugs, respected Colombian news magazine Semana reported. It also said authorities had confirmed the Foo Fighters drummer had overdosed on heroin mixed with antidepressants and benzodiazepines, anti-anxiety drugs known as benzos.

Hobart brothers decide to rob their dealer after running out of money and ice


Jake Laurence Ford, 25, and his younger brother Angus James Ford, 23, were sentenced in the Supreme Court in Hobart on Wednesday to two years and six months in prison and 14 months, respectively, after they stole almost $2,000 in cash and a quantity of ice from "a man who had been selling ice to them".

After regaining consciousness, the man reported the robbery to police.

Chief Justice Blow said the incident has had a "substantial psychological and financial impact" on the complainant.

The brothers were also ordered to repay the man $1,900

Thanks haresfur.

Dumb, provocative question:  Are women who support the widespread availability of alcohol part of the 'rape culture'?

Yeah, I was just saying, mismanaged biz, mismanaged employees, etc.

That is why their company failed. less to do with the drugs, more to do with the lack of structure and ineffectiveness of the biz that carried over into the home.

I can understand a drug policy if the workplace safety depends on it. Otherwise, it's b.s. If an employee can come in and do their job responsibly, it's nobody's biz. And, do they do the same for alcoholics?

That's an understatement! {#Lol}

I've worked in state/local government agencies for many years, and all are required to have policies/procedures for compliance with the Drug Free Workplace Act. The "State of Maryland Substance Abuse Policy" went into effect in 1991 and hasn't changed a whit since that time! This resulted from the Federal Omnibus Drug Abuse Act of 1988.

The State of Maryland policy also addresses alcohol use...hence the generic "substance abuse policy".
