Default Re: can we discuss epidemics?

Yeah I had a friend die of opiate OD while overseas. My best guess is something stronger than he expected, but it's also possible he'd been clean for a bit and didn't get the dose right - even experienced addicts can make mistakes. Combination drug use is another possibility - if you have a few drinks, some benzos and then shoot up your much more likely to die. And I can't rule out deliberate OD either. Since this happened in a country with severe penalties for drugs I wonder whether he was with someone who could have called emergency services but who ran out of fear instead.

For these reasons I support legal but well regulated opiates.
