With several fentanyl-related overdoses recently — including a fatal OD at Bernstein High School — the Los Angeles Unified School District is taking action.
Superintendent Alberto Carvalho announced Thursday that naloxone, also known as Narcan, will be made available at all K-12 schools in the coming weeks, the LAUSD said in a press release.
“We have an urgent crisis on our hands,” Carvalho said in the release. “Research shows that the availability of naloxone along with overdose education is effective at decreasing overdoses and death — and will save lives. We will do everything in our power to ensure that not another student in our community is a victim to the growing opioid epidemic. Keeping students safe and healthy remains our highest priority.

“overdose education”....how about anti drug education?...how about drugs can kill you in an instant?....
Just another example of how crappy public schools are.
Don’t send your kids there.
So, having overdose medication at a school is now the new normal...the effective way to deal with the problem?
Asking the obvious, why don’t they go to the source?
All here get it.
This is certainly true, however, we have to ask ourselves how has narcotic addiction gone from a minor problem mostly concentrated in New York City and San Francisco circa 1960 to the massive epidemic it is today.Our culture is just depraved and rotten with corruption and our economic production base has been strip mined. About the first there is little anyone can really do about the second, reelect Donald Trump. Beyond that , the US is a seriously morally compromised society and most Americans have no idea it is, or that they lead immoral lives.
Just how do they plan on paying for it to be in the LA skruel distinct ?
The rising price of naloxone has become a major problem as tens of thousands of people die from opioid overdoses each year. However, most insurance plans cover naloxone, and many community-based organizations or public health programs provide the drug for free.
When buying naloxone, the price can vary greatly depending on your insurance plan and the type you want to buy. Generic naloxone can cost between $20 and $40 per dose, while Narcan can cost around $130 to $140 for a kit that includes two doses.
Open border policies will change Halloween for years.
A friend of mine is a beat cop in a mid-sized metropolitan city where the police have been carrying NarCan for a few years. He tells me the rate of overdoses has increased because the junkies know the First Responders will have NarCan to use on them.
I suspect Yutes (who still think they’re immortal) probably will behave similarly.
The only chemical antidote at my Grade School was #10 tin cans full of green sawdust the janitor had, to put on vomit.
I can still smell that stuff.. :/
