#1 Self protecting study. For example, I hurt my knee. The docs give me an opioid drug for the pain. I get hooked on them. The knee heals and I no longer have the script for opioids. So I go out and find them on the street. The pills are pricey and hard to find so I shift to heroin or fentanyl. Eventually I OD. This is bull.....

#2 But Herb says if the gummint doesn't stop you from od-ing it's all good.

#3 All this is helpful in directing resources where they can do the most good. But how do we stop the heroin and fentanyl overdoses? That's been a question for most of my lifetime, and I don't see any good answers. I wish someone could.

#4 Some of these OD's are like Gump's box of chocolate. Never can tell what's in the juice until it's too late.
