measuring the toll of the opioid epidemic is tougher than it seems should be farly simple - death certificate shows OD deah - drug test confirms drugs in system at time of death - yup, thats a drug OD death maybe testing for opioids after death is problematic well then - just ask the cops or medics or firefighters - they will give you a real good idea if its a opioid death or not ----------------------------------------------- and as I am typing this - the local guy with the huge substance abuse problem is going door to door in the blizzard - looking for shoveling jobs and arguing with people - across the street from the police station - the cops all know him but no one can save this guy - cops nw giving him a ride to subway station - hopefully he will make it to a shelter in Boston - I think his family used to live on one of the richest streets here in town - apparently he is smart enough to stay away from opioids -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "massfire" group.
