Help the Kids of Drug Addicts and Alcoholics

Posted under Maryland, Young People

A young girl who writes for her high school paper in Baltimore recently wrote an opinion piece that was published in the Baltimore Sun. She talked about the drug problem in Baltimore and how communities need to get together to help addicts.

“This problem should matter because these things affect other people,” she said. “If people have better parents, they can achieve more success in life. If we take care of this problem, children will do better in school.”

And she should know – her mother is an addict. more…

What Are Your Pain Relief Alternatives to Dangerous Drugs?

Posted under Heroin, Maryland, OxyContin, Painkillers

I recently read an article about the ‘seeds of addiction’. It’s about the current opioid and heroin addiction epidemic being started because of people being in pain. The ‘pain’ referred to was cancer pain – which can be devastating. But the major drug being used to fight it was OxyContin. A very strong, very addictive painkiller, which doctors started prescribing for every minor pain and discomfort under the sun. But there are alternatives to taking these dangerous pills. more…

Number of Babies Born Addicted Still on the Rise

Posted under Drug Addiction, Heroin, Mississippi, Opiates, OxyContin, Painkillers, Prescription Drugs, Tennessee, Young People

Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) is the result of babies born addicted to opioids. A few years ago I reported statistics on how many babies go through the hell of being born addicted to prescription drugs and having to go through the torture of withdrawal. Drug withdrawal is torture for everyone– you can imagine how bad it must be for a baby, just out of the womb, their body very delicate, and with no understanding of why they hurt.

The drugs they’re being born addicted to are opioids. more…

When someone’s in the ER to save their life after they overdosed on drugs, it’s the perfect time to get them started on getting the addiction help they need.

There are nearly 400 places in Colorado where you can buy marijuana. Some are chain stores – one owner might have several shops. One of those owners, Brian Ruden, who had four stores as of last year and is still opening more, was recently stopped from opening another shop right next to a drug addiction treatment facility and two blocks from two different schools  – a college and a prep school.

Governor Mike Pence of Indiana declared a public health emergency four days ago in an effort to get an HIV outbreak under control. Although he has banned needle exchanges, 90 new HIV cases in the last few months in one small county convinced him that he needs to temporarily lift that ban.

Jail Isn’t the Answer, But Does That Make Being Stoned Okay?

Posted under Colorado, Legal Issues, Marijuana, THC

Colorado’s first annual report on marijuana shows the state sold 4.8 million edible marijuana products—some for medical use, and some for recreation. Nearly enough for one for every person in the state. Oh, wait, more than 2.25 million of Colorado’s 5+ million people are under 21 and can’t legally buy the stuff. So, that means there were enough edible marijuana products for everyone to have two!

And when you consider that only 67 of Colorado’s 321 jurisdictions opted in to allowing retail or medical sales of marijuana, that decreases the number even further. So … let’s just say that quite a few people in Colorado got stoned last year. more…
