Failing Heath Care

“Authorities say two addiction counselors at a suburban Philadelphia halfway house have died of opioid overdoses.

Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan says, “If anybody is wondering how bad the opioid epidemic has become, this case is a frightening example.”

When people are not responsible for their own health the system fails to be their keeper. Never in history has society been able to control people’s craving to get high. It comes down to parenting and teaching the wonder of living and learning. Virtue is not automatic it has to be learned. If not taught by caring parents then the risk is death. If all those in poverty have to look forward to is a life on the factory floor they will turn to drugs for a reward rather than the awe of learning and doing great things.

Another issue, “A new survey found that when it comes to recreational drug use, magic mushrooms appear to be the safest drug.

Only .2% of almost 10,000 people who reported taking psilocybin hallucinogenic mushrooms in 2016 reported that they needed emergency medical treatment, according to the annual Global Drug Survey. The survey, of more than 120,000 participants in 50 countries, found that the rates of emergency medical treatment for MDMA, LSD, alcohol and cocaine were almost five times higher.”
