Say Good Bye To Free Narcan, A New Policy Gives Junkies Three Strikes And They Are Out, Or Dead, Whatever Works
Merry Christmas! Or at least it’s Christmas over in Middleton Ohio where there is a proposal to remove free Narcan from repeat users. Would that not be a perfect gift to give over the holidays? Narcan wrapped in a cute little box, but with a warning that if you keep shooting drugs into your arms, we are going to let you die… Want another glass of eggnog?
“A controversial proposal has been made in Middletown to deal with heroin overdoses.
“We are faced with stress on our services, particularly the EMS services where we can do six to eight opioid overdose runs a day,” said Paul Lolli, fire chief of Middletown.
The number of overdoses jumped this year. Last year, there were 532 overdoses. So far, only halfway through 2017, there are already 577.
Halfway through the year and there are already more overdoses than the entire previous year. Narcan is obviously the problem. It enables junkies. It gives them a safety net. It makes them less afraid to overdose because they know a simple thing like Narcan can bring them back from the dead. Don’t worry about being able to afford it on your own, please feel free to use the money you earned giving head behind a dumpster somewhere, and use it on your heroin. The rest of the world will continue to take it in the rectum, pay our taxes, and provide the free Resurrection.
Also last year, the department spent more than $11,000 on Narcan. This year, $30,000 has been spent on it.
I’m sure Middleton can use that money for police, firefighter, ems, or school funding. Sucks that it’s going toward people who don’t care enough about living.
This is a result of more overdoses and the increasing strength of the drugs addicts are using, officials said.
The number of deaths from overdoses is on track to increase, as well. Last year, there were 74 deaths. So far this year, there are 51.
I say good riddance. There are many people in the world who are sick and struggling to live because they have a disease or terminal illness that they could not prevent. It would be nice if funds can go to health care for those people who are facing serious struggles trying to survive.
Leaders are frustrated trying to find a solution.
Look no further, Dan Picard, a city council member has created the perfect solution. Let these addicts fend for themselves.
City council member Dan Picard is proposing a three strikes system. After the first two overdose rescues, the person would perform community service for the equivalent amount of money used on the lifesaving response.
If they want to continue to shoot drugs, let them. Once they run out of their free Narcan, let them earn and repay what they have cost the city. What’s so hard about that? They should walk around and pick up all drug paraphernalia in the city.
The third strike is a bit more controversial.
“If the dispatcher determines that the person who’s overdosed is someone who’s been part of the program for two previous overdoses and has not completed the community service and has not cooperated in the program, then we wouldn’t dispatch,” said Dan Picard, Middletown city council member.
SAVAGE LEVEL 100! I can see it now:
“Hello Operator, there is a person over dosing, we need an ambulance!”
Operator: *Checks system* NOPE! This junkie is on strike THREE!!!!!!!!
TOO BAD, SO SAD! If you want to keep harming yourself, by all means, do so. It’s your CHOICE to do it. However, to expect tax payers to fund your CHOICE is wrong. You need Narcan? You get it two times for FREE. If you don’t complete your duty to repay back your two free doses of Narcan, then you simply end up like this…
Wowsers, that’s quite the meme. Don’t get offended, it’s not a real junkie dying. It was photoshopped, but do you get the picture? No more free Narcan is what Massachusetts NEEDS! Here in this state people struggle to get epi-pens, prescriptions, and decent health and dental without paying an arm and a leg.
The fire department said they are required by law to provide Narcan if they do respond to an overdose.
Picard said this plan is not aiming to solve the drug problem; it’s an attempt to save the city’s finances.
This man is savage. In other words, he is more concerned with the money the city is losing than people who make the CHOICE to die. I like his style. He needs to come on over to the good old Massachusetts and implement some of his great ideas here. Tired of people who work hard to survive and live struggling to pay for their healthcare and medical costs, as well as prescriptions. Then we have people who play Russian Roulette with their lives getting everything for free. When is it going to end? N-E-V-E-R if Narcan doesn’t have a limit here in this state.
“We’ve got to do what we’ve got to do to maintain our financial security and this is just costing us too much money,” Picard said.
Until legal advisers look at the plan proposed by Picard, the fire department is applying for grants and accepting donations to fund more Narcan.”
I can’t believe it has gotten so bad in this small town in Ohio that they need donations from hard working people to keep junkies alive. Usually people who have kind hearts and donate are people who are just making ends meet. Bless their souls. I refuse to give my money away to anyone but people I care for, and that’s a tiny circle. There is no way I am donating money I worked hard for to help someone who won’t even help themselves.
I’m ready for the shit storm in comment section!! I am going to be ahead of the game here and already type out some responses… Every time you see this in the comment section, please give yourself a point. The person with the most points will get free Narcan and be able to dangle it in front of an OD’ing junkie the same way you dangle keys in front of a baby… “Here you go, awwww, look at this Narcan, do you want it??”
What to look for:
“It’s a disease, not a choice!”
“Can’t wait for this to happen to your kids so you know what it feels like”
“You’re lucky you don’t have to suffer with an addict in your family, you have no clue!”
“I hope you die” – That’s one of my favorites!
“You’re heartless, what a loser, you bully!”
“One of these days you or someone you love will die of an overdose, and you will regret what you said!”
“Research has shown this is a disease not a choice!”
“There are people who get lung cancer from smoking and they don’t get this criticism”
“What about fat people who have diabetes? Is that not a choice!”
“I hate Feisty, this was so mean, I am hurt in my private parts” – This turns me on. I love to be hated. I live for that kind of stuff. I siphon your hate out of your soul and mix it in with my coffee in the morning. It’s how I survive. Believe me, I don’t care.
MY ULTIMATE FAVORITE:
“I normally agree with everything Turtleboy writes, but this is just atrocious and disgusting. <insert insults here, as well as physical threats of violence, or death wishes>
