I agree Silver. I would also like to see the arrest rate of drug dealers increase. Most of the arrests are users. We need to put the dealers out of business then we won't need all these kits, programs, rehabs and interventions that don't seem to work in most cases. Come on Sheriff put those dealers behind bars!

The selfish part of me wants to say, like in the last paragraph, they're addicts and let them take that risk. But alas, I come to myself and realize I feel bad for those who mistakenly take too much or those who are addicted. Getting them back to health is the first step towards bringing them back to those who love them. It's good for first responders to have this and be trained, but for abusers this is just a bandage on something that needs stitches. What I'm getting at is this is a great resource, but does very little for drug problems except keep players in the game or give someone another chance to clean up their life.
