Almost all of us who received prescription opioids for severe pain, like my kidney stones, used these drugs appropriately and were never in any danger of becoming addicted. Health care policy should not be driven by misbehavior of addicts.
The homeless shelter / services industry all across America spends umpteen millions of dollars to little or no effect. We need to start over from scratch, because "compassion" isn't a cure for homelessness.
Why they think I should be matched with roommates who belong in hospice care, where they could be doped up so they feel no pain while waiting for the Grim Reaper, is something that makes no sense to me at all. Hungry Asylum is FUBAR!
I lived as a homeless camper year-round in Boulder, CO for a decade, and in my former life I worked as a farm & ranch hand back in Missouri (which has a thing called humidity in summer). The latter is much more challenging, believe me! Boulder's homeless need to stop whining. https://t.co/ddHct1FDPw
