CDC throws $12 million at opioid epidemic

In vain attempt to “do something” to solve crisis.

The only solution to this absurdly tragic epidemic is to end the drug war.  Which means legalizing non-opioid based painkillers, like marijuana and kratom.  Fast-track cannabis-based painkillers and prescribe them instead of opioids.  Legalize the production and sale of heroin, and regulate its purity.  This will end fentanyl-laced heroin that brings instant death.  If any money is to be spent at all, spend it on clean needles and a sterile, safe environment for heroin addicts to safely shoot up.  Do 60,000 Americans really need to die this year?
