Recently hospitals in Portland have seen higher numbers of heroin overdoses, including two fatalities. The cause is a stronger and more potent form of the drug. So the long and the short of is, Portland Police seem to be taking the "be safe" approach over the "don't do it" approach.

I've long been a believer that if given a chance, most addicts would rather be clean deep down. Instead of what sounds life a ceasefire on war on drugs, let get these people help. There is a huge difference between pot and smack in my mind. We could also put awareness and resources to finding the supply chain coming into Portland.

I hear every day "addiction is a sickness." Let's get these folks help and get them on a path to sobriety and not just teach them a safer way to use by putting up fliers? It make no sense to me. Your thoughts.
