  1. Why do you keep calling it a opioid crisis instead of a user crisis people know what they’re taking quit making excuses for the week they are guilty and they know it every time they take a drug in their heart that is illegal or not prescribed and being taken within the parameters of the prescription that they are violating the law so quit calling it a opioid crisis and Collett a user crisis which is exactly what it is

  2. One of the few substances I am totally in favor of them eradicating off the streets. They can do it. They unfortunately did it with LSD and now its next to impossible to obtain unless you just happen to know the right people. Totally misscheduled drug as a SCH 1 drug with no legitimate medical use and high potential for abuse…this is 100% wrong as if has numerous medicinal benefits and is completely non addictive.
    No deaths at all ever recorded from LSD alone. This drug has been ruled as big a danger as meth or heroin. Makes no sense.
    Taking a dose of LSD and going on a 12 hour trip, which is often a wonderful and life changing experience is much safer than the alternative medication offered to us for things like depression and addictions, personality disorders, PTSD.
    Alcohol and tobacco can both be bought and consumed to our hearts content and both are so much worse for you than all the acid you could possibly consume.
    Every time you chug on some Bush beer your destroying your organs. Everytime you puff on a cigarette, you damage your organs.
    Every time you take an average dose of LSD the entire brain lights up and is in communication with areas of the brain typically silent and dark. This is all this drug does is work out your brain. It doesn't cause vascular damage or brain damage or Alzheimer's or tumors.
    Do your own research and see for yourself the lies our own controlling government has brainwashed the masses into believing so that we will all remain slaves to the dollar bill and continue to care about material things. When your enlightened with some LSD the material world and our own grand egos are non existent and you can really see the beauty of what the world really is.
