Subject: Advisory Message: South Brunswick Police Officers Save 21-year-old man
*** begin quote ***
South Brunswick Police Officers quick actions saved the life of a 21-year-old Township man early Sunday morning. At 4:11am police received a 911 call from a man who said his friend had overdosed on heroin and was unconscious in a backyard. Officer Scott Bucca and Officer Marcus Leysath responded to the residence off Deans Lane and were directed to the backyard by the friend. They found the victim unresponsive with minimal breathing. Officers used the medicine Naloxone to prevent the heroin from slowing and stopping the victim’s breathing. The officers reported that within minutes of administering the medicine the victim began to breathe normally. The Monmouth Junction First Aid Squad and paramedics transported the victim to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick for treatment.

While any tragedy averted is good, it has to trace back to the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs”!
If all “illegal” drugs were for sale at WalMart and Walgreens, then addicts would be safe from adulteration and varying concentrations.
Addiction is a MEDICAL problem, not a LEGAL problem.
And, if “drugs” were no longer illegal, then they wouldn’t be “kool”.
One of the reasons that USP http://www.usp.org/ was formed was to ensure safe drug standards.
So once again, Gooferment creates a problem and then “finds” a solution that requires more Gooferment!
