    Our media ignores what's going on in our neighbor to the north (as well as the south) and it's a true shame. British Columbia has been all but an open drug operation for more than a decade. Could this be a sign of what will happen in other areas?

    Every part of the province is affected, but Vancouver continues to be the epicentre of the crisis, said Lapointe. Fifty-one people died of illicit drug overdoses in Vancouver alone in December.

    Four out of five of the overdose deaths were men and more than half were between the ages of 30 and 49

    Fentanyl not only provides a high-----it provides fantastical hallucinations---people really love it-----and it is SYNTHESIZED----thus relatively cheap

    Fentanyl is also used as an anesthetic. I had an operation and it was administered to me. All I remember is closing my eyes then a second later opening my eyes and it was all over. No nothing.....No dreams, no visions...nothing.
