MySafe scheme for addicts aims to help reduce overdose deaths in Canadian city

A vending machine for powerful opioids has opened in Canada as part of a project to help fight the Canadian city’s overdose crisis.

The MySafe project, which resembles a cash machine, gives addicts access to a prescribed amount of medical quality hydromorphone, a drug about twice as powerful as heroin.

Dr Mark Tyndall, a professor of epidemiology at the University of British Columbia, came up with the project as part of an attempt to reduce the number of overdose deaths in the city, which reached 395 last year.

What happens if the package gets stuck in the spiral dispenser thingy and doesn't fall down to the slot?

Do you get your $1.25 back?

In that case, the addict will likely fly into a rage and destroy the vending machine.

Yeah sure.... heroin should be a right.

The snowbound sister-fuckers to our north should be completely ostracized.

“I think ethically we need to offer people a safer source,” he said. “So basically the idea is that instead of buying unknown fentanyl from an alley, we can get people pharmaceutical-grade drugs.””

I disagree with the esteemed liberal doctor

people who are stupid enough to buy drugs from a pusher in an ally are no great loss to society if they OD

Better to learn from Nancy Reagan and try to reach the people who have not been hooked yet

So cigarette machines are illegal or not as common as in the old days. But opioid machines are legal.

They are going to have to make them stronger than atms. You're giving them a big supply of drugs. Liberals are crazy.

Let me get this straight, they got rid of cigarette vending machines in the late 20th century because they encouraged cigarette smoking among unsupervised kids but they put in opioid vending machines in the 21st century? WTF?

With this new arrangement being in Canada, I wouldn't be surprised if the stuff ends up being more expensive than that. Right me if I am wrong, but aren't things more expensive there compared to here in the states?

God bless you always!!!
