Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) appears set to oppose a bill increasing access to a lifesaving anti-overdose medication because of concerns rejected by public health experts that it could encourage more drug abuse

I'm going to try to get some HIV. With the quality of anti-retroviral therapies available these days, I see no reason not to.

Why not? People will surely stop overdosing if they know the drug isn't available, right?

Wait, there's a drug I can take to ease the severe withdrawl symptoms if I survive ODing on heroin?  Farking SWEET, that was the only thing holding me back.

Governor William J. Le Petomane: What the hell is this?

Hedley Lamarr: This is the bill that will convert the state hospital for heroin addicts into the William J. Le Petomane memorial drug shopping center for heroin addicts.

Governor William J. Le Petomane: [Standing up proudly] Gentlemen, this bill will be a giant step forward in the treatment of the insane heroin addict.

propasaurus: Nabb1: propasaurus: Nabb1: I think this is wrong, but I'm going to stop short of wishing death and OD on people, especially ones not directly responsible for this move.

If you live in Maine and either use heroin yourself or know someone who does, The Governor is actively wishing for their death.

First, I think anyone using heroin has a death wish of their own on some level, and second, I still think that's a bit much. Wishing death upon people is bad ju-ju.

Unless, of course, one is a Republican governor, apparently. You seem to reserve your outrage for random internet posters while hand-waving away a Republican elected official wishing death on his constituents.


Oh, is that what I do? Okay. I didn't mean to upset you with my not-wishing-death-on-people-and-not-being-sufficiently-outraged-to-you r liking. Would you be so kind as to direct me as to how I can express a level of outrage that is appropriate, and how that will effectuate a change in this policy, since apparently it is essential that I do so?

toraque: Fizics: It's a hard line to take but I can understand it. You need to take away the safety net if these people count on if they are ever going to have a hope of being something other than a drain on society. Are these addicts going to stop at one heroins if they think that a johnny take back is just a ambulance ride away? Hell no, they are going to do as many as they can and let the rest of society clean up this mess. I had a stepson who started with this garbage when he went to college and we didn't ask our neighbors to fix him, he has to pick up the pieces himself, not call for the taxpayers to help him!

Just so you know, heroin dosage is not measured in heroins. I believe the correct term is 'screaming heebie-jeebies'

That Guy Jeff: Fatal heroin overdoses in Maine quadrupled from 2011 to 2012

WARNING!Spin-like typing detected! More data needed! Follow the handy link:



I get it, drug-warriors are terrible people. But when your article pull stunts like "fatal overdoses quadruples" and has the Governor's "reasons for veto" described entirely by his opponent's speculation, I can't muster any support or sympathy with all the noise my bullsh*t detector is making.


What a coincidence that it corresponds with Governor Belief shutting down all services for drug users.

There is so much fark-headedness in this. Do we really want people in charge that will only change their opinions if Bon Jovi tells them they're wrong?

Bill: Hey man lets try heroin!
Dave: That sounds like a perfect idea and a wonderful way to enjoy our Saturday night except for one thing, I just read that if we OD we won't have naloxone to save us!
Bill:Oh, that sucks, lets pray and fill out applications to join the military instead.

sweetmelissa31: Rex Kramer - Danger Seeker: My city provides Narcan. If you were a heroin addict, would you rather live in a town/city that you know has Narcan, or one that does not have Narcan?

If I was a heroin addict, I'd probably want to live in a city with lots of heroin. That would probably be the only criterion.


Reminds me if the famous appearance of a 1930's bank robber who was interviewed by Johnny Carson in the 1970's.

Carson: "So, why did you rob banks?"

Robber: "That's where they keep the money."

madgordy: isn't this the big TEA BAG / Conservative meme?  if people have a safety net they are more likely to behaive in ways the teabagconservative people do not like or think is icky.  no condoms because sex without consequences is icky.   No abortion because raped women should not have been slutty.  No Social Security Insurance because Seniors should have saved for their own retirement and if they lose it, tough.  No WIC because poor women shouldn't have sex.  No public education, because Poor women shouldn't have sex.  No rehabilitiation because people who comit crimes should stay in jail forever.  no workers comp, medical insurance or unemployment insurance because it might enable people to advance in society if they can demand higher wages and better working conditions.  No unions because the same.  No gays in the military because they are afraid they might get turned on by men in showers or airport bathrooms.  No clean safe air, water, food, drugs, because you should move somewhere else and be rich.  No gun controls so kids can get guns and shoot themselves (and brown people).


all of those things cost money... how could we possibly pay for all of those things?  raise taxes on capital gains?  That would just be silly... the multi-generational wealthy wouldn't be able to afford dancing horses and garages with elevators like they deserve.  Why do you hate america?  Next I suppose you're going to say corporations should have fewer loopholes and pay more taxes...

What do your stupid facts matter when I have BELIEFS? And I believe the fastest way to solve our state's heroin problem is to encourage junkies to die as quickly as possible without interference from the state. Buncha do-gooder buttinskis need to mind their own beeswax.

But seriously... how did Maine end up with this pecan log as governor, anyway? I thought Maine was sane, but there I go, being all wrong again.
