  Guns? Yes!

Narcan? Hmm, we don't know about that, might send the wrong message.

We weren't allowed to have aspirin or Tylenol when I was in school.  Not from the nurses, nor from our own lockers.

Sounds good: deny advanced healthcare to the ones who, of sound mind, eschew basic healthcare, and give life-saving healthcare at the cost of about $50 a pop to people with psychological conditions that led them to self medicate and eventually become addicted.

Unless you feel that antivaxxers also suffer from psychological maladies and should be treated as such.

We could until my junior year, when a classmate overdosed on tylonol. It's apparently quite easy and quite dangerous. After that nothing really changed except keeping quiet about having it.

The only problem I see is using tragedy to lobby for a requirement that every school have Narcan. Then they jack up the price. Like they did with epi pens.

If you want to make your choice to never pay into the healthcare system, you can at least do everyone the common courtesy of shoving your blatant stupidity up your own ass sideways.

Overdosing on acetaminophen means you possibly wrecked your liver.  It's such a farkin' weak-ass painkiller that people who don't care about labels take too much hoping that it'll work better.  Often NSAIDs are better, but you can wreck your kidneys by being stupid, too.

Also people pay more attention to the label than what they actual medicine is: they will grab Tylenol for joint pain, Tylenol cold and sinus, and Tylenol migraine and think they are taking three different pain killers.

Last year when various pain killers were going out of stock if you simply looked for something branded differently you could find plenty of the same stuff on the shelf, just at different dosages.

"The powerful opioid fentanyl has been showing up in marijuana, illicit pills and other substances accessible to school-age children", propagandaexperts say.

Dealers sell drugs for profit. Follow the money. Show me one documented case of fentenyl laced pot.

Acetominophen works perfectly well, especially if you alternate it with ibuprofen every 4 hours or so. 

But yeah, I have seen people take a fistful of 500mg acetominophen and chase it with a shot of vodka and been like lol good luck pal.

I honestly think resuscitating this system is our only shot. Reason being, if the powers of nihilism are already making it such a clusterfark despite what institutions we currently have in place to try to make things better; what chance would we have against the nihilists in a world with none? It would give the nihilists the home field advantage.

True, but it is better than aspirin or ibuprofen to relieve pain and fevers.  Plus anyone on blood thinners or with bleeding issues really can't use NSAIDs.  It has its place.

Well, heroin is already legalized.  It's called Oxycotin & Oxycodone.  If you find the right crooked doctor, that stuff is easier and cheaper to get than pot.

All teachers should pack at least two guns!!! But Narcan has no place in our schools!!

Boy, it sure is fun to take two arguments, slap them together, and pretend they're coming from someone. Much easier than actually addressing anything a real human says!

Once, when I was considering suicide (long story), I came across a description of death from acetaminophen overdose. To keep it short, your internal organs are fatally damaged, but you can linger for up to a week -- conscious, aware of the stupid thing you did, maybe regretting it and wanting to live. And -- so the article claimed -- there was now nothing that could be done to save you. (In fact, a liver transplant sometimes works.)

It was enough to make me more cautious of acetaminophen ever afterward.

She also lied about having an MBA from WVU to get her position as an executive. When exposed, the school miraculously conferred the degree upon her and more than half the credits she was missing suddenly were found. The Manchins used their political power to strong-arm the school into conferring the degree.. which was then revoked.

Just some old-school corruption.

Why are American parents sending their kids back to places with overdose and school shootings all over? That's just not what school is anywhere else, and it reflects poorly on the parents to lobby for keeping them open.
