Fentanyl crisis a growing concern

Dear editor,

John Kay of Steppenwolf perhaps foretold of the fentanyl crisis 50 years ago on the song “The Pusher” off their first album.

He sings, “I seen a lotta people walkin’ around with tombstones in their eyes/But the pusher don’t care if you live or if you die”.

Nothing changes do it?

The US experienced its worst opioid death and overdose year in history in 2017.

Fentanyl is worse than LSD, Angel Dust or PCP, or any of the drugs of the late 60s (fatality wise at least).

So if you are going to “crank” to get high with meth or heroin, use the buddy system and don’t forget the NARCAN kit.
