OPIOID CRISIS: “SAFER SUPPLY” IS AS LETHAL AS EVER
Landmark studies: hydromorphone and morphine are the new buprenorphine and methadone, just as lethal

There is nothing new about “safer supply” or “risk mitigation” medical prescriber practices implemented in British Columbia and elsewhere in Canada in desperate attempts to reduce lethal opioid overdoses, apart from the opioids supplied – hydromorphone and morphine – being more potent and less controlled than their predecessors, buprenorphine and methadone.
Nor anything new, as we will see here, in the ways that the medical/media collusion uses deception and cultivated incompetence to distort and hide the ineffectiveness and lethality of the approach.
