    Good points. It’s this wing nut notion that somehow marijuana is the root cause of everything evil; could it be racist? I think so and it’s an opinion with no factual basis.
    Along with I read a recent editorial about flooding on the fountain. The Chieftain suggested that the fountain has only recently flood because of the growth of Colorado Springs. They forgot to mention the flood of 1965 and I’m sure many more. Can we check the history of the fountain Floods. It would be interesting

      Thanks, Dad. Let’s stick with one topic at a time. I don’t know anything about the recent Fountain Creek flooding.

    Perfect execution of the TRUTH

    I have to point out that perhaps in the heroin and opiate portion of your blog errors may have occurred. The first one was your trust in the CDC. That trust is based on what? Politicians when speaking about drugs especially the “illegal” ones have not once stated a fact as it pertains to use or abuse. How can this be with the CDC at their disposal? The government tells the CDC what it wants them to report and the business of drugs is precisely that, business.
    We are hearing ‘opiod’ a lot and I am lost as to what it means as opposed to ‘opiate’. I will assume it is the synthetic stuff to which they refer and that stuff is dangerous. Fentanyl is a synthetic ‘opiod’ developed around 1960 and is also made by clandestine labs. It is 100 times more potent than morphine. It is also mixed with heroin and sold on the black market. What politicians do not know and the propaganda machine has been churning out the misinformation is that nobody has ever died from a heroin overdose. We hear all the time about ODs ever since hair began to grow on the youth of the 1960s. What is never said in the reports from coroners about overdose deaths is that heroin is dangerous when mixed with other drugs. The danger is real when heroin use is mixed with alcoholic cocktails (hello? Janis?) or heroin is cut with Fentanyl. Fentanyl analogues can be 100,000 times more potent than Fentanyl itself.
    The opium poppy produces morphine from which heroin and codeine are derived are truly wonder drugs especially for pain. If your dentist or MD gave you codeine for pain in the form a white tablet with “3” on it you were fooling with a dangerous concoction! A pill such as hydrocodone/ibuprofen can be deadly but it is not the opiate but the Ibuprofen that kills. Too much ibuprofen or acetaminophen alone can cause liver failure and a quick death. It is added to keep one from enjoying the codeine.
    I will let decide on your own but advise you to check out Dr. Carl Hart who is a neuroscientist and expert on drugs plus a professor at Columbia University. He is a young black man who was headed down the usual dead end path but saw the light and now he is the man who could stop all the War on Drugs nonsense and put the DEA out of business.
    By the way, homelessness has many causes and the solution is simple, take away the funds taxpayers pony up for government to distribute to administrators who “help” homeless folks after paying themselves a nice salary and spend that money instead on buying those homeless folks a home. No questions asked, no drug or alcohol rules, no this and that, NO HOOPS just a house. Services such as ambulance and ERs would save thousands a month if these people were off the street and at home. How hard is that? Homelessness like the War on Drugs is a money maker so the idea will meet with stiff opposition.
