On The Lynda Steel Show Is Kyla Lee
Almost a dozen Canadians died every day from opioid overdoses last year. Since 2016, more than 8,000 have lost their lives, primarily to fentanyl.
In the States more than 70,000 people died of a drug overdose in 2017, the highest number on record and 9.6 percent more than the previous year.
What is the solution? Kyla Lee, a Criminal Lawyer with Acumen Law, thinks the BC Government must commit to providing a safe supply of opioids to drug addicted individuals. Could that make the difference?
“It is using government powers to stop the drug trafficking operations. As the person you interviewed who is the manufacturer of these drugs says this is cost-effective for the drug dealers, they are making a lot of money and they can make it cheap and they can get a lot of profit really quick. If you take all that away from the underground black market and you give it to the people for free, you can stop them from getting poisoned drugs.”
