A Victory over Opioids

A gushy article in my favorite newspaper announces the good news: there are states, the truly progressive ones, that are solving the opioid crisis! The more conservative, i.e. evil, states should learn how it’s really done.

“Wow, great news!” I think and latch on to the article only to discover that the great progressive victory over addiction consists of making more people switch from fentanyl to suboxone. They’ll overdose less, be less of a nuisance, and who cares that they are still addicted? I mean, other than the manufacturers of suboxone and Co and the very progressive politicians whose electoral campaigns they pay for.
