from accidental overdose deaths
Accidental Overdose is the Number one killer of Americans aged 18-45. The numbers are REAL! Each life taken affects family, friends, loved ones, and communities like dominoes falling in line. Our government has filed lawsuits, tightened restrictions, added more stringent criminal penalties, formed task forces, and most emergency responders now carry life-saving Naloxone. But still the numbers are growing. The death toll rises.
Concerned citizens, government entities, business, and visitors have an opportunity to take matters in their own hands. The opportunity to rise up, feel their voices become strong and powerful and claim, "Enough is enough! No longer will we allow our friends, our family, our communities, our children to be murdered!"
It is our goal to see Opioid Overdose Rescue Kits to be installed anywhere and everywhere the public may gather. We demand the funds recovered from not only the Sackler family, not just other opioid manufacturers and distributors be used to fund this project.
We are based in Florida, and this state is our mission. We do hope other states will join on this mission to save lives, to take our destiny in our own hands! Peace be with all!
Follow along as we travel the state advocating, creating awareness, educating, reducing the stigma, securing pledges, and meeting new people in the NEW war on drugs.
We are scheduling approximately 3+ days per city to hit the streets to speak with local businesses and government officials to secure a pledge to use the Opioid Settlement funds to freely distribute Opioid Overdose Rescue Kits to the public, no questions asked as well as Fentanyl test strips if and when those are removed from illegal drug paraphernalia list in Florida. With boots on the ground, we hope to partner with communities in remembering those lost on International Overdose Awareness Day, August 31. Check the Simple Schedule found in the menu to track the schedule.
Please contact us if you are willing to join us scouring the streets and businesses in your local area to save lives. ANy and all assistance is appreciated whether it be meeting with politicians, organizing events, going business to business, community outreach, a spare room while we are in town, or financial contributions. Please contact us! Looking forward to working with you!
What is Fentanyl?
Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid that is similar to morphine but is 50 to 100 times more potent. It is a prescription drug that is also made and used illegally.
The illegally used fentanyl most often associated with recent overdoses is made in labs. This synthetic fentanyl is sold illegally as a powder, dropped onto blotter paper, put in eye droppers and nasal sprays, or made into pills that look like other prescription opioids. Some drug dealers are mixing fentanyl with other drugs, such as heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and MDMA. This is because it takes very little to produce a high with fentanyl, making it a cheaper option. This is especially risky when people taking drugs don’t realize they might contain fentanyl as a cheap but dangerous additive.
