There's plenty of blame to go around for the current opioid epidemic. Big companies, big policies, and all the way down to individual doctors who acted as pushers. An interesting unintended consequence of decriminalized marijuana, is that it undercut the number 1 cash crop for drug cartels, causing them to push what they now have the competitive advantage in, heroin.

To start, I'm not for banning all guns. But to point out a rather large difference between guns or drugs, one only hurts/kills the user, the other has the potential for the user to hurt/kill others.

OK, but it's kinda stupid to just work on #1 and ignore #2&3&4.... when the numbers of deaths are still in the thousands with any of them.

We can't "ban" drugs, many of them are necessary. We don't WANT to ban guns, many of them are necessary … and they CAN even be fun. SO! We need to regulate drugs, see that those who need them, or want them for legitimate reasons, get them, those who shouldn't have them don't. As for the guns ……….

I agree. I also think it is kinda stupid to focus only on #2, which kills approximately as many as 3 and 4. All of which kill far far less than #1, which we rarely talk about.
