Safe Huts in the Opioid Avalanche

Science Might Save Us Again

Killing more Americans than guns or auto accidents, the opioid epidemic is a 
monster in our midst.


As I noted below, there are promising scientific advances in pain killers (and if you've experienced serious pain, you surely want to kill it!) that might help, big time.

This article in Science News covers research in this vital matter in clear, layman-readable prose, as usual.  It also summarizes what's happening in pain research on the controversial substances, kratom and cannabis, which certainly ought to be in the discussion.

I'm encouraged. 

My pessimistic side fears Prez Trump will cut research money or tighten the regulatory screws and make research on weed and kratom even more difficult.
