Re: DL Planes to Carry Narcan for Drug Overdose Prevention

Since it seems that the epicenter of the "opioid epidemic" I in the southern Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia area, does that mean that people in that area have a higher-than-average level of addictive personalities? If so, wouldn't that take it out of physiology and put it into "lea...
