We're gonna have to agree to disagree man, but pls don't put words in my mouth about ideas I'm trying to build.
The game in general has changed, at least in my neck of the woods. The powerful synthetic stuff has become the norm. Our mortality rate would be through the roof, had it not been for Narcan. Users would face some pretty sobering truths if all their friends were dead, and would confront their demons sooner rather than...never. Not the ideal reason/time to seek treatment, but I'm very confident it would be the case for more than a few.
Also, after a relatively short period of time most don't do it to feel good...just to not feel bad. I put 120mg of 30 blues up my nose for 3 years, I get it.
