IN THE NEWS- NDP petition support for bill that will create safe drug supply and prevent overdoses

MP Gord Johns was in Halifax on Monday trying to drum up support for a bill he believes should it pass could prevent thousands of deaths from drug overdoses. Both addicts and occasional users of recreational drugs are now at greater risk of drying since a substance called fentanyl- which is 100 times more powerful than morphine and 50 times more powerful than heroin- has been contaminating or "poisoning" the supply of illegal drugs. 

"I live in a community of 18,000 people. Just in the last year, I know six people who died because of a poisoned drug supply," said Johns.
