As I’m sure you all know, Boulder, Colorado has a fentanyl issue and it’s killing people. In fact, three teens have died in the last week due to fentanyl related overdoses- they died from something preventable. Teens should be able to equip themselves with the tools they need to save their own lives and the lives of those they love. More importantly, they should be able to ask for help without fearing punishment. Schools should offer free Narcan and drug testing mechanisms to its students along with training sessions on how to properly assist someone in an emergency beyond just calling 911. For those struggling with addiction, schools should offer free substance abuse counseling; a resource students should feel comfortable using without their parents automatically being informed. Saying “don’t do drugs” isn’t enough. People- kids- are dying and we know how to prevent it.  If it can save lives, why not offer such resources?
