In this episode, Dr’s J, Ward, and Praz discuss the opioid crisis and how it is being combatted. Along the way they cover getting high off antidiarrheal meds, the antidote to opioids, how narcan works, the origins and growth of the drug crisis, the cost and locations of naloxone, new opioids that target only the injury instead of the whole body, opioids that provide relief without pleasure, the problem with the pain scale, dangerous supplements, and even biohacking your skin to prevent getting high. So sit back and relax as we round up whats new in the world of medical research!

Note: There are some sound issues at the end of the episode when my mic died and I had to switch to the laptop. Audible, but echo-y
