"Utahns have a voracious appetite for prescription pills. That is just a fact," Brian Besser, Drug Enforcement Administration assistant special agent in charge, said Thursday. "Drugs that come in a bottle are abused in Utah."

In addition to opioids, methamphetamine, heroin and even a resurgence in cocaine are problems in the Beehive State, he said.

"The methamphetamine epidemic in this state right now is only being eclipsed by the media that is given to the opioid epidemic," Besser said.

Utah is No. 1 in the nation in overdose deaths due to meth, he said.

On top of that, there is now also the problem of drug dealers lacing all of these drugs with fentanyl, he said. And in the schools, marijuana is "rampant."

That's interesting; all the meth addicts I've talked to say it's impossible to overdose on methamphetamine.

WTF?

Meth can kill you. It's a stimulate and can shut you down permanently if you take too much.

Methamphetamine Overdose Death

Methamphetamine abuse reached its pinnacle in 2005. At that time, they said that overdosing had caused almost 4.500 deaths in the US. This is according to a report by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

It is those terrible Utah license plates that says....elevate Utah. (And all the crap that goes with that in this State!)

I wonder if self medication via alcohol would actually reduce some of the deaths from meth? Or perhaps at least having a healthier attitude about drug addiction would help. Calling it a sin only adds to the anxiety some addicts must feel and that plus family shunning has to be a heavy contributor to this problem in Utah.
