Letter: Narcan is not the answer to deadly heroin epidemic

Narcan is not the answer to deadly heroin epidemic

I am writing in response to The News article, “23 dead here from opiates over 11 days.” Does it not strike anyone else as outrageous, the fact that a very sick couple from halfway across the state knew where to come, Buffalo, and who to contact, a pusher, to get their poison? And apparently the local drug enforcement agents don’t know?

Millions are spent in these agencies. For God’s sake, get these murderers off our streets. One less pusher could mean 10-plus fewer overdoses. Narcan is not the answer.
