Why?

Nope I don't think so. I know a lot of first responders and they don't like the fact that have to carry this. I've heard several stories about people coming to with a violent reaction, not to mention the ones they've had to use on multiple times in a week.

One time & you're out IMO! If you get into heroin and OD and are injected and brought back and can't realize you're lucky you got a second chance, then, you're on your own as far as I'm concerned.

Our local police departments have been carrying Narcan since last year since the heroin overdoses where going through the roof. It would be great if the person would learn from this, but most of them don't and now believe if the cops get there fast enough they can be saved again and again. One of our local police officers that frequents our pub told me once that he knew of a girl that has been saved three times by cops in our town.

Back in 2016 our state passed a law allowing local pharmacies to start selling Narcan over the counter.

New law puts Narcan on Missouri pharmacies? shelves | FOX2now.com

It's a shame for someone to let themselves get to the point of OD'ing on drugs....they knew the risk when they first starting experimenting with them. I personally am tired of throwing our tax dollars down a rat hole just to bring them back. If they want to kill themselves why should we have to pay to save them.

By "first responder," do you mean a professional provider of medical care? Or do you mean night-shift mall cop?

I'm skeptical. Are there ANY medical professionals here who would not want to administer naloxone to a patient who has overdosed? If so, speak up. I'd like to hear it first hand.
