Hi there, I'm very interested in the study regarding the Naloxone use. Can you please cite your sources for the study? Don't get me wrong, I agree with nearly everything you're saying but saying things like "studies have been conducted" or "they did this study," without citing any sources isn't very useful when combating against mainstream "health" authorities. Thanks for everything you're doing!
