A vending machine in Canada is dispensing a drug twice as strong as heroin

The vending machine began dispensing in January 2020. [Henry] visits it to pick up his medication four times a day … participants do not have to attend counseling, swear off all other substances or show up every day at a particular time.

Tyndall, a professor of epidemiology at the University of British Columbia, originally proposed the idea half-jokingly at a conference two years ago when discussing the overdose crisis …  Tyndall asks, why wait to reverse overdoses of poisoned street drugs? Why not just provide a safer supply of drugs of a known dose and purity and prevent them entirely? And how many barriers put up by the medical establishment to protect people are really harming them by driving them away from care?
