I'm curious now, if a person tells authorities they believe their loved one is going to OD on opioids does the .gov do anything? Do they step in and take their drugs to save their life or do they need a new law to save lives in this fashion? My thought is, if they can then this same idea could have been used for weapons?? and before 1302 passed!


Why not an opioids red flag law? because ... firearms! and therefore my "marketing scheme" comment.

No problem. I'm just pointing out that there will be people that will abuse the law. But like any other call for police service it has to have things done properly to have it executed. I don't support it. In fact I have pointed out areas of data that need to be collected, in order to defeat the law.

Sacrificing liberty for safety is never a good idea. Especially because the safety never actually shows up. Any law that can be abused, will be abused; which is why laws like this should have never been passed in the first place. Thinking a government or its officials wont abuse every inch of power they get is like expecting an alcoholic not to raid your liquor cabinet when he house sits.
