I kinda parallel Pine Ridge initiatives with Arnhem Land, ALPA development.

Something to be real proud of.
Economy, culture, spirituality all aspects working towards the same goal

Also working together with Balanda:

Everybody proud now of themselves and of each other

I thought “dope” meant cannabis … marijuana and hashish, a narcotic which was first used by Proto-Indo-Iranians and Indo-Europeans I think - if not the Chinese.
Apparently in Americas hemp also grew but not the narcotic kind.
But I see in Americas “dope” means heroin and fentanyl and OxyContin.

I was on Endone for a couple of days in a hospital, an opioid painkiller apparently containing oxycodone. So I know how it feels, but you do recognize from the very start how addictive it could/would become.

I am not unfamiliar with heroin addiction either since I knew quite a few addicts in Copenhagen.
At the time I hadn’t realized how numb I had become to it all.
Hearing about or watching people overdosing on street corners or an addict sticking knives into his knee to show what a ‘superman’ he had now become … the robberies etc. etc. had become a norm.
But when I left the city for a while to live on an island, coming back to Copenhagen with ‘fresh eyes’ was a reality-shock. It wasn’t nearly as bad, but to me it felt like being in the Kensington St reality and I really couldn’t witness/take it anymore when there was/is nothing one can do to help. The hopelessness and the helplessness of it all is just too painful to bear:

Only knew one person who had kicked the heroin habit and that was with the Methadone program.
Yep! (This video melted my heart):

But it is not just reservations, it is all over Americas and apparently in Straya too, although I have only heard of some people using Crystal Methamphetamine the ‘Ice’ here.
So, it is everybody’s problem.

I really wonder if bringing in the big guns – the toad – would help?
