Walgreens Heroin Antidote

Walgreens Stocks Shelves With Heroin Antidote

In an effort to help stem the tide of deaths related to the recent heroin epidemic across the country, Walgreens has announced its intent to sell the heroin antidote naloxone (also known by its brand name Narcan) over the counter. The antidote will be distributed in at least 35 states, as well as Washington D.C. by the end of this year. New Jersey is among the states in which the drug will be sold to combat the heroin epidemic statewide.


Staycation, All I Ever Wanted

When I was little there were few things I looked forward to more than the family vacation. Every summer we would go out of state, often going to Myrtle Beach, SC or Fort Myers, FL. For such a wide eyed kid as me it seemed like we would never run out of places to explore. Compared to places like Ripley’s Aquarium in Myrtle Beach, or the majestic beaches of FL, Monmouth County seemed dull by comparison. Even today I enjoy going out to see the world beyond NJ, but as I grew older I began to realize that these extravagant journeys were not always feasible- they simply cost far too much. Last summer it got even worse: air fare soared to prices that neither my family nor I myself were comfortable with. So we drove all the way to FL. Those two days stuck in a car with my grumpy family were not fun.
