Google Maps just got a brand new feature - it will now show users drug and alcohol addiction recovery resources on the map


Google Maps will display more the location of more than 83,000 recovery meetings, including Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. Moreover, Google Maps will also display the nearest location where people could find non-prescriptions drugs including Naloxone or Narcan that can treat overdoses. All you have to do is search for “Naloxone near me” or “Narcan near me” in the search bar of the app. The company has partnered with Recovery Resource Hub to vet the maps, and the help page won’t feature any ads.

But I'm suspecting this is the US only (at least for now). Let's hope other such agencies in other countries get to know about it and get involved too.

When suspect removed wig officers found 503g of cocaine glued to his head

Police at Barcelona airport have arrested a Colombian man suspected of trying to smuggle half a kilo of cocaine into Spain concealed under his wig.

Officers noted that the passenger, who had arrived on a flight from Bogotá, seemed extremely nervous. However, what most attracted their attention was the size, and in particular, the height of his wig.

The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.

-- John Erlichman, former White House staffer under Nixon
