And even though the U.S. government does not allow its military to get involved in domestic law enforcement, it still gives about $240 million worth of military hardware to local police departments each year.

Moms and babies on the road to recovery: Season of Sharing 2017 |

It's a pretty amazing center that gets babies back with Moms. here's a story about one in Oregan:

Letty Owings Center puts moms and babies on the road to recovery: Season of Sharing 2017 | "Horne’s path to recovery started July 16, 2016, the day her youngest child, Michael Hayes, was born. For the 23 years leading up to his birth, Horne had used everything from marijuana to meth and heroin, never thinking she’d be anything but an addict. Two months before Michael was born, she stopped using meth and heroin in hopes they wouldn’t show up on tests. He tested positive for marijuana and the state Department of Human Services stepped in. Horne would be free to leave the hospital, they said, but her baby would have to stay."

Hospice Care: stealing pain killers from the dying!

Stealing pain killers from the dying...that is how ugly addiction is--it is aggressive and robs the very humanity from us.. so so grateful we have options in recovery. read this:
Journalist: Hospice Care Is Battlefront In Era Of Opioid Crisis | Wisconsin Public Radio
: ""Because this opioid epidemic is really affecting everyone, rich and poor, you can't make assumptions about who might be at risk," said Bailey. In her reporting, Bailey encountered stories of those who stole and abused opioid prescription painkillers from at-home hospice patients. "There's no real good national data on this problem. We don't know how common this is, but we do know that enrollment in hospice has been rising rapidly. About half of people who die in America are now in hospice care. And most of the time hospice staff are actually coming to the home," Bailey said on "Central Time.""
