      • Coroner Kent Harshbarger estimates that 60 percent to 70 percent of the bodies he sees are those of overdose victims and that by the end of the year, he'll have processed 2,000.

        Because his staff covers one-fifth of Ohio, he estimates that the state will see 10,000 overdoses by the end of 2017 - more than were recorded in the entire United States in 1990.

        "This is no different than some kind of mass-casualty event in any other form. It's just a medical event," Harshbarger said in a hallway just steps from several autopsy rooms that doctors were walking in and out of. "It needs to be recognized that way to bring some federal assets to help us."

      • Think about those who haven't overdosed... you'll be paying for their healthcare for the rest of their lives.

        It isn't just Ohio... it's nationwide.

        These losers would cost a great deal more in crime, court costs and incarceration if they had lived. If you want to clear the streets of human garbage then sell a few batches of crack/meth/whatever laced with something toxic.
