    NYT: The rising death rates for young white adults, ages 25 to 34, make them the first generation since the Vietnam War years to experience higher mortality rates in early adulthood than the previous generation.

    You can't overdose on Marijuana, which is why it's the drug of choice for safe recreational use.

    It doesn't really say how much drug overdoses compare to other methods of death.
    What are the number of overdoses compared with suicides, and homicides?

    Idk, but apparently 33,000 die each year in the US from gun violence, which includes homicides, suicides, and accidental shootings. Republicans are pro gun.

    Republicans are also responsible for the war on drugs, which prohibits marijuana but allows doctors to push hardcore narcotics onto regular folks.

    Bottom line, the republican policies are killing young white people, along with everyone else.icon_sad.gif

    No worse than your logic of the APA getting funds from the CDC is liberal campaign money.
