Drug users playing involuntary Russian Roulette with opioids on Montreal streets – CTV News
March 6, 2021
With Montreal public health alerting drug users about a toxic rainbow of pills and powders on the city’s streets, addicts are often playing Russian Roulette to get their fixes.
But unlike the contest of will with a bullet, users are involuntary participants, says Jean-Francois Mary, executive director of safe injection site Cactus Montreal.
Mary objected to the notion in a recent La Presse article that compared drug users to those who willingly put a gun to their heads and pull the trigger.
