The vets are bringing five dogs to the Hill to draw attention to what they see as glaring omissions in the legalized regimes for medical and recreational marijuana.

Carfentanil is said to be 100 times more potent than morphine and, like fentanyl, it cannot be detected by sight, smell or taste.

WRIDS is urging drug users to take every precaution, including carrying naloxone and never using alone.

Information on where residents can get a free naloxone kit can be found online.
