    Andi looking hot as usual

  2. Isolation is the LAST thing you wanna do with someone dealing with substance/alcohol abuse problems

  3. The opioid epidemic is horrible!!! So so sad 💗 to the families

  4. Alcoholism.

  5. Donald tRump exhibits all the signs of being an Adderral junkie with all his mood swings and all. He obviously needs help and is one sick puppy!

    • @Edwin Bertelmann watch this space … donnie can no longer hide behind the presidential immunity scam . Funny thing is , he would have got away with it , like so many others have , but his ego made him run for office and expose his own corruption … He did what he did with all his businesses , NOTHING . lazy fat grifter .

      @José Hunter’s EW&F Remixes 😂😂😂you should know CORNHOLE..😂😂

    • 🐍🏝Cancun Cruz 👎

  6. Another reason why cannabis should become legal.

  7. Capitalism kills.

    • @jstreets1983 exactly. I live my way. Your decision if you want to keep giving all your money to the rich. I respect that decision. I just feel people who give it all away shouldn’t complain about it. I mean what’s the option? The rich just give everyone everything for free.

    • @Craig Norris I feel you’re wrong and I’m just not interested in a back and forth to have us both think the exact same thing we did before we spoke to each other.

      Why can’t we just disagree and go our own ways. This is YT, you know how this ends.

    • @jstreets1983 👍 I understand and respect where your coming from. I wish you the best.

    • 🤡Cancun Cruz👎🐔

    • @Craig Norris Thank you for understanding.

  8. Add those overdoses to covid death totals and Trumps total.

    • Bidens doing a great job . 100,000+ deaths in a month compared to 400,000 in about 11 months under trump . Biden has not actually done anything

      He isn’t a wizard. He isn’t able to magically make the virus disappear. What he has done very differently than Trump is that he has not lied and downplayed the severely of the situation. He has also not made fun of people who wear PPE, or called doctors names…

      @N W
      Biden isn’t trying to get us to “Liberate” ourselves out into a pandemic. He isn’t throwing death rallies.

    • @Gracie Freebush we need to have open minds. I don’t know your situation, but everyone was affected differently by the pandemic. I get where Trump was coming from. Ironically it was a lose lose for Trump. If he would have shut everything down and mandated masks he would have still been criticized that’s what people do to each other in politics these days. It doesn’t matter what you believe or do, only if you have a D or an R in front of your name. Maybe a lot of people were ok sitting at home and it didn’t really cost them anything. I personally lost my business due to shutdowns. I was ok for a few months but then bills piled up and I closed up. Now I sit on debt I can’t pay back because I have no income and I can’t start another business because I have the debt. I’m not going to sit here and finger point. Yeah i could blame the Dems and all their lockdowns, but my view is it was a natural disaster and we had to do it to try and save lives. For me it had horrible timing. I will figure something out, but I can see how people in my shoes would be desperate to open things back up. It’s just unfortunate most people can only relate to themselves and have no compassion for those that lost their livelihoods that they worked hard for.

  9. Economic troubles, sense of isolation, stress from the impact of the pandemic….not a good set of circumstances for those going through addiction.
    Be safe out there. 🙏

      Honestly it was not being able to go to group and the dr. For meds the constancy was gone.
      Then the inevitable relapses came

    Because the break in therapy was catastrophic to addicts and alcoholics, they needed reliability and it was gone.

  11. the only way out of the drug issue is education and 12 step programs and rehab of every type.

  12. Removed, the true word from America!! Which is, Jesus!! He is our salvation, protector, keeper, strength, way maker, joy, peace, love etc… When you think you don’t need him!! Is when Satan!! Takes over the mind, and destroys!! Pray to Yahweh people!!

  13. People should take out Million dollar life ins policies on the juinkies they know, its a good investment

    If you know people struggling take a min to check in with them every day!

  15. Only when you’ve sat with real anaIysts with years of trad!ng experience to their name and carefully briefed on how these market structure work, you’d just be a blind man trying to make his way in a city full of numerous equally blind people, from experience a dip in crypt0 mar:ket value is a very interesting yet advantageous part of how the mar:ket work, Btc and Eth(slight dip) can be attributed to the huge coin sales from investor of late. I’ve got a lot of crypt0 in my possession, but a dip has never been my problem, dips as this just merely provides avenue to acquire more trad!ng equity, trad!ng definitely ticks the dot. Trad!ng though is serious business that should only be done under the right stra:tegy and gu!de, I’ve readily employed using s!gnals from trad anaIyst Garric Norman of Bitmine life Trading management. while carrying out personal sessions with amazing returns, this way I accumuIate crypt0 trad!ng and buy from dips like this. You can easily get t0 Garric on ͲҽӀҽցɾąʍ (garric_norman_fxt) ω𝐇𝓐𝓽ѕ𝓐ρ𝐩 + – 1{4 09) _ 234_ 68 15 __ for Crypt0 related issues…………….

  16. brilliantly said, ty both. opioids are the scourge of this century.

    While politicians was playing red team, blue team. People lives was getting destroyed as a result. Nice job people 👍

    This is why Joe needs to fulfill his campaign promises and get students back into school and open up business so we can return to our supercharged economy that we had before the COVID-19 virus ravage the world.

  19. Not being able to go to group meetings is what makes many relapse, and sadly OD.😢

  20. Same in BC Canada, and higher rates of drinking and substance use during this pandemic
