It’s so simple to open an account with Tangerine Bank. It’s the bank that I personally use, they don’t charge me any monthly fee’s, I can use any Bank of Nova Scotia ATM machine, and there everywhere, and they gave me $50 to open my account.
Here’s all that I had to do.
First my friend gave me his Orange Key Number, and since your my friend now, Please use mine. My Orange Key Number is –50187588S1 –Write this down as you will need it in a minute.
Next I went to the Tangerine website, filled out all of the appropriate information, entered my friends Orange Key Number and presto I had opened an account.
Next I took my Identification into Tangerine Bank for Verification. Don’t worry if aren’t any Tangerine Banks available where you live, there’s also an option to go to Canada Post for Verification of your Identification. (If your just switching Banks, I don’t think they require this step).
Next I just deposited $100 into my Tangerine Account within 90 days and Tangerine deposited $50 more. It’s that simple, It’s that easy. You can spend it right away. Then you’ll have your own Orange Key number to share with your friends.
So what do I get out of sharing this little tid-bit of information with you? Well here’s the best part, every time someone uses your Orange Key Number to open an account, Tangerine also deposits $50 into your account. I’ve helped many friends like this, and I’ve received $50 every time.Here’s the link to the Tangerine website.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Check it out for yourself, and drop back to my site to leave me a comment on how great of a deal this is.
Find Out How Ontario Helped Create the Opioid Crisis, Costing Lives while Using Taxpayer’s Money To Do It!
What Is The Culpability Of Our Nation?
We have become a nation of pill poppers. Pain tablets are the prime culprits — more specifically, opioids. A broad category of drugs derived from natural or synthetic forms of opium or morphine. Many of the medications in the group, which includes everything from Percocet to OxyContin to Fentanyl. Their chemical composition is such that the Canadain’s just a few carbon molecules from being a nation of heroin addicts.
Two decades ago opioid sales were a small fraction of today’s figures, as such drugs were reserved for the worst cancer pain. Why? Because drugs whose chemical composition resemble heroin’s are nearly as addictive as heroin itself, and doctors generally wouldn’t use such powerful medications on anybody but terminal cancer patients. But that changed years ago, and ever since, addiction to painkillers has become a staple of news headlines. More often, there are the celebrities, such as Rush Limbaugh, who admitted on his radio show years ago that he was addicted to painkillers, or actor Heath Ledger, who was found dead with oxycodone in his system, or rapper Eminem, who entered rehab to address his reliance on Vicodin and other pills.
No one is more successful — or controversial — than Purdue Pharma, maker of the No. 1 drug in the class: OxyContin, which generated $3.1 billion in revenue in 2010. Purdue and its marketing prowess are the biggest reasons such drugs are now widely prescribed for all sorts of pain, “Purdue played a very large role in making physicians feel comfortable about opioids.” And as we’ll see, Purdue’s past and present go a long way toward explaining how so many Canadians came to be in the grip of potent painkillers.
When it was introduced into the U.S. and Canada in the late ’90s, OxyContin was touted as nearly addiction-proof — only to leave a trail of dependence and destruction. Its marketing was misleading enough that Purdue pleaded guilty in 2007 to a federal criminal count of mis-branding the drug “with intent to defraud and mislead the public,” paid $635 million in penalties to the U.S. alone, and today remains on the corporate equivalent of probation.
Fentanyl use and distribution has exploded in Canada over the last couple of years, and it’s going to get worse before it gets better, and fentanyl seems to be just the tip of the iceberg.
Fentanyl’s analogues, or variations, have increased in number and potency over the last year, along with Carfentanil, and non-fentanyl opioids like W-18, and U-47700 that have emerged as of late.
Increasing access to naloxone, safe injection sites, and increased opioid reporting and early-warning systems will help, but won’t stop the market for the drug from increasing.
The practice of drug producers and traffickers cutting their product with supplemental substances is not new. But the use of fentanyl and other opioids to do so is not only uncommonly deadly, it can also clearly trace its roots to the “the national crisis of prescription painkiller abuse, and associated medical prescribing practices.”
“Anchored between domestic criminal entities and those based in China, the Internet – via the surface web and the dark web – continues to serve as the main gateway for a thriving, open illicit opioid marketplace in Canada.”
The intent of our words makes all the difference of understanding our own stigma’s.
The stigma of addiction and the lack of organized advocacy for affected people have been the biggest barriers to creating change for so very many here in Canada and around the world.
But what about the language used by those professionals supposedly in the know? The accidental “overdose” of fentanyl laced drugs requires us revisit the language surrounding this exploding epidemic and health crisis.
Aren’t we using the wrong language here to describe the toxic lacing of illicit drugs, to a level of potency that makes the use of them so dangerous, so poisonous, that unbeknownst to them, what was a typical dose for an addict, now becomes deadly?
“When a patient has over-consumed alcohol, we call it alcohol poisoning, we don’t write about it as an alcohol overdose,” – Dr. Edward Xie
While people tend to imagine that overdoses primarily occur when drug users are alone, in fact, at least half of them happen in the presence of others. In England, for example, 80% of users who overdosed did so while with others and 54% had also witnessed others who had OD’d. A study in New York similarly found that 57% of over 1,000 crack and heroin users had personally witnessed at least one overdose. A Rhode Island study revealed that 35% of opioid users had overdosed at least once themselves and two-thirds had seen someone else do so.
McKenna’s Story – Untold On The Big Screen As Of Yet
Jim Carrey has not signed on to star in a biopic about late ethnobotanist, philosopher and psychedelic drugs advocate Terence McKenna, despite a bogus report containing fake quotes wrongly attributed to the actor. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this story.
Gossip Cop went on to say that, McKenna was an unusual figure in the world of philosophy who spoke and wrote about a variety of subjects, most notably the positive effects of experimenting with psychedelic mushrooms. A 2016 documentary about Terrance McKenna, titled True Hallucinations, chronicled his travels into the amazon while under the influence of psychedelic substances, the chaos at La Chorrera, the imagination, time, the Logos, belief, hope, madness, and doubt. Created by Peter Bergmann, this project is an expansion of ideas first presented in “The Transcendental Object At The End Of Time”.
The website, McKennite.com, recently published an article claiming, Carrey, has signed on to star in a film about the philosopher’s life, and even alleges the actor tookpsychedelics to get into character. The outlet erroneously quotes Carrey as saying, “I’ve seen things which no human being has ever seen before, and no other human being will ever see again. I retreated to nature and took five grams of dried mushrooms in order to prepare for this role.” Carrey never said any of this, but the site went on to add more made-up quotations from the actor supposedly touting the benefits of hallucinogens.
“If anyone could have portrayed the life of a man (Terrance McKenna) that has had such a dramatic, positive spin on psychedelics, it would have been Carrey to do it, and do it well.” – Jeff Dibble
This bogus report was later picked up and spread by the websites Brain Stain and True Activist, which further claimed the actor is “undergoing a massive transformation” for the role by “allowing himself to ‘trip’ on psychedelic plants.”However, none of this is remotely true. It’s possible this story was concocted simply because Carrey bears a considerable resemblance to McKenna, after recently growing a beard, but he isn’t playing the philosopher on screen.
A rep for the actor exclusively tells Gossip Cop, “Jim Carrey has not signed on to do a movie about Terence McKenna and any quotes attributed to him about experimenting with psychedelics are absolutely false.”
McKennite.com is now “pinging” Steve Buscemi for the role stating: “After Jim Carrey distanced himself from the role, it is up to Steve Buscemi to revive the spirit of the late psychedelic explorer on the big screen in an upcoming biopic.” However no reports have been substantiated at this time.
If we as a community believe in anything, we believe in feeling good in the moment. The felt presence of immediate experience. This is what has been stolen from you, by capitalism, by religion, by linear thinking, by strategizing. We’re always about to be happy, or we’re always about to be free. And while we’re about to be free and about to be happy, life passes us by. This is because western ideologies are ideologies of delayed gratification. It comes after death, after retirement, after coitus, it’s always after something that it comes. Well, I’ve got news for you, this kind of thing is chasing your own tail. The felt presence of immediate experience is the only world you will ever know. Everything beyond that is conjecture and supposition. – Terrance McKenna
Rest in Peace. “I wish that If only I could have met you, talked, learned more, and laughed.”– Jeff Dibble
Lord of the Flies, the classic William Golding novel about a group of boys marooned on an island and forced to form their own society, is being made into a film . But this time, instead of an all-boys cast, the students stranded on the island will all be female.
There have been two Lord of the Flies film versions already produced: the original 1963 film by Peter Brook, and the 1990 Harry Hook version. The ’90’s version, starring a young Balthazar Getty, is the version that “I remember enjoying so very much as a young man.”
Two male directors are driving this project, Scott McGehee and David Siegel, most known for their work on, What Maisie Knew and The Deep End.
“We want to do a very faithful but contemporized adaptation of the book, but our idea was to do it with all girls rather than boys,” Siegel said to Deadline. “It is a timeless story that is especially relevant today, with the interpersonal conflicts and bullying, and the idea of children forming a society and replicating the behaviour they saw in grownups before they were marooned.”
“Myself, I don’t know how this story could possibly be portrayed by Girls? Boy’s and Girl’s just don’t interpret or react to a given scenario in the same way. That’s what makes us so uniquely special.”
McGehee went on to say: “it’ll provide an interesting take on boys and girls and aggression, or at least society’s concepts of gender,” and the pair is exited to start this gender bending rendition.
“[The story] is aggressively suspenseful, and taking the opportunity to tell it in a way it hasn’t been told before, with girls rather than boys, is that it shifts things in a way that might help people see the story anew,” he said. “It breaks away from some of the conventions, the ways we think of boys and aggression. It is a great adventure story, real entertainment, but it has a lot of meaning embedded in it as well. We’ve gotten to think about this a while as the rights were worked out, and we’re super eager to put pen to paper.”
So Why Is Fentanyl Surpassing Heroin Related Overdoses?
It’s easier and cheaper to produce than heroin, which is derived from poppy plants. With fentanyl, there are no crops, just chemicals.
“You can make it as strong as you want, and in bulk and fast,”said Tim Reagan, a Cincinnati-based DEA agent. And because it’s so potent, a little bit goes a long way, making it extremely profitable.
Why Do Addicts Use Fentanyl When They Are So Likely To Overdose?
First, medical experts note that addiction is a Mental Health Issue that can impair self-control and judgment. Addicts are not making rational decisions.
Second, some addicts don’t realize fentanyl has been mixed into the drugs they’re buying. Take this user, who posted a message in a fentanyl chat room on Reddit asking about what might be in his opioid pills.
“With real oxy, I usually have at least a day after my last dose before the withdrawls (sic) kick in, but now it’s literally like 3-4 hours after my last dose,” this person wrote. “Is this normal for fent or are my pills laced with something else?”
Finally, addicts want the most intense high, and some seek out fentanyl-laced drugs even if they realize it could kill them. “If a user dies … (others) are going to try to find that dealer, because they’re looking for the best stuff,” Reagan said.
“So because oxycodone is so gosh darn expensive I’ve decided to start using fentanyl but have no idea how to use it,” this person wrote. “How much am I supposed to use without killing myself?” ” thanks for your help.”
