Should Schools Stock Narcan?
New Hampshire's largest city is one step closer to having the opiate antidote available in it's schools.
This week, the school board committee unanimously approved the measure to stock Narcan at each of Manchester’s 22 public school campuses.
Proponents cite the rising number of opiate overdoses in the area as a good reason to make the medication available at school.
But opponents say that the move might attract users of fentanyl or heroin to shoot up closer to schools, knowing they’d be closer to help if they overdose.
