Drugs Kill More People than Guns

August 01, 2016

For the first time in recorded history, more people now die of drug overdose than gun violence.

The dramatic rise of overdose death associated with tainted heroin, especially heroin laced with carfentanil, led to the rise. But it wasn't only heroin that was dramatically rising last year; there were more deaths attributed to cocaine, opioids (prescription pain killers), and even cannabinoids.

The Florida Medical Examiner's Report for 2016 shows the trends that led to this dramatic rise in overdose deaths, in Florida.
