In the sense that the cop was a user and tried to cover it up. Yes. That probably happened.

That does sound familiar. I hope they did a blood test on the cop.

Wasn't there a case where a cop got fentanyl on himself while arresting a guy, and claimed to OD because of it, and so they charged the guy with additional assaulting an officer? I hope I'm misremembering, but unfortunately this sounds like the sort of thing that could happen.
IIRC, it turned out the cop just had a panic attack.

Yeah in all the cases I’ve heard it’s been panic attacks.

I am intentionally suspicious of anything that comes from cops in any OD cases. Panic attacks? No, not these days. More like, we panicked when we realized you were actually going to investigate this.

I've run that call more than once. For a while, eating the things was big. The results were exactly as one would expect.
On a side note, despite the hysteria about opiates, it's been a long while since I've run a recreational use OD. Once in a great while, I have to bring someone back who's dealing with chronic or terminal pain and simply overdid it.

The hardiest urban legend of the US overdose crisis — the idea that deadly amounts of fentanyl are tainting the illicit marijuana market — is being spread by officials at the White House and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).

At a news conference last week prior to briefing Trump on the crisis, Kellyanne Conway, the White House’s opioid crisis czar, warned of the risks of illicit fentanyl turning up in other drugs, including marijuana.
If fentanyl and other strong narcotics are being put into the marijuana supply chain, dare I suggest that the US Government is the most likely suspect?

Unsurprisingly, Paul Nathanson also believes gay marriage will irrevocably fuck society, too.

His offered counter-argument for the "equality before the law" pro-gay-marriage apparently seems to be: "If we have equality between the sexes then eventually one sex or other will be made extinct, so gay marriage is bad." Or something.
Claim 17: Almost everyone believes in equality. How can we have that if gay citizens are denied the same rights as other citizens?

This is the most sophisticated argument of all, because no one can dispute either the value of equality or the fact that gay people are denied it in connection with marriage.

For equality to be more than a pious pipedream or a utopian ideal, at least some allowance must be made for the fact that nature itself knows nothing of equality. Equality is a laudable human ideal, to be sure, but no ideal can ever be completely or perfectly attained. Every moral and legal code, in fact, must be based partly on the universal need to live with ambiguity and paradox. Or, putting it another way, these codes must balance the conflicting needs of individuals and communities with those of society as a whole.

As we have said, all cultures have had to acknowledge biological inequality, or asymmetry between the sexes. Equality, therefore, must be created by culture. If culture defines equality as sameness, then the most obvious way to create it would be, in effect, to eliminate biological asymmetry. With new reproductive technologies, both existing and coming, this could actually be done. Not only can egg cells already be used to create additional egg cells in mice, but even sperm cells can be used to create egg cells. Used in humans, this technology would "blur the biological line between fathers and mothers."33 Parthenogenesis (fertilizing an egg without sperm) would eliminate men altogether, thus obviating the need for equality in the first place. The advent of ex utero techniques or even artificial wombs, on the other hand, could eliminate the need for female gestation. Stated in these terms, the prospect looks less appealing than many people would have imagined; either eliminate one sex to create equality or eliminate the distinctive feature of one sex to correct for the other's biological inequality. For decades, the Feminist International Network of Resistance to Reproductive and Genetic Engineering has been agitating against developing an artificial womb and the legalization of surrogacy (which would give men some control over reproduction) but to maintain artificial insemination (which gives women control over reproduction)....

Uh huh. And the easiest way to eliminate racism would be to eliminate all but one race, so we must oppose attempts to bring about racial equality lest they result in WHITE GENOCIDE!

If this dude isn't alt-right, I'm pretty sure he's at least alt-right-curious.

Yeah

Seriously though, eg
Stated in these terms, the prospect looks less appealing than many people would have imagined; either eliminate one sex to create equality or eliminate the distinctive feature of one sex to correct for the other's biological inequality.
It’s not like there’s not a long-standing strain of feminism that holds that women are exploited and oppressed because of their biology. It seems kind of weird to me not to think that. We’re literally smaller and weaker. Sure men have their weaknesses like they can’t access their feelings or whatever but seriously do people think it’s a coincidence that it’s women who have been oppressed and are also at a physical disadvantage?

So, it doesn’t seem that weird to me to talk about correcting biological inequality. Not to say I think it’s possible, but I do think, eg, that it would be awesome if people told girls in middle school not that their period was some beautiful thing passed down from mother to daughter but instead a now-unnecessary annoyance they could prevent with a pill or implant. Women campaign for no sales taxes on tampons instead of saying why should we have to live like this?

Nor me, but -- given that this jackass is a "gender relations professor" (and I'm willing to bet what he teaches boils down to "Women must do A, B and C, whereas men must do X, Y, and Z, and NEVER MUST THERE BE OVERLAP") -- it seems pretty obvious he'd oppose it.

I remember reading that in the 19th century, when medical science first discovered how to use IIRC ether as the first effective and relatively safe anesthesia (including for women giving birth), English churchmen were opposed to allowing women to kill the pain of childbirth because the Bible clearly says women are supposed to suffer. Only after Queen Victoria used it for one of her umpteen births did the churchmen STFU, since even they dared not criticize the queen.

I've no doubt this "gender relations professor" asshole would've been one of those opposed to painkillers during childbirth, too.
