According to RCMP, drug misuse can often lead to harmful side effects including overdoses.

There is an increased risk when different drugs are combined with each other, or with alcohol, and when the user is unaware of the content of the drugs they are consuming.

If you witness a drug overdose, call 9-1-1 immediately and provide whatever assistance possible.
