A Los Angeles school district will supply Narcan at all of its K-12 schools in light of recent youth overdoses.

Narcan, or naloxone, an anti-overdose drug that can save the life of a user if administered quickly enough, will be supplied to every school in Los Angeles Unified School District by mid-October by the county's Department of Public Health, ABC 7 News reported.

Superintendent Alberto Carvalho said that the decision was made in order to prioritize the health of students.

"Research shows that the availability of naloxone along with overdose education is effective at decreasing overdoses and death — and will save lives," Carvalho said. "We will do everything in our power to ensure that not another student in our community is a victim to the growing opioid epidemic. Keeping students safe and healthy remains our highest priority."

ADDRESSING THE FENTANYL EPIDEMIC STARTS WITH BORDER SECURITY

In addition to supplying Narcan, the district will invest in an educational campaign to teach students and residents the dangers of fentanyl use. The campaign will teach students both how to spot fentanyl, as it is known for being hidden in other drugs, and the effects of its usage.

The immediate catalyst of the new anti-drug blitz was the overdose death of a 15-year-old student in an LAUSD bathroom last week, according to ABC 7 News.

"People are calling it a pandemic. I call it a plague, a crisis," Gladys Manriques, the aunt of the victim, told Eyewitness News earlier this week. "It's poison."

Oklahoma’s playoff dreams crushed by Kansas State upset: Best memes, reactions

Kansas State has made Oklahoma’s life miserable in the past. They did it again in Week 4 with a huge upset of the Sooners.

Anyone who has watched recent matchups between Kansas State and Oklahoma knew the 2022 edition of that series could be a juicy one. The Wildcats always seem to play the Sooners tough.

But with KSU coming off a loss to Tulane, it felt like this wouldn’t be the year for an upset. Until it was.

The Wildcats jumped on the Sooners early and then saw out a victory to knock Oklahoma out of the Top 10.

Oklahoma is probably also out of playoff contention with this one. The result had Skip Bayless melting down and the college football media racking the Sooners over the coals.

Brent Venables Oklahoma Sooners just played a mind-blowingly poor football game. So many missed tackles & throws. So many crucially dumb penalties, so shockingly little pass rush. Adrian Martinez & Kryptonite State just wanted it so much more. SO HARD TO WATCH. Doomer Sooner.

— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) September 25, 2022

In my LIFE, Ive never been more stunned by the outcome of a football game than what I just witnessed Kansas State do to Oklahoma in Norman. The Wildcats just OWN us.

— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) September 25, 2022

Adrian Martinez, who previously challenged Oklahoma with Nebraska, rushed for 148 yards and four rushing touchdowns. He also passed for a score.

Head coach Brent Venables has been tasked with shoring up Oklahoma’s defense but on Saturday they proved they have a long way to go. Kansas State scored two touchdowns almost immediately and kept outpacing the Sooners.

The Oklahoma offense stuttered early but eventually got going. It just wasn’t enough to match the output of the Wildcats.

The Sooners will try to bounce back next week on the road against TCU. Then they’ll go head-to-head with Texas in the Red River Showdown.

Venables will need time to get things on track. He is a first-time head coach after all. Still, no Sooners fan wanted to see the first loss come this way against a team that clearly has their own vulnerabilities. That’s college football for you though.
