The city Health Department is urging junkies not to feel embarrassed that they get high off fentanyl, and even offering a step-by-step tutorial on how to use one of the deadliest and most addictive drugs on the planet. In its “Let’s Talk Fentanyl” ad campaign the agency tells users they should feel empowered when they safely consume the drug—which became the leading cause of death among Americans ages 18 to 45 in 2020, according to one analysis. “Don’t be ashamed you are using, be empowered that you are using safely,” a woman identified as Florence from Manhattan says in one of the ads

With concrete tunnels and military officials using buggies to get around, it looks like a James Bond supervillain's lair—and it has its very own array of deadly weapons to fit the bill. The Iranian army gave some details, but not the exact location, of its secret underground base amid simmering tensions in the Gulf. State TV said 100 drones were being kept in the heart of the Zagros mountains, including Ababil-5, which it said were fitted with Qaem-9 missiles, an Iranian-made version of

David Kilmnick, who heads the nonprofit LGBT Network, wrote an article in Advocate magazine on Wednesday titled: “Bill Maher Has Gone Too Far With Anti-LGBTQ+ Comments.” Maher was blasted for saying that “we’re literally experimenting on children” by providing them with puberty blockers and other treatments aimed at facilitating gender transitions. He also said that transitioning was becoming “trendy.” Maher hit out at Chase Strangio, a lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union, who cheered efforts to ban a book
