Comment;

Misleading title to this article, as we’d expect from CNN, the article is about exposure to Buprenorphine which is much safer than standard opioids in an overdose but CAN still kill.  I don’t think this article puts enough emphasis on the fact that it is the caretakers/parents of these children that are putting the kids at risk.  It doesn’t compare the problem of these kids getting into other kinds of trouble while not being adequately supervised, nor does it compare the rates of such issues when parents/caretakers are on opioids other than buprenorphine.
