Maybe lifelong learning can be best conceptualized as a way of engaging with people and with ideas and that naturally mediates a particular epistemic attitude; that attitude being a loving, non-attachment toward one’s appraisal of knowledge and the process of learning. In other words, learning is a good in itself, uncompromised by the irrational desire to see “oneself” in a certain way.

“Overall, opiod prescribing rates have been shown to decrease in some states after implementation of PDMPs, but no significant changes have been found in others. Studies on the effects of PDMPs on opiod overdoses have similarly been mixed with some studies finding no chance in overdose following PDMP implementation, and others finding an increase in overdose. In addition, there has been considerable concern among researchers that the rise in heroin use and overdose starting in 2010 may have been an unintended consequence of policies like the PDMP that reduced the supply of prescription opioids for non-medical use.
