Because someone ODs on this stuff every 19 minutes in America. I need to find those maps of USA they showed on 60 Minutes last week! It was shocking. Difference from 1999 I think it was compared to 2016. I'll do a search.

Found it. Go to 4:31 and see how bad ODs have gotten.

Holy hell! In my area there are no reddish areas at all. We are still in the meth phase I guess. A lot of pot smoked and extacy taken around here, but I do see the OD's increasing. I think I need to buy stock in the company that makes Narcan.
People suck.

They can stop most of the opioid problem by investigating the real problem and that is the prescribing physicians. When the authorities decide to get serious they will look at pain clinics, free standing doc in a boxes, hospital emergency rooms, certain MDís , PAís, NPís, DOís and DPMís. Every state has a data bank that records each prescriber, who and what medication. They can figure out which prescriberís are overwriting and which patientís are receiving what pain medication. They can make arrests and pull licenses if they would like to, but they donít speak about this problem very much at all probably because more than a few prescriberís would be facing jail time.
This angle of investigation would be a step in the right direction.
 Quoting: Clydeq


Although a few bad doctors will be caught with this system, some good ones who treat a lot of patients who otherwise live lives of constant pain without opioids will also be prosecuted for relieving actual pain.
Mostly, the system will be used as a political weapon by the State against physicians who donate to political opposition.

This entire so called health system is the opposite of health. Doctors are not trained to actually heal problems they just throw drugs at every single symptom someone has.

That's one profession they will bend over backwards to keep you a reoccurring customer.

I just find it fascinating that suddenly POS drug addicts are now causing everyone to freak out in this country. Are any of you old enough to remember when crack first hit the market? What about the heroin epidemic in the late 70's and early 80's? What is happening now that is so different?

What does declaring a public health emergency do? Does it open up the checkbook of the government?
 Quoting: Tarnished Halo


maybe because it's costing taxpayers millions? I know there are programs out there and charities wanting our $$$$$$.

FACT, it is the drug fentanyl (imported from China)that is killing people. It is so potent that a tiny microdot can and does cause death. Address this problem. Leave the injured and diseased alone.
--.-.-.-.-.-.-

This assault on pain medicine is a witch hunt. Are the President and those advocating for the removal of all pain medications giving an alternative? Magic wand, magic dust, magic procedure to alleviate the pain that the diseased and injured endure all day every day?.

Most people on these pain meds have had all of the surgical procedures and therapy in an attempt to correct their damage from injury or disease.

They keep yelling it is Rural White people that are using the most medicine. NEWS FLASH. It is the white race who have little to no time off, no vacations, our funds pinched as tight as a crabís ass.

We rush off to work to ensure that we arenít fired, usually after working god knows how much overtime. ** Side note.. Overtime that is taxed at such a high rate that often you only get to keep pennies on the dollar.

Our fellow mankind the Hispanic, the blacks the muslims all in great numbers sit home stirring shit all day as they live in FREE housing, free healthcare, free phones, free internet, free food and all manner of free charitable contributions for school clothing and any and all needs.
When have you ever seen a White Charitable event? I am old, and have not seen any aid or assistance to white people in many decades.

For decades millions of people took prescription opioid pain relievers without becoming addicted. No problem.

Then we have a zillion foreign born non-white primary care, generalist doctors who stopped prescribing pain medication because of "addiction."

You still have people in pain but now they can't get pain meds.

They try to buy it off of the street, but pills have become so expensive that no one can afford to buy them on the black market for long.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75744412


Are you kidding me? It's the opposite, the foreign born doctors are the ones over prescribing... they don't give two fucks and will write out anything.

I have an old school white doctor, and maybe 5 years ago or so I herniated a disk in my back... I never even asked for anything for the pain even though I could hardly stand but twice during the exam he told me he wouldn't prescribe opiates almost expecting me to walk out.

My buddy blew his back out less severely than I did and his Indian doctor loaded him up with Percocets the second he asked, and I've seen the same with other people I know as well.
 Quoting: R. Wordsworth


They have all of these foreign doctors here for a reason and it isn't because there is any sort of shortage of white males who would attend medical school if they could get in.


Maybe they are part of the drug poisoning of the population.


Maybe they are here to suppress the actual disease statistics and to treat illegals and foreigners for their Third World illnesses without leaking the information about the nature and frequency of their diseases.

Re: Why is The Opioid Crisis Now a National Emergency?
i used to be one of them.. and hope i am never one of them again. welbutrin, coriseden, and immodium helped me kick the habit, taken on a regular schedule, not enough to get high but to relieve the withdrawl and i was really tired for a couple weeks, but eventually everything leveled out for me, im stronger and now have more energy than i did when i was taking pills, luckly heroin was a line i wouldnt cross. coriseden really helped me kick it, without it i dont think i could have stopped

but for some reason i came out of my haze and decided i didnt want to be with my husband anymore, i didnt like him and used drugs to cope and when i stopped doing drugs, i said i couldnt be with him anymore, that confused me alot

Trump is using this in 2 ways.

1. To truly address the issue of drug abuse in our country.

2. Trump is sending a message to the UN/NWO/DeepState/Juice that he is coming for them and that they are no longer going to profit from addicts in the USA.

FUCKING MAGA 3D

So is actually Trump going to go after Big Pharma as they're the reason for all this or is he going to choose the ineffective route and just go after doctors and pharmacies?
