More Than A Third Of US Adults Prescribed Opioids In 2015

World Events and the Bible

WEB Notes: In our world doctors are legal drug dealers, I am not talking bad about doctors. If one hits the mark, then it is what it is. If you are offended please reference the tip in this article. How many of you have been prescribed medications you really did not need? How many people do you know that are on 3-5+ medications. Are there no other ways to treat these problems? Of course there are. It starts with your dinner plate.

The United States needs to curb excessive opioid prescribing and improve access to pain management techniques, suggests a new government study.  

Researchers found that more than one third of U.S. adults were prescribed the medications in 2015 and many also misused the drugs.

“A very large proportion and large number of adults use these medications in a given year,” said study author Dr. Wilson Compton, deputy director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse in Bethesda, Maryland. “I was still a bit surprised that 38 percent or about 92 million people used prescription opioids in 2015.”

    1. A good case for growing your own, my friend.
      There wouldn’t be a full court press in the news about how evil opioids are if the pharmaceutical companies didn’t have an ace up there sleeves. like putting the opioids in the weed.
      “Oh, man. I think my pot is laced with heroin.”

  1. They’re spreading Fentanyl around now, the new synthetic opiate high craze. We read about parents passed out at red lights with their kids in the back strapped into their car seats, only to be taken away from the parents and into foster care.

    This drug is going to replace Heroin to fool the public into thinking that they’re licking the opium trade, watch closely to the “three card monte” here, “priceless”.
