SIMPLICITY - Denver, COOct. 26, 2017 6:05 p.m.When are the
masses going to wake up?? Illegal and legal drugs are primarily manufactured and
imported into the USA by the CIA/FBI. This is so obvious you simply need to open
your eyes and read a little. Afgahnistan had nothing to do with
"terrorists." It is simply the #1 source of poppy seed and heroin in the
world and the Elites wanted control, as they had lost control of it 10 years
prior to 2001. ======== Thank you for your nutty
conspiracy theory.Obama is a secret muslim, born in Kenyan.Hillary Clinton ran a child sex ring out of a D.C. pizza parlor, Reptilians are breeding with humans, Sandy Hook was staged False Flag
Government operation to seize your guns, RFID chips, Chem Trails,
Fluoride and Vaccines used by Government for mind control, the moon

nearly every other substance. I'm a doctor and i see it on the front
lines. Whether it be cigarettes, alcohol, caffeine, fatty foods, meth, heroin,
norco, percocet, and oxycontin. But lets be real, our own handlers/Elites make
it and supply it and profit from it and then blame the whole thing on societal
@ IAlaw - Council BluffsWe suffer from “profoundly greedy
corporate interests such as Big Pharma.” - On this we agree 100%.But the rampant over-prescription of drugs of all kinds is not a result
of over-regulation. Quite the opposite.I’m with Hutterite: If
I never again see an “ask your doctor” ad, I’ll be thrilled.
@RiflemanWhy is it that in states with legal medical marijuana that opiod
deaths are significantly lower than demographically similar states where weed is
prohibited? It has nothing to do with marijuana. It's a straw man argument
your bringing up here.
@ Rifleman"...and then we wonder why our youth make the jump
from Marijuana to whatever else they can get their hands on."People get hooked on opioids because their dentist prescribes Vicodin after a
root canal or their doctor prescribes a hydrocodone derivative to lessen back
pain. You don't understand how vicious these addictions are. If you did,
you wouldn't be talking about "morality".
Utah Girl Chronicles - Eagle Mountain, UTYou can ignore the truth if
you chose to but Marijuana is known as a gateway drug. We want to legalize it
in our state, it is already legal in other states, and then we wonder why our
youth make the jump from Marijuana to whatever else they can get their hands
on.Our growing drug epidemic and our moral decline go hand in hand.
@ Rileman"There is a direct correlation between our decline in
morality and young people who get addicted to drugs. If dad is in prison and
mommy's new boyfriend is on drugs it is hard to understand how the children
who grow up in that environment can turn out any better."Perhaps
but we are talking about the opioid problem, not morality. You can hoist
yourself up on your morality pedestal but that doesn't lessen the fact
there are clergy people, police officers, lawyers, nurses, doctors and teachers
who have an opioid problem.
Noodlekaboodle - Poplar Grove, UTYes, many people get addicted to
drugs doctors but the vast majority of drug addicts got their start as kids
running around the streets without guidance from parents.Marijuana
has been proven to be a gateway drug, it is now legal in many states, and now
the mentally challenged blame Trump for not fixing the problem.Our
decline in morality has consequences.
@Rifleman - Salt Lake City, UTOct. 26, 2017 8:48 a.m.There is
a direct correlation between our decline in morality and young people who get
addicted to drugs. If dad is in prison and mommy's new boyfriend is on
drugs it is hard to understand how the children who grow up in that environment
can turn out any better.===== You really have know idea
what we are talking about, do you?Opioids addicts are not street beggars,
homeless people, Saturday nights parties, or crackheads.Opioids
kills over 50,000 people a year.They are in fact -- Grandmas
and Grandpas, Mommies and Daddies, Bishops, Priests, and Rabbis,
Teachers, Police, Restaurant waiter, Construction worker and Clerk,
Republicans, Democrats, Mormons, Methodists, Catholics, and
Atheists, There is not a single group of Americans not touched or
effected by this epidemic.Sad thing is -- The Pharmaceutical
Industry pushing sales helped perpetuated this, the Pharmaceutical
Industry won't pay to help fix it, but they sure will be more than
happy to sell you the treatment for it...$It's silly to think
Diet Coke, green teas, or coffee are the sin or problem, when you have
this going on.
@RiflemanWhile there is no doubt that some of the people getting addicted
to opiates are kids, many of them are adults, many of them start getting their
drugs from a doctor. This is not just high school kids scoring drugs on a street
In my experience as something of an outsider, American health care is kind of a
wild west affair. It's pushed on us like new cars, worse even.
It's all about the dollar, not ones' health at all. I noticed in
Florida, for example, that strip malls are filled with so called
'pain' clinics. Is pain such an epidemic there, or is it about pushing
pills? If I never see an ad ending in 'ask your doctor if X is right for
you!' again, that would be fantastic. My doctor should know what I need,
not the other way round. Then, once you do take meds, some law outfit is out
there trying to make a buck off a class action suit from it. The opioid
and fentanyl crises are, as someone pointed out, moral crises. Top down,
corrupt, greedy leadership morality crises.

I declare the hurricanes an emergency [50 dead] = $250 billionI declare
the California fires an emergency [50 dead] = $200 billionI declare
opioids an emergency [50,000 dead] = $ ZEROThe only thing I can see
is that businesses stand to gain with hurricanes and fires, peoples lives?
Trump doesn't give a rip.It's like Trump see
"America" as nothing more than a business, not people, citizens.
Opioids kills the same amount of Americans each year that were killed in the
entire Vietnam War. Of course Trump isn't going to understand
the gravity of this situation. He doesn't have an opioid problem.
@ EDM :Respectfully, our healthcare system is not "a modern-day
Wild West." It is actually massively regulated and burdened in no small
degree by government intervention. Unfortunately, we're witnessing what
happens when an enormous and byzantine regulatory system is captured by powerful
and profoundly greedy corporate interests such as Big Pharma.
I agree 100%. States need money to deal with this epidemic.But where
is the “war on drugs” on this one? Why is our healthcare system a
modern-day Wild West?Will we make Big Pharma pay?
