Prescription Painkillers Kill More Americans Than Heroin & Cocaine Combined

'According to a new report from Brandeis University, prescription painkillers -- opioid or narcotic pain relievers like Vicodin (hydrocodone), OxyContin (oxycodone), Opana (oxymorphone), and methadone -- are now responsible for more fatal overdoses in the U.S. than heroin and cocaine combined. Should prescription drug addicts manage to get into detox before it’s too late, they also realize that detoxification is hard.

"An epidemic of prescription drug abuse is devastating American families and draining state and federal time, money and manpower," Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.), chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, said in a media statement about the study. "Law enforcement and health officials are doing heroic work and, thankfully, this report provides a road map to help them further."'

I have a chronic illness that causes intractable pain.  I am often hospitalized, where I am given I.V. dilaudid and Oxycontin tablets.  It's actually a very nice experience, being injected with significant doses of medical grade opiate (my average dose is 2mg dilaudid every four hours..  Some of the younger nurses will push the plunger very fast while injecting the dilaudid into my I.V. line, causing a sudden and dramatic high.  A feeling of well being, euphoria and warmth come over me instantly and it lasts a long time.  I can see how some people become addicts.  However it is very tricky to properly manage my pain once I leave the hospital.  They usually release me with a month's worth of narcotic pain medication.  It doesn't take much to catch a habit on that stuff.  I am always looking for another way to manage my pain, fearing I could wind up an addict or dead. 

The production of opiate pain killers like Oxycontin is immensely profitable.  The drug companies knew very well what they were doing when they created and promoted this stuff in places like Virginia where it is an epidemic in mining communities due to the high rate of serious injuries.  Crazy stuff.  The pharmaceutical industry, the prison industrial complex and the war on drugs are all co dependent, feeding off one another's efforts and creating a trap that enslaves good people and makes evil people filthy rich.

^^^Great post!!! Yeah, opioid pills have been getting more and more popular in the past 10 years. It is so easy to take a pill, especially when it is legal with a prescription. A lot of people are getting into crushing pills and snorting them or shooting it up like heroin. In some instances, you can get hooked within 3 days of use.

The doctors are being pressured to push these opioids on a massive scale. More pills like these are being prescribed to patients more than ever. I believe it is definitely a NWO move to keep the population docile and drugged up.

J-35, I would like to know what the illness is. You can PM it to me if you'd like. Perhaps I can help?
