President Trump’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis announced, “America is enduring a death toll equal to September 11th every three weeks.” But last month, Trump’s nominee for drug czar, Republican Congressman Tom Marino, had to withdraw from consideration, after a Washington Post/60 Minutes investigation revealed he led an drug industry-backed effort to pass a law that made it nearly impossible for the the DEA to keep opioids off the black market, The Ensuring Patient Access and Effective Drug Enforcement Act passed in 2016.
The drug industry lobbied heavily to win passage of the bill, contributing $1.5 million to its 23 congressional co-sponsors. Marino alone accepted nearly $100,000 in campaign cash from the industry (!)
This segment of Democracy Now! also looks into how the company that makes OxyContin and reaps the billions of dollars in profits it generates is owned by the Sackler family. An important report by Christopher Glazek reveals that the company that invented OxyContin downplayed the addictiveness of the drug and exploited doctors’ confusion over the drug’s strength is owned by a reclusive family that doesn’t put its name on anything that isn’t the wing of an international art museum or an Ivy League School.
My friend takes this after fracturing one of her vertebra. She said the dr told her the drug has a street value
Ogycontin acts in special by hte impact of H3C, which is a poison for the body.
Adrenalin also acts by H3C, which is a fighting hormon, now fighting the own health.
The mentality of the entire supply chain, from manufacturer, to sales person, to trusted and revered medical doctors to the sick assed politicians that snivel ‘who me’ as they legislate the deaths of tens of thousands comes directly out of Freddy Kruger’s imagination…sick effer’s with no morals, no ethics and carloads of greeeeeeeeed.
Purdue Pharma is guilty of manslaughter. As a former oxycodone addict (250 mg/ day, my pain docs called me “dependent”) , I KNOW what I speak. They let docs overprescribe – in fact, my doc told me they were told to increase dosage – while they have no real addiction training, don’t understand substance abuse, nor have ANY idea how to titrate down. Took me three years on methadone, but the drug clinic got me opioid free, after 15 years! I suffer chronic pain from a neck injury, and I’ve become disabled, so life can suck at times. But I’m no longer a junkie!
Have you ever heard of a breathing process, by which it is possible to reduce such pains you have. Here acts in special oxygen, what is total different to oxycontin.
Good for you!
This could be good for every one, when they are interested in healing themselves…………..
Any emotional pain causing any illness base on an INNER separation between maleness and femaleness. This so to say an inner gender fight, causing pain.
All crimes are active bacause of an inner emotional pain where feeling one self as a worthless being is the reason for violence of any kind.
Pain shoots pain.
When there should come peace on earth, all human beings has to heal themselves inside.
The Sackler should be in jail but the rich will never see the inside of a jail.
The rich live inside a rich jail, not knowing that their richesness is a jail.
Who knows what a human soul is???
