According to data by the Facility for Condition Control, 91 Americans die on a daily basis from overdosing on opioids, through both prescription medicines and also drugs like heroin. Yet it's that first class– prescription painkillers– that is a major reason for issue. America's Lawyer Mike Papantonio discusses the pain reliever epidemic brought upon by Big Pharma.

    Big pharma is the biggest king pen in the country. America’s version of El Choppo.

    I am a Republican and yet I am fully in favor of legalizing cannabis for exactly this reason. We have documented proof that marijuana is effective in helping those with opioid addictions to switch to a far safer alternative. In addition cannabis is not physically addictive, does not cause cancer, (can be consumed via vaper or food to avoid carcinogens in smoke) and is a drug that is literally 100 times less harmful than alcohol. Yet my grandparents and parents generations bought into the propaganda of the war on drugs. That same war is responsible for the deaths, imprisonment and destruction of so many lives that it far outweighs any damage done by marijuana. I say it is time to legalize, regulate and tax cannabis just like alcohol.

    But weed is bad according to conservatives.

    • Posted by John Lynn, at Reply

      I know a member of the alt-right who wants weed legalized and who has smoked it for decades. I also know many liberals who want weed legalized but believe getting high for fun is wrong. It is a diverse world out there, go make friends outside your bubble. It will help you grow up.

      *Tells me to ‘grow up’*

      *Uses anecdotal evidence to show tolerance for weed among conservatives, when in reality, the vast majority of conservative republicans do not support legalization*

      That’s cute.

      “But weed is bad according to conservatives” Okay, fine. That is true. I thought you meant “all” conservatives. If you only meant most or some conservatives, that isn’t a statement even worth making, because like I said it is a diverse world. Of course conservatives say weed is bad. Conservatives say weed is okay too, 33% of them according to the poll you linked to.

    • Posted by Hal Jordan, at Reply

      Wow. A few conservatives actually aren’t complete morons when it comes to weed, so that must mean they’re diverse in their ways, even though it’s been them and their leadership that have been blocking legalization for decades. Thank you for showing me the error of my ways.

    End the drug war, suspend all medical patents on publicly funded research( pills,devices,whatever ) end the corporate lawsuit protection.

    There will always be stupid people who waste there lives on drugs, driving up the cost of their habit only hurts the children.

      I agree there is a problem!! You/I should not be made to pay for health care of the being who eats 6 gallons of ice cream, smokes 6 packs of cigarettes and 4 Pounds of bacon an hour. I eat healthy and walk every day!

    prescribers of drugs scare the hell out of me. more incompetence in medicine than i ever would have imagined. american medicine is an absolute joke. doctors and drug makers should be ashamed of their apathy and lack of caring about the patients. disgusting.

      Jeff Shoemaker yeah, how dare they make a product to help ease people’s pain and tell people in pain that they should take it

    • Posted by Jeff Shoemaker, at Reply

      Joe Scirrotto is a little behind the curve on what actually happens in healthcare. he likes to tell himself stories about how wonderful everyone and everything is. joe lives in a fantasy world.

      Jeff Shoemaker is a paranoid fuckwit who thinks everyone is out to get him and has no belief in basic human decency. Jeff lives in a fantasy world

    • Posted by Jeff Shoemaker, at Reply

      Joe Scirrotto i argue that it is incompetence, not malice. there is surely malice, but mostly just laziness, profit, and basic idiocy. my entire family are in healthcare, i heard their apathy growing up and it wasnt until i was a medic in the military for 6 years and saw the terrible diagnostic care from some of the highest ranking doctors in the military that i learned my family and their co- workers suffered from disillusionment and compassion fatigue among many other unhealthy work environment problems.

    Legal medical marijuana countrywide= less opioid problems.

    Opiates are very effective at controlling pain for some people. Get off people’s necks.

    • Posted by nexus1g, at Reply

      no way, do you really think the addictive properties of opium is a new find that was covered up? People have known for thousands of years that opium causes a chemical dependency. Literally, thousands of years. It’s been used in the US for well over 100 years.

      he has a problem with comprehension.

    • Posted by nexus1g, at Reply

      mugm, if you’re talking to me, I have no problem with comprehension, but I am shocked that anyone buys the narrative that opium being addictive and easily overdosed has not been a widely-known fact for at least 200 years in the Western world.

    • Posted by no way, at Reply

      from this paper: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2622774/
      “Misrepresenting the risk of addiction proved costly for Purdue. On May 10, 2007, Purdue Frederick Company Inc, an affiliate of Purdue Pharma, along with 3 company executives, pled guilty to criminal charges of misbranding OxyContin by claiming that it was less addictive and less subject to abuse and diversion than other opioids, and will pay $634 million in fines.”
      They did pay a large fine, but it was not so much when you know they made 3 billion dollar with the drug and all of it was urgently needed to treat the affected patients.

    • Posted by nexus1g, at Reply

      no way, this is like suing for spilling hot coffee on your lap.

      Even after the lawsuit, Purdue is still allowed to include the label, “The first extended-release (ER) opioid with FDA-approved labeling describing abuse-deterrent characteristics and claims
      — However, abuse of OxyContin by injection and intranasal routes, as well as by the oral route, is still possible”

      It just makes me roll my eyes that they will initiate such a witch hunt because it’s getting media attention because it’s negatively affecting upper-middle-class white families.

      And it’s a significant leap that takes someone from taking something as prescribed to abusing it. I’ve been on opiates, so I can speak from experience. There was never a draw for me to abuse the drug. Withdrawals suck, yes (it’s like having a flu), but it’s definitely not going to drive you to drug addiction. If you’re going to be an addict, you’re going to be an addict. Most of these people who have accidentally overdosed already had addiction issues; notably alcohol abuse. Isn’t that the common cocktail? Booze and opiates?

      Sessions: “I am astonished to hear people suggest that we can solve our heroin crisis by legalizing marijuana–so people can trade one life-wrecking dependency for another that’s only slightly less awful,”.

      Sessions will probably start by trying to put Tommy Chong back in Federal prison for selling another bong.
