      Am I missing something?

      Isn’t the title of this particular video, “Rupublicans Are SUING Big Pharma”?

      Why would you expect a story that is clearly titled and topical to cover something that wasn’t even eluded to?

      +RubberWilbur I don’t know if I’d agree. He’s done almost everything the GOP establishment wants him to. Pulling out of the paris accord, appointing gorsuch, appointing his entire cabinet. It’s almost all by the republican playbook. Either Trump is a republican or he’s an independent being controlled by the GOP.

    B-b-but Social Conservatives told me that Big Pharma was my friend? D:

    • Posted by Jace Solomon, at Reply

      Tyrion L yes that is quite pointless but the main problem wasn’t that there are 76 genders the main issue was that transgender and gay people are a oppressed group. Also it’s science that we don’t know the amount of genders or anything in general which is why scientist of so important.

      Also the ruling parties tend to disagree on things that will help the 99% but hurt the 1%.

      Also we can’t work within the government we need to fight back. If we don’t fight against the system things like slavery and Jim Crow and oppression of many ethnicities won’t end. Also I will not be happy being a coward.

    • Posted by Jace Solomon, at Reply

      Tyrion L Tyrion L Tyrion L well considering gay people just got the right to get marriages which is something many conservatives want to take away and that many places want to ban gay people from facilities is oppression. Also I don’t care about the rural places that want gays dead but when their representatives try to use their power to oppress people gets on my nerves. And yes people have the right to be boots but they don’t have the right to oppress people for their bigotrys.

      Also the best way to change something isn’t by being a cog in the machine. It’s to be an outside tool because sometimes the machine must be destroyed entirely and replaced. Also progress has always came from outer forces. Also I think complainers are better than people who think like you, want to change things but rather talk about complainers. You’re taking the cowardly route. And yes if you haven’t noticed people aren’t just complaining they are putting in time and effort to fight this beast we call American government. You seem to have given up.

      That’s why i said “anymore”. you may have republicans who oppose gay marriage but many more republicans and democrats agree with it. obviously that is part of the game.

      if you really think that people on the outside of the government have made significant change then you are simply naive. progress has always not come from outer forces. when you march the government laughs at you, you think your opinions have weight while in reality the government knows you are going to wake up the next day and go to your job, or go to school being compliant.

      you claim that “It’s to be an outside tool because sometimes the machine must be destroyed entirely and replaced” lol in reality, that doesn’t work anymore. the government still stands and will never be destroyed unless something destroys it by force, you would have to be willing to die to change. no one is at that point yet, they complaining about it to be changed while the government keeps working doing what it does.

      TYT created justice democrats and wolf pac for a reason, those are powers within the government. those powers are not on the outside they are in the inside.

      you just seem to come off as a anarchist. which TYT does not agree with. you think the only way you think you can win is by a head on collision with something much bigger you would be taking down hundreds of thousands if not millions of lives in the process. that is stupid.

    Keeping cannabis illegal AND suing Big Pharma? Do they even know what they want? Lol

    • Posted by Bible Man, at Reply

      +rose novel I’m not arguing that marijuana is safer than crack cocaine that big pharmaceuticals push on you. I’m just saying that you can have responsible pharmaceutical companies, without legalizing marijuana. Here in Finland, pot is illegal, but we somehow don’t have an epidemic of druggies hooked on painkillers.The problem is your “free market” that incentiveses big P to hook your population on killer stuff. Same thing happens in Russia, with antibiotics. Pharmaceutical companies “donate” to health board and hospitals, then all of a sudden you get prescribed five different antibiotics for a simple flu.

    • Posted by Julie Ake, at Reply

      Cheshire Kat Pot is a gate way to nothing. Everyone thst smokes weed does not go on to harder drugs that is not the truth. Some folks just dont have commonsense. Case in point who does a drug if they know its going to kill you? That a mental issue. As we know their is a whole lot of stupid in this country. Alot of people have mental issues and self medicate and will take whatever makes them feel better. Stop blaming something that is almost harmless for mentals going on to harder drugs.

      They legalized medical marijuana in Ohio in 2016, they think the first patients and dispensaries should be open and functioning in 2018.

      One of the big reasons it was able to FINALLY pass (there have been many attempts before 2016) was due, unfortunately, to the opiod addiction epidemic. While it is not making it legal for all personal consumption, it is a step in the right direction.

    I’m just mentioning, weed actually does have dangerous side effects…under the age of 25.

    While the brain is still developing, weed comsumption can lead to short-term memory loss and damge to the cognitive functions of the brain. I’m all for legalising marajuana, just be sensible.

    P.s. smoking weed it still leads to lung cancer, so if it were widespread, watch the numbers spike

    • Posted by Melissa Machado, at Reply

      Ryan Hall you know, there are other countries that HAVE had enough scientific research to prove otherwise. Look it up, America is in beginning stages of cannabis research. Because it’s federally illegal. Misinformation, is telling people it’s dangerous when it’s harmless. The only thing some people can’t handle is the feeling induced from the psychoactive part of cannabis.

    • Posted by Tyrion L, at Reply

      Ari Ufondu opioids have always been a problem. crack cocaine has always been a problem. obviously educating people about drugs doesn’t work and fighting them through war doesn’t work either. suing the company creating the drug could work to an extent though. you can’t sue people who make crack cocaine. it is the individual’s problem for getting addicted to the drug.

  13. Posted by Mackenzie Bergagnini, at Reply

    What they fail to mention is that there is difference between opioid dependence and opioid addiction. Yes, people who are in chronic pain often become dependent on pain medication to function in a semi-normal way. Some chronic pain cannot be be fixed by surgery or other treatment options. They aren’t addicted to the “high” they simply need relief from their pain to complete everyday tasks. Living in chronic pain is also dangerous with rates of depression of suicidal thoughts being higher. I agree that doctors and patients need to be informed about the risks of these drugs but they are talking as though these drugs provide no benefit and are completely unregulated.

    • Posted by AEP, at Reply

      This is so true! Chronic pain does need to be taken seriously for the sake of those who suffer from it and are at increased risk of social and emotional issues, like anxiety, depression, etc., and suicidal thoughts. As such, it would be beyond unethical to hold the behavior of others against those with a true need. I also agree with you that doctors and patients need to be informed about the risks. That said, long-term opioid use is not right for everyone with chronic pain (I know you didn’t say this. It’s just that it’s worth clarifying for those who don’t do well with middle-ground.). The criteria does need to be set extremely high, and candidates for such use should be determined by a legitimate pain specialist. Primary care physicians are not qualified to make such a determination, much less treat patients’ additional needs (as mentioned above), set appropriate dosages, etc.. Primary care physicians are also far too likely to throw a bone to favorite clients who otherwise wouldn’t meet the criteria. The pill-pushing ‘pain docs’ who run pop-up clinics in semi-abandoned strip malls (Florida style) need to be shut down, among the other actions taken against them.

    • Posted by umiluv, at Reply

      Mackenzie Bergagnini – the problem is that in certain states there are no alternatives to opioids. Marijuana products like CBD oils and extracts (no high experienced) can also help chronic pain sufferers and are not physically addictive.

      It’s a serious problem with Big Pharma normalizing opioids instead of encouraging government to legalize medical marijuana to give patients actual alternatives. Big Pharma exists to make money not to actually help patients.

    • Posted by Pack Rat, at Reply

      Mackenzie Bergagnini So 20% of Ohio needs this mega powerful pain pill to function normally…

    • Posted by Mackenzie Bergagnini, at Reply

      I’m not saying that opioid are not over prescribed. I’m simply saying that the panel is completely discounting the fact that some people do need these drugs. Opiods can be life-changing for people who suffer from chronic pain.

  14. Posted by Andrea Trimble, at Reply

    PLEASE… educate yourselves on pain treatment. Talk to pain patients and learn about the fight legitimate pain patients have to go thru to get the relief they desperately need. Educate yourselves on how the physical dependence on a drug is far different than being addicted to it. In watching your video, I’m seeing classic, knee-jerk, old school thought & opinions on pain treatment & management. PLEASE don’t further the ignorance, okay? Thank you.

      Please explain to me how taking these highly addictive drugs for regular pain WONT get them addicted…

    • Posted by AEP, at Reply

      +. Dan – I imagine that the person who made the initial post could very well explain how chronic pain affects the brain and how the brain perceives relief (pain receptors, etc) … or, you could do your own research on the matter instead of leaving it up to someone else and taking their word for it. Google is a wondrous thing. The bottom line with this topic is that chronic pain can be dangerous too (again, Google is your friend). It is not an easy problem with an easy solution, but it is also unethical to not sufficiently treat someone who has a legitimate pain issue simply because someone else has a drug issue.

  16. Posted by Jacqueline Arsenault, at Reply

    As someone who suffers from chronic pain, some people truly can only use opioids to reduce their pain. I personally have not, but at one point I basically begged my doctor for something just to not feel pain anymore. I’m still trying to find ways for pain relief, but I know with my families history with addiction, I should stay clear of it. other people have tried everything, and opioids are their only option. they can be used as pain killers as long as the person using them is checked regularly and has support around them to help them not abuse it.

    • Posted by Katrina L, at Reply

      If only there was something that could help with chronic pain, but doesn’t have the negative effects of pharmaceutical opioids… Hmm….🌿

    • Posted by Jacqueline Arsenault, at Reply

      Katrina L well I use medical marijuana, but I’m still trying to figure out what helps without getting fucked up. I use vape pens and edibles because I don’t like smoking straight flower. edibles give an extreme high a lot and pens don’t last very long for me.

    • Posted by Katrina L, at Reply

      +Jacqueline Arsenault Depending on the amount of pain, that may be worth it a lot more that risking dangerous addiction. I see opioids as a last resort, not first just because a doctor recommended it.

    • Posted by Jacqueline Arsenault, at Reply

      That is what I won’t use opioids. There was a time that I considered it though and i know for some people it’s their best or only options.
