A stunning stat was simply uncovered that reveals just how bad The U.S.A.'s opioid crisis is. Cenk Uygur and also Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us just what you assume in the comment section listed below.

Find out more right here:

" If you want to know how the opioid epidemic got so uncontrollable, it's tough to do better than this statistic: Between 2006 as well as 2016, out-of-state medicine business shipped virtually 21 million opioid medicines to 2 drug stores in Williamson, West Virginia, population 2,900.

That originates from a report by Eric Eyre at the Charleston Gazette-Mail, citing a brand-new legislative examination into enormous deliveries of the opioid medicines oxycodone and hydrocodone in West Virginia by medicine dealers Miami-Luken and H.D. Smith.

Previously, Eyre had actually discovered in a prize-winning examination that from 2007 to 2012, medicine companies poured an overall of 780 million pain relievers right into the state– which has an overall population of regarding 1.8 million. The small town of Kermit had a population of 392, yet a single drug store there received 9 million hydrocodone tablets over two years from out-of-state medicine business.

We understand the repercussions. West Virginia experienced without a doubt the greatest medicine overdose death price from any kind of state in 2016, the current year with full information. The state's overdose death rate was 48.3 each 100,000 people that year, according to the Centers for Illness Control as well as Avoidance. In contrast, the state's murder rate in 2016 was 5.9 each 100,000, as well as its rate of deadly auto accident was 15." *.

    they need politicians to enforce the law in wv so all those drug addicts and dealers can be put where they belong. In jail. Just like they did with the crack epidemic.

    Hey, Duterte! I got some drug dealers you can look into!

    This is the result of the for profit healthcare system. Injuries go untreated- chronic pain develops as a result- opioids get used.

    Funny how the US is still in Afghanistan. You know, the country that grows all the poppy. The US didn’t have the opioid problem till we took that over. I wonder why?🤔….. No I don’t. It’s big pharma.

    • Posted by izovire, at Reply

      Yep, Afghanistan produces more than any other country combined! If it’s not for oil, it’s for big pharma.

      16 days into Turkey’s unprovoked attack on Syrian Kurds in Afrin (killing about as many civilians as soldiers), aiming to go all the way into Iraq, and Cenk is silent.

    • Posted by Toad Jiang, at Reply

      Also, before the US took over, Afghanistan only produced less than 200 tons of opium per year, 5 years after Americans took over, it produced more than 8,000 tons of opium per year.

    This is why America is still in Afghanistan, big pharma is NO different from the scummy drug dealer on the corner only difference is your Gov’t is helping these corporations by providing security to the poppy fields. Your Gov’t is nothing but a two bit shady drug dealer and yet they keep increasing the amount on military spending and they make sure single payer healthcare stays a pipe dream, BOTH party’s. Any politician who takes money from pharmaceutical company’s and who agreed to the increase in military spending is complicit in the deaths of these people imo.

    Marijuana still IS a gateway drug. For Blacks, it’s a “Gateway to Prison” drug. So far we have 8 states in the USA that allow medicinal and recreational Marijuana use with a 9th, Vermont, coming this summer. What do they all have in common?? Their Black population ranges between 1-8% (below National Avg 13%). Washington (3% Black ), Oregon (1% Black ), California (6% Black), Nevada (8% Black), Colorado (4% Black), Alaska (3% Black), Massachusetts (6% Black), and Maine (1% Black). In addition Vermont, which will be added in July 2018, 1% Black. Not only this, but notice these states all are FAR away from The South. Why is that important? Because nearly 60% (24 million) of Black Americans live in The South. With only Louisiana and Florida having any restricted medicinal marijuana laws, nothing else exists in The South.

    This is by design.

    Meanwhile they are jacking up middle class whites with opioids with WV being their “Gateway”.

    • Posted by TollFree999, at Reply

      Nixon set it up that way, so of course.

    • Posted by David Harrison, at Reply

      Alaska is 3% black? I’m surprised it’s that high.

    • Posted by Ian Ford, at Reply

      David Harrison Yeah I was kinda surprised by that too.

    This is pure insanity. I did a video on the 60 minutes episode with the ex-DEA agent, and they discussed Kermit, WV. Population 290 people and 9 million pills in 2 years. This place Williamson is 20 miles away. This is completely insane.

    when it comes to big pharma and opioid addictions, they don’t care, as long as they get paid first, as they willfully place profits before people!

    • Posted by Erin Smith, at Reply

      I am going to have to differ with your opinion, as I have seen it happen, as my friends made the personal choice to take cocaine and other illegal drugs, of their own accord, no one held a gun to their heads and coerced them or forced them to do it! Addiction starts as a choice, and because of that, it should not be classified as an disease. There is grounds for it to be classified as a “mental disease, with physical attributes” but that is for doctors to determine; so anyone telling me that “addiction is a disease” will get a face full of retorts from me on the subject! As drugs are just like cigarettes, alcohol and every other social drug out there, you choose to try them, whether out of curiosity or some other reason, it is still a choice.

      Erin Smith read my second comment the American Medical association considers its a disease, this is not opinion this is fact.
      Cough well actually my third comment on this thread

    • Posted by Radical Socialist Democracy, at Reply

      Erin Smith this is a complicated subject ma’m leave it to the medical professionals most of which consider it a disease

    • Posted by Radical Socialist Democracy, at Reply

      Pharma is paid first, then the private prisons, we have turned sick people into criminals

    • Posted by Radical Socialist Democracy, at Reply

      You get half of it in your first/original comment, but the other half is completely missed.

  13. Posted by Necro Kittie, at Reply

    I’ve taken them multiple times in my life. I’ve never gotten addicted. studies show people who are unhappy with their lives are the ones who get addicted. i live life in pain due to a bad back. alieve is what i turn to.

    • Posted by Radical Socialist Democracy, at Reply

      Environment is key to addiction it’s a very complicated subject, the most important thing to understand is it is a disease, one that can’t be cured, and until we treat drugs as a health problem rather than a criminal one, we will solve nothing.

    • Posted by joseph4861, at Reply

      Agreed Toxic Shame/unconscious self hatred is what drives addiction and the need to numb out.

    • Posted by Radical Socialist Democracy, at Reply

      joseph4861 I highly recommend Dr Carl Hart on this subject, there is quite a lot to this, but yes shame and self hatred is one factor that can play a roll, it’s not the most important one and is often actually a result that further perpetuates the problem.

    • Posted by Radical Socialist Democracy, at Reply

      Shame and self hatred isn’t always a factor either, some times it’s the exact opposite aswell, tons of things can go into this

  14. Posted by mennnok, at Reply

    The US is broken, you don’t have healthcare jobs or education so its driving people to legal and illegal drug use but the only thing really dealt with is the illegal drug use because you think the rest is too expensive.

    Are the clickbaity titles really necessary?

    • Posted by Urrcreavesh, at Reply

      Titles aside, do you have any other complaints? The titles draw people in. Is the content false or misleading?

    • Posted by Dreaming Spanish, at Reply

      Urrcreavesh titles are my only complaint. It feels dishonest and detracts value from the TYT in the long run I believe.

    • Posted by Urrcreavesh, at Reply

      Fair. I personally get put off when they take a story which needs to get told, they tell it, and then they spend a few minutes getting angry about it. ‘swhy I kind of started listening to David Pakman instead. He does gild the outrage lily from time to time, but he doesn’t raise his voice while doing so. Only time I like being yelled at is when I’m listening to rock.

    West Virginia, so much winning.

    About the people tht actually need pain meds and can’t get what they need because of people getting them that don’t need

    • Posted by Marvelous Marvin, at Reply

      I am facing this problem now with my mother who is 77 years old in chronic pain and is so fragile she can barely move. Yet physical therapy is the only treatment they want to offer. They want to act as if the pain is only in her mind. They should have to spend one day caring for her as I do. Yet the pill pushers in this city and surrounding areas get all the pills they want and then some. I guess death will be the only relief she will eventually receive.

    • Posted by Teddy Marian, at Reply

      I agree, im dealing with the consequences of junkies who abuse opiates for my chronic pain too.

    A lot of these addicted white working class people voted for Trump, and who did he put in charge to address this problem? Look it up. He doesn’t care about you folks!
