In Defense Of Opioids & Big Pharma



As always, our blog community is dedicated to looking for the ALTERNATIVE PERSPECTIVE ON ALL TOPICS and this note sent our way certainly qualifies as such . . .

In fairness, take a look:

"I appreciate you covering this sort of issue, but at the same time it's important to note that well over 85% of any increase in "opioid deaths" are from illicit fentanyl and not from prescription opioids. I am a researcher in this topic, and the nuance is important. Further, 89% of opioids that end up on the street are from thefts of pharmacies and hospitals and the like. Chronic pain patients that receive opioid analgesics are being lumped in with the people dying from overdoses when there is very little overlap, and as a result many states have restricted opioid prescribing despite the fact that fever than 3% of people who use opioids long term ever become addicted to their medications. Despite these facts, misconceptions have persisted and caused a great deal of harm to people suffering from pain, including many deaths from untreated pain (which result in death frequently, especially when people have had their pain relieved (and the length of their life extended) and are suddenly tapered, as has been happening all over the U.S.. A little bit of nuance goes a long way when talking about this issue. Thanks for your consideration."

You decide . . .

OcyContin 100mg are the way to go. They are not addictive. I take 3 or 4 in the morning with a couple of shots of Crown Royal. In the late afternoon I repeat this. After doing this daily for 8 years I have not become addicted. Once a week, I try some heroin with a little fentanyl but it doesn't quite work as well. It seems like with the heroin I either get too high or not high enough

I hate fucking addicts, and their treatments have raised the costs for the rest of us.

Hell, Blue Cross is pulling our of individual plans and I know people who are losing their insurance, but these pieces of garbage get treatment for their addictions

Fuck them and Fuck You All.

Well then I reckon the next time you see an addict you going to kill him huh? Or at least walk up to him and slap him down, huh?

Anonymous said...

Is just one more thing that's bugging me, when you go to kill this addict, as you put it kill. Am I correct? Well my question is this, how are you going to know that that person is an addict?

Anonymous said...
