Opioids: The Great Epidemic

Trump is elected and his family decides that they will champion the opioid crisis the country is having…I have written several post on this subject……

 
 
 
I told my readers that I had a personal connection with this situation it was published on my Op-Ed blog, Gulf South Free Press……..https://gulfsouthfreepress.wordpress.com/2018/10/03/pain-management-a-personal-story/
 
All that is my build-up to the questions as who can we say caused this medical problem……

A federal judge has ruled that a massive lawsuit that blames drug manufacturers, distributors, and pharmacies for the American opioid epidemic will proceed to trial.

“It is accurate to describe the opioid epidemic as a man-made plague, twenty years in the making. The pain, death, and heartache it has wrought cannot be overstated,” blasted U.S. District Judge Dan Polster of the Northern District of Ohio in his ruling last month.

This federal trial will take place in September.

The class action combines no fewer than 600 claims by local and state governments against the opioid industry. While the more cynical among us might think this is nothing but a cash grab by our nation’s prosecutors, the facts show that this is the least we can do to hold these corporate criminals accountable.

Plus the hard core attitude to opiates is not doing true pain sufferers any good….as a matter of fact they are making it harder for these sufferers to get the relief they need.

  1. Addiction is a strange thing. Some people become addicted to something and some don’t. But in the case of these opioids, it is almost an ‘epidemic’.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I agree with Pete. Here on the Czech border we have more and more crystal meth addicts. But i hope there will certainly be an exception for you, for medical necessity. This is now being tested even here in Germany. Have a nice day, Michael
