  1. It's a good thing Trump solved this problem day one, like he promised. Hillary's looking through prison bars, like he promised. There is a ban on all Muslims, like he promised. Mexico is paying for the wall, like he promised. Winning. So much winning.

  2. This pisses me off so much. I’m so sick of hearing about this war on drugs and that we have an opioid epidemic. What we have are freaking morons that don’t take the narcotic as prescribed on the bottle, so therefore that causes overdose, how hard is that to figure out?!?! Now so many people out there are going to suffer tremendously, whether they have chronic pain or major surgery ALL BECAUSE of these idiots that chose NOT to take the medicine the way they were freaking supposed to!! I don’t understand how hard this is to figure out and make a decision for. Do they not get that True addiction is actually misusing and abusing the drug. If individuals are taking it exactly prescribed on the bottle that is not a freaking addiction!!! All this is going to do is make people even more desperate, especially the stinking drug addicts, so then what they’ll do is they’ll just turn to heroin on the streets.

  3. One every 9 MINUTES!? WHY is this being ignored & not shown. You seldom hear about this on the news. The numbers are STAGGERING. I swear no one really cares WTF

  4. There will always be some kind of drug epidemic. Coke, Crack, meth, bath salts, are still big on the streets. Drugs are never going away. Get rid of heroine and meth and crack will become popular once again.

  5. We’re not as barbaric as hillary and those countries. If it were legal, dealers would have to actually get a job much like the moonshiners that has gone legal, they too could open a dispensary for pot. Do some research and then tell me what you’d do. Especially if it were your child that was addicted. Or dealing to feed their addiction.

  6. NOT OUR PROBLEM!!! These addics have caused this themselves & now our government wants us to pay to fix it. Fuck them!!! Nature will filter out these morons just give it time. All tax payers in America that chose to not do opioids GIVE "0" Fucks!!

  7. People are literally suffering inhumane chronic pain, 24/7, unable to stay asleep over 30-45 minutes due to the pain & the damn government is creating a more serious problem for these people. Doctors afraid of prescribing needed opiods due to a bunch of law enforcement who cannot even spell healthcare much less know anything about it. Speechless

  8. There are people out there that have chronic pain and then there are those that abuse it, I also know first hand what addiction is having a couple family members that are addicts . My opinion do random drug test and also to bring there medication to show that they are not abusing it or selling it to buy other drugs.It is just a suggestion , if you take your meds as precribed and head the warning sign's not to drink alcohol while taking and don't take more than prescribed there would not be as many over doses

  9. How to tackling “The Opioid Epidemic?”

    In Indonesia, there’re several combination of herbs that can prevent and cure addiction of narcotic. This herbs not only detoxify the toxin in the body due to the influence of narco, but to some extent able to turn off the desire of addicts to re-consume narcotics.

    The Herbs chriteria are :
    More humane because without the need to be isolated.
    Drug addiction sufferers do not have to be forced to stop taking drugs, but by itself will stop because its effect is replaced by this herbal, just need the will to quit.
    The Herbs able to relieve the conditions experienced by addicted drug users. For users of drugs other than methadone types, Herbal reaction will work faster.
    Several other effects can be felt with stools being normal, weight gain, normal sleep patterns, feelings of pain are lost and some HIV positive people without an increase in CD4 cell count
    This herb is in the form of fine powder, so it is easy to use mixed as a drink or encapsulated.
    This herbs can be used also in children and adolescents because it can prevent them falling into the drug addiction and drug addiction ravines.
    With the above criteria, are there any scientists and herbalist interested in researching them?

  10. Hate to tell you some more bad news not just this plaque white people are not reproducing fast enough hear and Europe. White man sperm count is low white woman eggs are defrosting in cryogenic machines malfunction look it up. They better leave us alone and look at yourself .

  11. Allah has waged war on the white race and there is nothing anyone can do..Read your Bible and you will see if you are wise.

  12. Lies, lies, lies, huge fucking lies!
    The opioid "epidemic" is totally non existent.
    The only epidemics in america are those of stupidity, ignorance, and incompetence.

  13. Gentlemen, the Mexicans are putting Fentanyl into the heroin supply! Further, you can't die from an opiate withdrawal. Talk to recovering addicts, not these pencil neck degree holding idiots!
    We all know the risk, I did. Stop ALL the drugs coming in from Mexico; MDMA (Ecstasy), Pseudoephedrine (Meth), and Fentanyl (extremely powerful opiate). Simple

  14. You peck'woods did not say a dam word when we were dying from crack all you did was shoot us and lock us up!!? And broughg the drugs in our communities. Your type needs to die. And you ask for the pills, heroin and killing yourself's. You mess with the TMH children now you have to pay. Not just hear you are falling out but all over the world.

  15. Has anyone ever thought because there are less pills given to pain patients that they are going to kill themselves??  You have to look at all the agendas here.  I am a pain patient and these opiods let me LIVE LIFE, they SAVED my life.

  16. Alcohol kills millions yearly but that's something everyone's aware of as if it's part of our culture and just old news nobody cares about.Opiods stories/Deaths on the other hand fascinate people and make for big news and that's why you see it all over the tv.Now that the yearly death toll is around 70 or 80 thousand it will continue to be a media frenzy and only hurt people who endure agonizing chronic pain and need these medications.Hell even tobacco kills half a million a year,why don't they run that on the news everynight,but then again those 500,000 deaths are just old news nobody cares about anymore either.

  17. Sessions is one of the biggest morons ever. ALL drug deaths combined are not even in the top ten killers in the U.S. and alcohol related deaths are about 25% more yet there's no alcohol epidemic. Why not? And alcohol IS a drug so he's clearly wrong… he's just a wrong, a dim-witted moron. The CDC admitted that they got it wrong, that it wasn't legally obtained opioids that was the problem yet the DEA and Sessions will never admit it. Did they just buy a ton of rehab stocks or what? What is their angle and why are they putting so many suffering from severe chronic pain illnesses in even more misery? I hope they all ultimately get to experience unrelenting severe, 24/7 pain and that they can't get help. They'd all be jumping off of bridges. And THAT would be the best thing that could happen.

  18. The most deaths related to opioids come from fentanyl. And there's more deaths from tobacco every year than anything else.

  19. Stop making it difficult for people with genuine pain to get narcotic pain meds, its feels like going to see a probation officer to get pains now than a doctor

  20. We dont need more foster parents……what a ridiculous thing to say…….We need to hold these Junkies accountable……..

  21. Yes they're good for pain and good for people who NEED it.. but they turn on you!! They turn people into druggies.. they create addiction in ones mind as well as a physical dependence on the drug… I've been to more funerals then I have weddings .. more then half of my generation is dead. My ex girlfriend – DEAD. My 4 best friends – DEAD.
    Along with 25 other friends of mine I grew up with, played ball with, went to school with, drank with. Partied with. -DEAD before I could even legally take a drink. People I loved that I had to fucking bury. And like a sick joke I survived for some twisted reason after 14 years of suffering on OxyContin for the first couple years then Heroin for the rest. my doctor got arrested by the DEA for being dirty after guess what.. YOU GUESSED it!! Two friends of mine overdosed and died from his OxyContin script he gave them in the same week. So he went to prison "where he ended up killing himself" and I now had no more Oxy.. so I ended up finding Heroin on the streets since it was a lot cheaper and got me a good nod… at first. I have a lot of homegirls who ended up turning themselves out for it too.. it's not pretty where this shit leads. I was lucky enough that ABC7 news literally came to my house and did an intervention on me with Action Family Counseling Rehab Centers. It's still on ABC7's website if you go to their search bar and type in Simi Valley heroin intervention it will pop up. They did a piece on the addiction problem in my city due to the rash spike in overdose deaths.. and these weren't 40 or 50 year old bums living under the freeway, they were kids.. just like I was. Dropping like fucking flies.
    I was just lucky enough that I was the person they did the intervention on.
    Now I'm still clean and sober and going to school to work in recovery for addicts and alcoholics.
    Miracles to happen.. but I'm not gonna lie… I miss my fucking friends man 🙁
    Sometimes I wonder why I was spared when so many around me were not.
    :/ you'd think that shit would get someone clean earlier right ?! Kinda scare them straight right ?? Nope. It just fueled it even more. I drowned my pain and loneliness and feelings of abandonment by God with drugs and alcohol till I didn't feel anymore .. literally trying to blot out my miserable existence till I hopefully died..
    but l guess God didn't abandon me like I had once thought..
    please be safe people and seek recovery. It's possible. I've overdosed three times.. got kidnapped sold all my shit had track marks all up and down both arms as long as abcesses on my arms.. so I starting shooting up in my neck.. been homeless been to jail been 5150'd and robbed people. I did everything except sell my body or anything like that "I'm a guy thankfully.. cuz if I was a girl, I'm not sure I would be able to still be able to say that" I ended up an IV user shooting goofballs "meth + heroin" everyday all day. Trust me if I can get and STAY clean you can too !!! Please If you have a problem go to rehab or some kind of treatment center or detox or detox yourself with suboxone. But please find AA/NA meetings in your area.. get plugged in get a sponsor and do the steps!! The program saved my life and I've seen it save people who were deemed HOPELESS by society if your honest with yourself about your problem and are WILLING to go to ANY lengths to have VICTORY over your alcoholism/addiction. No reservations. No "I'll just do it on weekends or once a month"
    Once you totally surrender.. and surrender to the process. Then the recovery process can start. Stay safe everyone. God bless. By the way.. I celebrated my one year clean off Heroin.. and everything else including Alcohol , bud , meth .. anything that changes your consciousness. Anyways lol. If someone hasn't told you this today, I love you. You matter. You deserve a life free from the bondage of addiction. You deserve victory over your Demons.. which can be won one step at a time.. one day at a time!

  22. The only epidemic is one of severe dumbass.
    This is the most blatantly none existent "epidemic" in the history of humankind.
    Millions of people who have legitimate reasons and who responsibly utilize this medication are unnecessarily suffering because some fucking greedy idiots concocted a way to suck more money from taxpayers.
    I hope there really is a hell so they can fully experience the pain and suffering they are causing to others.

  23. CDC admits lieing in spring 2018 no opiod crisis at all only 3500 doctors have a license . But news channels have to make money so they need one because they do not care.

  24. Ok i do understand how someone with chronic pain need their drugs to function daily…but look at it this way SOME patients are abusing their meds and it makes it hard for those who are following instructions….I've been in pharmacy for 22 years i can back that up with so many facts

  25. This so-called opioid crisis is bullshit, these junkies are overdosing on heroin and phyntenol smuggled over the southern border, so the government in its infinite wisdom decides to attack legitimate pain patients and clinics that are overseen and regulated by the DEA and FDA by restricting the meds that people like me need to function properly day to day
    In 2015 the 60K overdose deaths, only .3% were patients who go to pain clinics, that's about 300 people out of a country of 330 million
    I have to drive 300 miles round trip over the worst roads in Wyoming just to get refills on the meds that I need to get thru a day
    If an oilfield truck wipes me out on an icy winter road, is the government gonna chalk me up as an opioid casualtie?
    I was diagnosed at THE Mayo Clinic in Rochester with SEVERE nerve damage in my lumbar and cervical and I have neuropathy too, isn't that enough to get the meds that I need? I didn't ask for the injuries that caused me to go to these pain clinics
    As far as I'm concerned, let these junkies die, I don't give a shit because it looks like nobody gives a shit about me and the tens of thousands of American citizens that are in the same situation
    We're being punished for somebody's life choices
    The opioid panic is just like gun control, the government always go after the law-abiding people, it's a band-aid fix and isn't going to do a damn thing to stop the overdose deaths
    BUILD THE WALL AND PUT THE MILITARY ON THE MEXICAN BORDER

  26. More "white" Americans you mean. When the crack epidemic hit they had the war on drugs to lock all black folks up. Now since it hits home and the drug epidemic is hitting the white community they are taking the treatment method instead of the war on drugs.

  27. THIS IS VERY SAD, WHERE WAS THE HELP FOR BLACK IN THE CITIES WHEN THE FELT THE HELL OF THE CRACK EPEDEMIC YOU ARRESTED THEM AND THROW THEM IN JAIL, NOW YOU WANT TO HELP NOW THAT IT HAS COME ON YOUR DOORSTEPS. SHAME ON YOU. COMPASSION FOR ALL I SAY!!!!!!

ALL THESE OTHER MEDS ARE AS DANGEROUS AND ADDICTIVE AS HEROIN!!!! ASK YOURSELF THIS " IF THEY ARE TRYING TO GET PEOPLE OFF HEROIN AND OPIODS THAT THEY CREATED IN THE FIRST PLACE.

    WHY WOULD THEY RECOMMEND OR ALLOW ADDICTS TO STAY ON METHADONE AND ALL OTHERS FOR THE REST OF THERE LIVES!!!!!???? YES THE REST OF THERE LIVES!!! ITS NOT RIGHT!! IF YOU ARE. TRYING TO GET PEOPLE OFF YOUR MESS/PRODUCTS YOU PUSHED INTO 90% OF AMERICANS HOME/LIVES WHY NOT MAKE IT JUST A TEMPORARY THING???? 3 TO 6 MONTHS OR A YEAR THE MOST, BUT NO.

HECK THEY MADE BILLIONS OF US WITH THE NARCOTIC MEDICATIONS LIKE OXY, DILADID, PERCS AND SO ON!!! THEY HAVE THE CASH TO DO SO!!!!! BUT AGAIN THE GOV DOESN'T FORCE THEM BUT THEY GO AFTER COMPANIES LIKE THE TABOCCO INDUSTRY TO PROVIDE FREE HELP, WELL TRUTH BE TOLD THAT DIDN'T LAST EITHER LOL
