Doctors Get Paid to Prescribe More Opioids & Production Increases in Afghanistan

Only way to keep the masses from learning that they have their own power within to fix most of their problems, is to keep the doped up and dumbed down.

Opioid overdoses are now the leading cause of death among Americans under the age of 50, killing more than 42,000 Americans a year. But despite widespread discussion about the dangers of opioids, doctors are still over-prescribing these drugs — and one of the reasons appears to be drug makers paying financial incentives to doctors who prescribe them. Opioid addiction is at an all-time high in the U.S. — so much so, it’s been identified as a significant factor in unemployment among men,1 and opioid overdoses are now the leading cause of death among Americans under the age of 50.2 According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), of the more than 63,600 Americans who died from drug overdoses in 2016,3,4 more than 42,000 were related specifically to opioids5 — a 28 percent jump in opioid deaths from the year before.

As if that’s not disturbing enough, recent research6 suggests opioid overdose deaths are being undercounted by 20 to 35 percent, due to drug omissions on death certificates.7 In many cases, the specific drug that contributed to the death isn’t listed on the death certificate, and it’s quite likely that many of the general “drug deaths” are actually due to opioids specifically. According to this paper, a more accurate count would probably put the opioid-related death toll at nearly 40,000 for 2015 and closer to 50,000 for 2016. The most common drugs involved in prescription opioid overdose deaths are methadone, oxycodone (such as OxyContin®) and hydrocodone (such as Vicodin®),8 and evidence suggests opioid makers such as Purdue Pharma, owned by:…e-opioids/

Since the invasion of Iraq, and Afghanistan, trillions of tax dollars have been lost, spent, and supplied a nation to produce poppy fields. Who has benefited from all the wars American men and women have lost lives in? What nation has achieved success from the aid of the U.S.? What people of any nation smile anymore when they see an American? They used to, until the military industrial complex and the only always in the green corporations (weapons manufacturer) needed places to play war games.
