DEA tracked every opioid pill sold in the US. The data is out—and it’s horrific

 

  •  07/17/2019 4:12 pm

"Between 2006 and 2012, opioid drug makers and distributors flooded the country with 76 billion pills of oxycodone and hydrocodone—highly addictive opioid pain medications that sparked the epidemic of abuse and overdoses that killed nearly 100,000 people in that time period...

According to an analysis of the data by the Post, just three companies made 88% of the opioid pills: SpecGx, Actavis Pharma, and Par Pharmaceutical, a subsidiary of Endo Pharmaceuticals. Purdue Pharma ranked fourth, making 3% of the pills. Just six companies distributed 75% of the pills: McKesson Corp., Walgreens, Cardinal Health, AmerisourceBergen, CVS, and Walmart."

They need to go to the root of the problem- where they're coming from to begin with, drug companies and the doctors making fortunes from writing them. Drug companies sell them out the back door, proven but no one cares. Some doctors get busted, others have protection.

A whistleblower came out to say that oxycontin was created to addict people. It's done a good job of that! Destroyed families, lives... Still, all their solutions involve attacking patients that truly NEED the medicine! No one ever speaks of them and how it's hurt them. 

The drug companies and doctors keep flooding the market, and the band plays on.
