Drugged! … By Big Pharma? Prescription Drugs and the Opioid Crisis – Astute News
You don’t have to be a genius sometimes to just ‘connect the dots’. Since 2012 Big Pharma ads for prescription drugs, especially on the boob tube, has risen by 62%. You cannot channel surf without seeing a myriad of ads pushing almost every drug out there, for almost every condition (Thank God for the law making these Big Pharma predators notify the suckers of the side effects).
Meanwhile, let’s just mention one statistic from just on state, Arizona, where 949 people died from opioids in one year, 2017. Here’s the interesting kicker: This was a 109 % increase since 2012.
Duh, am I just paranoid or is there something going on here? Let’s see, the legal drug pushers bombard us all with ‘ Drugs help you ‘ ads day and night on all our channels. While this is going on, more and more Americans are swallowing opioids , most of the time by prescription. Of course, once they are hooked on these minor league narcotics, they resort to getting them black market if the availability is threatened by legal means. We all know that one of the largest industries in states like mine, Florida, is these ‘ Pain clinic mills ‘ where corrupt MDs sell their souls for the easy money. Opioid addicts drive from surrounding states, resembling the depression era Dust Bowl refugees heading for greener pastures.
Why is the US practically the ONLY developed nation that allows drug ads on TV?
Drug pushers are going to get people hooked and then keep them addicted.
