Of the 11,886 deaths associated with "other opioids" in 2019 (more or less prescription), 5,709 of them, or 48%, were also attributed to heroin and/or fentanyl.

It ain't prescription pain medication. #opioidcrisis

The "opioid crisis" is fixated on #Purdue and #OxyContin... when prescription opioids, on their own (presumably with or without benzos), only account for 12.4% of the 49,860 opioid related deaths in 2019... marvelous work, USA.
Total 2019:…

It's funny synths actually make it not add up... they were 36,359 (…) and heroin was 14,019 (…) plus aforementioned 11,886 = 62,264.

Idk man, #WTFentanyl.

With over 200,000 deaths caused by Opioids, are they in jail yet?
Without their chutzpah(money) they would have been in jail for life.… a thread🤗
Purdue Pharma, Sackler Family, was ook zeer rijke sponsor van de @UniLeiden, een werkgever van Leo Lucassen. Toen het teveel in de publiciteit kwam werd de band verbroken, Leo hield altijd wijselijk zijn mondje.😉…

It's been 10 years since #OxyContin was re-engineered to make it hard to crush. But #publichealth benefits are still unclear. Here is a brief video of the epidemiology challenges.

As guest speaker at FDA Advisory Committee

A *product-centric* worldview, holds that abuse deterrence is primarily the property of the drug, and that that is the PRIMARY thing that changed with the reformulation, especially in the immediate aftermath.
A *person-centric* view holds that abuse deterrence is not merely a property of the drug, but rather an interaction between engineering and society, between physiochemical properties and point-of-prescribing medical decisions.

Excelente reportagem do @EricJohnsonKOMO sobre uma grave crise dos EUA: o número crescente de drogados morando nas ruas de grandes cidades, especialmente viciados em #Metanfetamina, #Opióides (Morfina,Heroína,#OxyContin) e Cocaína/#Crack.


Merecem destaque as declarações dos policiais de Seattle, pois elas contém exatamente as mesmas reclamações que ouvimos de policiais do Rio de Janeiro ou São Paulo quando se referem às cracolândias espalhadas por aqui. ImageImageImageImage
A combinação de política criminal leniente em relação a pequenos crimes contra propriedade, de política antimanicomial e demagogia progressista destruiu não apenas lugares pobres como nosso Rio de Janeiro, levando o caos até mesmo a prósperas cidades dos EUA.

In one of the most disgusting episodes of corporate moral failure, #PurduePharma have declared bankruptcy because of lawsuits over #OxyContin, which they pushed despite knowing its addictive potential. The $35 billion in sales it generated?…
Much of it has gone to the #SacklerFamily whose name you may recognise from the Sackler Gallery at @SerpentineUK or from the new Sackler courtyard at the @V_and_A or the Sackler Wing at the @metmuseum
@AllenFrancesMD has written about this here.…
In @VanityFair David Sackler lamented “the way our philanthropy has been turned against us.”
About the many lawsuits, he said “I really don’t think there’s much in the complaints, frankly"…

I saw this drug flood my hometown in Indiana almost 20 years ago. Several of my friends died from pain pill addiction, & not just any pills, #Oxycontin specifically. No one had ever heard of it, and then one day it was everywhere…
i remember it was at almost the exact same time that the meth epidemic hit - average young people were smoking pot and being very chill and then these two horrifying and powerful drugs came along and it was like everyone went crazy
i have friends who served time for meth, people who turned to dealing after succumbing to addiction, and our prisons are full of them, but the people who pushed pain pills seem to continue to evade criminal prosecution
