2012 column by leading pain expert B Eliot Cole, MD, MPA, warned that "radical changes" proposed by a group calling itself #PROP would deny #opioids "to the majority of patients now receiving them for noncancer pain." / thread…
In the early 2000s, "buoyed by the success of treating cancer-related pain with #opioids, many physicians rose to the challenge of doing more for their patients suffering with #ChronicPain," Cole wrote.
"This led to an increase in the number of prescriptions for #opioids, which had the unintended consequence of more opioids ending up in medicine cabinets in more homes, ultimately giving more people (🚩not patients) access to these valuable medications for nonmedical purposes."

Want a feel for how extensive, entrenched and structured the hatred in America is for our tens of millions of drug users? Take this #ThoughtExperiment with me....

IMAGINE for a moment that you woke up tomorrow to the news that the entire retail #alcohol supply in the #US was randomly contaminated with deadly levels of #fentanyl. A one ounce shot could put you into respiratory arrest in 120 seconds, quickly followed by cardiac arrest.

The proper administration of #NARCAN within minutes or #RescueBreathing is your only hope for survival; #911 and #EMS can’t get there that fast.

Now IMAGINE for a moment what the governmental and civil society response would be to this news...

Thanks @UTMBFamilyMed for inviting me to present Grand Rounds today! I'm going to share a few pearls for other interested folks in #FamilyMedicine, #TwitteRx, & beyond.

A long but extremely visual🧵🧵🧵
To understand the "opioid crisis", you have to accept that the first wave was driven by excessive prescribing. BUT you also have to accept that reactionary supply reduction interventions drove a totally preventable second wave of deaths due to heroin.
In order to help the people who are actually dying today, you must recognize that deaths to Rx opioids accounted for fewer than ⅓ of all opioid overdose deaths, and that proportion is shrinking every year.

#GeorgeFloyd: How Can Two #AutopsyReports Be So Different?

I called the Minnesota Health Department for some answers.

On June 1st 2 medical examiners issued an autopsy. 🤔 They are very different!


#MedicalExaminer found underlying health conditions (even though those didn't seem to count with #Covid19) They also found #fentanyl & #amphetamines.

Was he set up? Was he part of a money-laundering scheme? Why is the narrative shirking off the fact they knew each other?
Why is it that #MichaelBaden, who was involved w/ #Epstein, #EricGarner's case (who also said 'I can't breathe' 11x), findings differ so?

"Homicide caused by asphyxia due to neck and back compression that led to a lack of blood flow to the brain,"

More whites than blacks killed by police in US

Black cop more likely to kill black than white cop

Considering VASTLY higher level of armed violent & lethal crime carried carried out by blacks are FEWER blacks killed by police even pro rata

3. #FFS #BBCNews @BBC

More whites are killed by blacks than blacks by whites

Most blacks are killed by fellow blacks

So stop spreading #BLM spin lies & propaganda

The MEDICAL use of #fentanyl is different from the #Illegal use of #Chinese or #Mexican fentanyl, 4 grains of which the size of salt are deadly. Often found in HEROIN, illegal fentanyl is so deadly police officers are now required to wear gloves at traffic stops when drugs
2/ or white powder is found in the vehicle. Even INHALING near fentanyl can be deadly. Conflating the ethical medical use of fentanyl & the #Illegal use of heroin cut with fentanyl is deceptive. 96% of ALL #opioid overdoses are from heroin. That leaves 4% due to Rx, many of which
3/ are VALID uses for chronic pain which are not alleviated by other treatments. Encouraging #cannibis grown today to treat pain is a disaster in the making. The THC levels are 3x what it was in the 60’s. Colorado ER physicians are so well versed in the uniquely cannibis-

“The jail is the largest mental health institution in any community,” Sheriff Daron Hall said.

The #OpioidCrisis has thrust the most pressing issue facing jails around the country to the forefront: #MentalIllness. (Thread👇)…
On any given day, there are about 750,000 people in jails across America.

Drug addiction and mental health-related issues are often coexisting and it’s difficult to parse out which is driving which.
Hall said the deinstitutionalization of #MentalHealth hospitals that started in the 1960s hasn’t worked and instead has sparked today’s problem.

“The reality is we didn’t really deinstitutionalize it, we just re-institutionalized it into jails and prisons,” he said.

Anniversary take on #Fentanyl, homeland security and 1 year of the STOP Act.
Few of us have been untouched by the opiod epidemic. Fentanyl, a synthetic drug, represents the 3rd wave of this American nightmare, coming after prescription painkillers and heroin. It is killing us.1/
Why are so many security experts involved with the fentanyl issue? It is personal, but it is also professional. For fentanyl, there is a supply and there is a demand. The demand side is a public health and addiction challenge. The supply side is a security challenge. 2/
Fentanyl is, in many ways, a typical supply chain issue, no different than aviation or cargo: a threat is entering the country and we must disrupt the chain, close the vulnerability. Fentanyl is mostly manufactured in China & Russia and getting here through the postal service.3/

Docs you all write brilliant articles, but unless they're affected people don't read them.

PLEASE watch this 2 min video, this is URGENT! There are articles attached to prove this is critical. This can affect every #American. People are needlessly dying, We need your #Help
Almost 6 decades ago the UN addressed the under-treatment of pain, despite narcotic pain relief many people around the world suffer needlessly. In 1961 we recognized the undertreatment of #pain is a #HumanRights abuse. #RNC & #DNC are you listening?…
The #DEA is arguably waging a war against the weakest members of society These are #HumanRights abuses! #Trump Administration you think #KidsInCages was bad!

Plz, use the link in the article to let the DEA know what you think about more cuts to supplies…

“The Chinese miracle is over.”

In a wide-ranging conversation, top radio talk show hosts and senior @EpochTimes staff provided context to an audience of media professionals about some of the most important headlines regarding #China.…
John @batchelorshow, a talk show host on WABC in New York, said the #TradeWar has highlighted how “China’s business model is broken.”

US #Tariffs have taught companies they can move their supply chains out of #China, without being subject to unfair trade practices.
@batchelorshow Tom @sullivanradio of #TalkMedia Network said he’s spoken with #Farmers and residents in the heartland states most affected by #China’s retaliatory #Tariffs on US #Agricultural products; they support President Trump tackling the #Chinese regime’s trade policies.

And we're back: #6ix9ine trial continues with #NYPD "Criminalist 3" on the stand @SDNYLIVE. Earlier today, Kristian Cruz disputed it was his Instagram account communicating with Nuke Mack. Thread
@sdnylive @MatthewLeeICP @revolttv @XXL @Power106LA The NYPD lab tech is testifying about scales and grinders and confirming the presence of #fentanyl (yesterday we posted the photos of DHL envelope from Shenzhen, China to Kristian Cruz, the sometimes "IGotRich_" on Instagram)
@sdnylive @MatthewLeeICP @revolttv @XXL @Power106LA Judge Engelmayer getting more and more frustrated. Tells NYPD tech, You're not here to read this document, just to say if it jogs you memory.

Production has doubled since the '09' figures in this piece. It gets the basics right, that #Heroin lit the US opiate epidemic. #BigPharma Rx was kindling. #Fentanyl the accelerant. But it was bulk heroin that was the cause.…
The true story has been so successfully suppressed, it must be via some degree of quasi-official connivance? By seizing & reporting only on Mexican-border trafficking, they're able to propagate the official lie, that Afghan #heroin doesn't make it to USA! Lol.
CDC figures show the #epidemiology of the #heroin epidemic, began in Midwest, NorthEast, 2007-10 & spread out. #Afghan 'white' powder from the 'Great White North', -not- the desultory flow of Mexican 'brown' from South America.

(1) Why does @POTUS keep referring to the Alabama tweet insisting he was right? We know he is right and we know #MSM is junk and #fakenews. What is the message? Learn the comms. #QAnon #QAnonNotables
(2) Maersk Alabama is a cargo ship owned by #Maersk Lines. It was named Maersk Alabama from 2004 - 2015. It was hijacked by Somali pirates in April of 2009. The ship was advised to stay 600 nautical miles off the coast, but instead was attacked 240 nautical miles off the coast.
(3) "Approximately half of the crewmembers, represented by Brian Beckcom, are claiming that the shipping company, Maersk Lines Limited, willfully allowed the Maersk Alabama to sail directly into pirate-infested waters despite receiving multiple warnings to avoid the area."

If we have to go the distance, then we go. We can’t continue allowing China to rip us off & we do nothing. I’m sure some liberal American politician is telling the Chinese to wait it out as Trump will be out in 2020. That is a disservice to our country. As for Shep he’s an idiot.
Shep wants the Chinese to win so he only discuss the gloom and doom.

Selection by @POTUS to select Bill Bar as the next attorney general is "a continuation of this law and order presidency," says acting Attorney General @MattWhitaker46.
Barr demonstrated "an unwavering adherence to the rule of law" in his previous tenure as attorney general, says @POTUS in Kansas City speech to law enforcement, saying his intended nominee deserves bipartisan support.
In speech to law enforcement, commenting on congressional races, @POTUS sometimes you choose someone for a position that you think is going to be really good and "they choke like dogs."
