Drug abuse is now the ‘norm’ for youths & proudly flaunted. If you don’t take drugs, you aren’t ready to be ‘accepted’ yet and perceived as the ‘odd one’ out. Perhaps we check out the full-term effects of these so called ‘pleasure’ drugs.
1. #Marijuana a.k.a Mary Jane, Kush, Pot, ‘Eja’, Cannabis, Blaze, Ganja, etc, composed of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Effects include: paranoia, memory loss, inability to focus, hallucinations, panic attacks etc.
Hardened smokers will tell you it’s ‘medicinal’🤡🤡.

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.

Data from the Drug Enforcement Agency’s Automation of Reports and Consolidated Orders System (ARCOS) became publicly available from the @washingtonpost. The database tracks every legally sold #opioid pill in the US from manufacture to distribution. #opioidcrisis #painmanagement
The @Washingtonpost analyzed data & looked specifically at hydrocodone (the opioid in Vicodin) and oxycodone (the opioid in Percocet & OxyContin) between 2006-2012.
These opioids alone made up 75% of the total opioids shipped during this period and accounted for 76 BILLION pills. #oxycodone #hydrocodone @JeromeAdamsMD

I'm sorry, the 'what' crisis/epidemic? The #OpioidCrisis?! No. How about alcohol? No, wait. Too many ppl think drinking is ok even though it kills over 3 MILLION ppl a year & has a hand in murder, rape, domestic/child abuse, horrific accidents & Prohibition didn't work. (Cont)
What about tobacco! We sued the hell outta them, yeah! Taught 'em a GOOD lesson. But, wait. Ppl can still buy tobacco products practically everywhere & uh oh, the money from the suit is running out. Big Government needs more dough. I know... Let's go after pain medication! (Cont)
Even though the vast majority of ppl who really need & use it do so responsibly & their addiction rate is less than 1%, since we can't get the cartels killing everyone with #illicitfentanyl and #heroin will hit the low hanging fruit. Doctors & pharmaceutical companies. (Cont)

I’ve been drinking since I got home from work. Today I held the hand of a 35 year old #heroin addict & mother of two as she left this earth to hopefully find peace on the other side. I spent hours trying to locate her family. When I did locate them I wish I had not...
I’ll call her Jane. Her brother kept asking me about her car, which I have no idea where it is. Her mother told me she couldn’t afford to bury her & wouldn’t claim the body regardless of my assurances that she’s not responsible. Me & her bedside nurse are at her side as she dies.
I’ve been a nurse 22 yrs. I’ve been here before. In the room to hold her hand as she dies; out of the room to take a call because I’m still responsible for half the hospital. Bedside nurse has been here 6 months but she’s not green to this unfortunately. We’re both pissed...
