    Not just doctors but also dentists abuse opioid prescriptions; dentists perform unnecessary and/or health damaging procedures that result in enormous pain, knowing they can get away with doing this by prescribing Oxycontin for months afterwards, to mask the damage done to their patients.

    Big pharmaceutical companies is the reason why cannabis is federally illegal.

    Every doctor absolutely knew, just as they know every time they still prescribe these drugs. People act like it’s debatable because they don’t want to loose access to their drug of choice. Its as easy as wining to a doctor, and insisting they “actually” need them to anybody who knows they get them, then lying that they don’t do “drugs” to everybody else. I am all about taking anything and everything one needs to get through this misery, but I can’t stand two face liars that make getting drugs difficult and dangerous and stigmatized for the rest of us… While there underhandedly high as a kite, legally. On the same fucking drugs that resulted in millions of deaths. Meanwhile people in Utah are still doing time for smoking pot while camping.

    I live in New Zealand, and while I don’t watch network TV, I’ve pretty much never seen ads for prescription drugs.

    I am sick of this discussion. Just because people take opioids responsibly (since 2007 btw), and, thankfully, have had doctors who NEVER over prescribed it. Some people really are in chronic pain and are responsible.

    Let’s not forget overdoses because of Crystal Meth. I personally know people that overdosed on Crystal Meth.
    Let’s also not forget J&J knew about Talcum Powder decades ago and many women died from Ovarian cancer. Then people still trusted J&J Covid-19 vaccine. J&J had to pay for lawsuits for Opioid crises. J&J applied for Bankruptcy in order to not pay for victims of Talcum-Powder and J&J Baby-Powder and Shower.

    “People don’t know” always means “I didn’t know” even if it’s Bill Maher. People don’t know the Iron Law of Prohibition: posits that as law enforcement becomes more intense, the potency of prohibited substances increases. or “the harder the enforcement, the harder the drugs.” This is why fentanyl has found such a stronghold since America and her legislators started regulating opioids. For example, the C.U.R.E.S. act, or whatever your state calls it. Why else should it be that the “crisis” has become worse since the campaign to raise awareness and decrease the availability has become so great?

    They didn’t say it isn’t addictive. They said it’s less addictive, also a lie but very different. I won’t defend the Sacklers actions but the premise that the “opioid crisis” was caused by them is complete propaganda and they had to plea because no one can possibly defend themselves against the entire greedy U.S. AGs at once. No one.

    Very few pain patients become addicted and the addiction rate overall has not changed significantly through the decades. What has changed is the rate of deaths. The overwhelming majority of those dying are not and never were pain patients. The “crisis” is the toxic drug supply in the black market which is driven by drug prohibition policies and the greedy quest for money and power in the United States.

    People aren’t dying from Rx drugs. They are dying from illicit fentanyl laced drugs, ie. fake pills, cocaine, heroin, and God knows what else purposely spiked and/or contaminated with illicit fentanyl and other toxic adulterants. Let’s get real here. While some of the deaths are due to willful poly-drug use, many of these deaths are not overdoses, they are poisonings. Many were told they were buying one drug and were sold another more potent or a toxic mixture.

    Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is driven by behavior, not the substance abused. Those with this disorder will not stop because the drug is no longer readily available or no longer pure. There will always be another substance to abuse for those unfortunate people. I would also argue some of the people who died from the illicit drugs were not even addicted but simply recreational users who thought they were buying from a reputable source. The majority of these users would likely be alive today if they were sold what they thought they were being sold, in other words, known potency such as real regulated pharmaceutical drugs. Known potency is crucial if you want to save lives.

    Anyone who peddles any other narrative other than toxic drug supply on the street causing the majority of the deaths is contributing to the deaths of not only people with use disorder but also patients who are being denied pain control because contrary to what many people think, severe intractable pain can and does kill…and no, I’m not being paid by pharma or anyone else. I’m simply a patient fighting for other patients who have exhausted all other alternatives to have reasonable access to pain medications. These patients aren’t asking for zero pain, although wouldn’t that be nice if that were possible? For most, that’s not possible and most people know that and accept it. People who have exhausted all other alternatives are simply asking for medication to take the edge off and allow them to function and have some quality of life but they are being denied access to these medications due to anti-opioid zealots who have gained political control. Even cancer and hospice patients are being denied pain meds because of the false narrative being pushed. I would urge people to do their own research. You’ll see the data does not support the false narrative that these deaths were driven by pharma. Deaths sky-rocketed while prescribing dropped to levels not seen since below the 1990’s. Wake up people. This is not and never was an Rx crisis.

    It was addictive because it creates horrible rebound pain so people take another one to get rid of the rebound pain ad infinitum.

    It’s amazing since this goes on YouTube they cut the last part of the interview where Bill links the identical situations of opioids being pushed and people lied to with potentially the same situation with COVID-19 vaxx. Wtf is wrong with everyone . Wake up!
