It is time for the companies who manufacture Oxycontin and other opiates to take responsibility for the unintended effects these drugs are having. Heavy opiates, prescribed to ease pain of surgery or accidents are taking a huge toll on our children – our sisters and brothers, mothers and fathers.
Every day we can read a news story about the tragic effects of these highly addictive painkillers. The FDA is supposed to protect us, but the fact is that these drugs kill approximately 200,000 people a year in the U.S. alone, more than four times our total losses in the Vietnam War..
So what can we do about it?
We can start by collecting the facts. Call every drug treatment center in your area and ask what percentage of their clients are addicted to painkillers like OxyContin. If you work in the treatment industry and already know the answer, then document your information and send it to the FDA and demand responsible controls.
These drugs aren’t made in illegal labs, like methamphetamines. They are made by licensed pharmaceutical firms who know exactly how much they are making and must know that they are the suppliers for the tens of millions of dollars in street sales as well as for the “legitimate” medical outlets.
It’s time to tell the truth about these drugs; it’s time to look this dragon square in the eye because unless we are willing to look at it, we will never slay it.
