Is there really a prescription drug crisis in this nation?
Think about it before you answer because the truth may be a lot different than you have been led to believe.
In one news article they state that 12 million people are taking prescription pain medications does that constitute a crisis?
Considering the population of the United States…
318.9 million As of 2014 and lets face it there are more than that in this nation right now…
Lets see, is that half the population?
Well no its not…
Then what is a crisis, then?
Ten Percent of the population?
Again, thats 31 million people so lets look a little closer at this crisis, shall we?
Ok, then lets say 5 percent of the population of the US…
Again thats 15 Million…
So, lets get this into perspective, were talking about less than 5 percent of the population right?
Unless were just bad at math then Yes, thats accurate, so of that 5 percent how many people are abusing prescription medications?
Apparently for some people they think that everyone taking prescription medication for pain is an abuser because that is what you would have to do to say that there is a problem but that is still not a crisis.
Why is this happening?
Back many years ago there was a big problem with opiate abuse.
They smoked it, they had Dens where they would supply it to anyone that came into the place sort of like we do in bars these days.
You just walk in and you can get quietly drunk and then go out and drive your car or get into trouble in many other ways.
Sure it was a problem when they had bars that served opium but that was a long time ago.
So, why is this happening again?
Mostly its an imaginary war that they can win…
They created this fake crisis, they talk about it and they even created treatment programs for anyone that takes this medication, now they are criminalizing it.
What if someone told you that only 1 percent of people are actually abusing the medication would you think that would constitute a crisis?
If you think that is true then you probably need some help…
Fortunately there is a rehab treatment type corporation that is standing by waiting to treat you for your problem…
Sounds crazy right?
