The real problem are the doctors I'd say. It's not like the pharma companies are pushing this on your door. And there are circumstances under which nothing but opiods helps.
If doctors wouldn't be so lazy and incompetent they'd prescribe the appropriate medicine for the cause and not just the one pain killer they can remember.
I told my doctor that anti-depressions have a negative affect on me, I mentioned that I was suicidal at times, I advised him that when I smoked pot (legal medically in my state) it fixed my anxiety, treated my ptsd, and did not make me feel suicidal. He replied I am not going to prescribe it to you it is too much work. I have more than 2 of the conditions acceptable for receiving it. Now if the pot salespeople were able to pay "spiffs" on prescriptions like big pharma I would have my script. This was the 3rd doctor to not prescribe but was aware of my conditions. Rockapharma snake oil is the most unreported upon health crisis in this nation.
