Last minute update:
Yesterday, as I was drafting this, federal officials arrested six former employees of a drug company for flat-out bribing some doctors to overprescribe fentanyl, which is 40-50x stronger than heroin, the cause of many opioid deaths.
As I’ve said in other posts, this is a complicated subject so don’t jump to conclusions until you’ve read it.
Yesterday, in Opioids. Alarm, and I mean YOU, I posted about how dreadful and drastic the opioids problem has gotten, citing (as just one example) a small high school in Maine where five percent of kids have been dying in every class. Think of how many were in your graduating class, and imagine 1/20th of them dying before graduation.
