4 episodes in, really interesting take on Big Pharma and opiates

And great cast.

Re: 4 episodes in, really interesting take on Big Pharma and opiates

More people should watch this. The story of how these drugs came to take over America needs to be known.

Hell yeah.

What's disturbing is how normal people got prescribed this poison, and then got cut off cold turkey with out providing counseling services to ween them off properly and next thing you know they are shooting up heroin. These doctors on the payroll of big pharma are no better then drug dealers.

Lol

Yes, I wasn't fully aware of that, tbqh, and Dopesick shows that process pretty clearly. Scary.

In cases of extreme pain meds like this are needed though. In the UK, there's a strong aversion to their prescription due to the risk of addiction.

The dosage should be tapered down too to avoid major withdrawal effects.

I move away from the mic to breathe in

And yet the sheep follow the law and their doctors instead of getting what they actually need.

Greed is the deadliest design of mankind.

Drugs are what run the world and I don't see a solution.
