Here we have the truth as we knew it to be so. The End
A heroin “epidemic” is gripping the United States, where cheap supply has helped push the number of users to a 20-year high, increasing drug-related deaths, the United Nations said on Thursday.
Notice that this is NOT an epidemic of “prescription opioids”. It seems very wrong to conflate the number of heroin users and overdoses with prescription drug users.
As was obvious to pain patients who wouldn’t even know where to find heroin, prescriptions drug abusers find heroin just as attractive.
The media combines illegal heroin with legal prescriptions to create astonishing numbers due to “opioids” because they are in the same drug class, but the uses of these two substances are completely different.
