and should face thousands of murder charges, but sadly, won’t.
Where is the list of doctors he paid to prescribe these poison pills? They should certainly be arrested and tried as accessories.
Where I live, one pain doctor lost his DEA number and can no longer prescribe narcotics. He was the go to guy for prescription drugs. His waiting room was an assembly line and constantly full of patients. After he went away another group took over. They were arrested, tried, and convicted. I have no doubt another doctor will take their place. There is too much money involved.
60,000 deaths from overdoses last year!!!
Who pays the bills for this crap? As if I don’t know.
We do since barky care covers this for the people who are on the dole.

Our government = pure corruption.
Trump is the only candidate for President who brought this crisis into full light. God bless him.
An excellently written story in Fortune gives details on the opiod crisis and points to zealous pushing of drug purchases by McKesson, the biggest drug wholesaler in the US.

This story appeared in June 2017, long after Trump raised the alarm in 2016. But why was such a story not covered much earlier. It shows you how journalists are thoroughly out of touch with what's going in real America.
Woodward and Bernstein be damned! The MAGA movement should award an anti-Pulitzer prize to the Fake Media for important stories not told -- or stories covered up!
60,000 deaths is probably tip of the iceberg.
Imagine how many people are still living, but whose lives have been utterly destroyed by their addiction to powerful drugs.
