    Almost 20 years into the opioid epidemic, there finally is evidence of significant and continual decreases in the abuse of these risky pain medications, according to an analysis of national data being presented at the ANESTHESIOLOGY 2020 annual meeting. The rate of prescription opioids fell 26% between 2007 and 2018, according to the researchers' analysis of the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, an annual survey of about 70,000 Americans age 12 and older asking about their use of tobacco, alcohol and drugs.

    Cathy Smith, the onetime girlfriend of singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot who might have been best remembered for inspiring the hit song “Sundown” had she not met up with John Belushi at the Chateau Marmont on March 5, 1982, died Aug. 18 at the age of 73. Her death was reported by Canada’s The Globe and Mail. The longtime resident of Maple Ridge, British Columbia, had been on oxygen and in failing health the past few years, the newspaper said. Smith, who had been a back-up singer (and occasional drug supplier) to the Canadian rockers who would later become The Band (she...

    New York Times national political correspondent Jonathan Martin tweeted Thursday that presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden's recent stumbles have unsettled party officials and left them "thrilled there is no real public campaign." Biden raised eyebrows twice this week over remarks during an interview that aired at the convention of the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists. In a preview clip released Wednesday, the former vice president snapped at CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett over a question about whether he had taken a cognitive test, comparing it to asking Barnett to "take a test where you're...

    Imagine an angry President Trump asking a black journalist if he's a "junkie." Now imagine the liberal media's Breaking News, 24/7 coverage of the incident, complete with calls for his resignation, cries about racist stereotyping, etc. Who knows: the MSM might even have managed to spark a new round of riots. But it wasn't President Trump who had made the insulting suggestion. Rather, an angry Joe Biden yesterday asked a black journalist if he were a "junkie," after imagining him being subjected to a test for "cocaine." So, naturally, the opening hour of MSNBC's Morning Joe, and CNN's New Day...

    Wait? Huh? WTF is happening here? Barnett was not off-base asking this question, as Biden’s mental sharpness has been in question lately, too. Seriously look at this (Video): Joe Biden Gaffes & Bloopers It was Biden that gave us such hits as, “You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.” and “No man has the right to raise their hand to a woman in anger...we have to change the culture. So we just have to keep punching at it and punching at it and punching at it.” And my favorite, “I...

    Former vice president Joe Biden tore into an innocent reporter who respectfully asked if the presumptive sufferer of dementia had taken a cognitive test, telling the terrified journalist that asking the question was similar to asking the interviewer if he was using cocaine. “No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man,” Biden yelled. “That’s like saying to you, before you got on this program if you had taken a test were you taking cocaine or not. What do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?” he asked. The CBS reporter attempted...

    In an attempt on Wednesday to again protect their presidential candidate from himself, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News spiked an interview Joe Biden did the National Association for Black and Hispanic Journalists. In the controversial video, Biden snapped at black CBS correspondent Errol Barnett (who asked about Biden’s mental fitness) and demanded to know, “Are you a junkie?!” Biden’s racist comment was played unedited earlier in the day during CBS This Morning. But as the controversy grew, political correspondent Ed O’Keefe continued his weeks-long efforts to protect and promote Biden by suggesting the junkie comment was directed...

    Joe Biden is pushing back at Republican assertions that he should take a cognitive test to disprove President Donald Trump’s claim that the Democrat isn’t fit for the Oval Office. Biden grew testy when CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett asked the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee about the matter in a recent interview. “No, I haven’t taken a test? Why the hell would I take a test?” Biden said.

    Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden shrugged off a question Tuesday about taking a cognitive assessment test, which President Trump has challenged him to do — while misrepresenting what the test measures. Joe Biden was asked by Errol Barnett of CBS News if he’d taken a cognitive test during an interview this morning. A flustered Biden responded by asking the black reporter if he’s a junkie. Biden also pulled out his signature “C’mon man” comment used to express outrage at anyone asking a question he won’t answer. In an exchange with CBS’s Errol Barnett during a wide-ranging, multi-moderator interview at a...

    WASHINGTON — Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden shrugged off a question Tuesday about taking a cognitive assessment test, which President Trump has challenged him to do — while misrepresenting what the test measures. In an exchange with CBS’s Errol Barnett during a wide-ranging, multi-moderator interview at a conference of Black and Latino journalists, Biden balked at Barnett’s question about whether Biden had even taken an exam.“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?” responded Biden, who then posed a rhetorical analogy.“C’mon man,” he chided Barnett. “That’s like saying, ‘You — before you got on this program...

    We wrote about a recent burglary in Des Moines in which a Des Moines store owner arrived at his business, only to find Amund Benjamin Haarstad in the process of relieving him of some of his inventory. The store owner shot and killed Haarstad. Now, as happens so often these situations . . . Family members of a man slain in an apparent burglary attempt said he never should have been shot and killed, admitting wrongdoing by both parties involved. The fatal shooting happened just after 7:15 a.m. Wednesday at Kraft Imports and 5 Star Muffler in the 1400...

    So Raging Bull is now raging around like some old sinewy chicken on a free range because he is set out to pasture and doesn't like it. What does he do? Does he say, "Strong like BULL!"? No. If anything he says, "Strong like CHICKEN!" And he raises his stringy arms like he is lifting air weights. I think Raging Bull lost his mind and manliness in that House of the Thespian Arts. He is called to lend support for a cowardly fairy tale. The world is not the stage where you can see unicorns and Messiahs fly around. He...

    Tom Petty's Autopsy: Singer Died From Massive Accidental Drug Overdose Tom Petty's autopsy results are in, and they show the singer died from an accidental drug overdose as a result of taking a variety of medications. The L.A. County Coroner says a number of Tom's organs failed due to "mixed drug toxicity." Tom's autopsy report shows the singer was on several pain meds, including Fentanyl patches, oxycodone (Oxycontin), temazepam (Restoril), alprazolam (Xanax), citalopram (Celexa), acetyl fentanyl and despropionyl fentanyl. The reason doctors prescribed the meds was because of a number of medical problems, including emphysema, knee problems and a fractured...

    When my mother struggled with cancer, her appetite dropped to nothing. In my state, medical marijuana is legal, so the doctor prescribed it to help her appetite. To say it worked would be an understatement. Within a couple of days she was eating normal amounts and felt hunger for the first time in a week. With the drug, she was able to maintain her weight and strength. She stayed with me during her treatment but went home to dad some as well. On one of her trips home to dad, she ran out of the medical marijuana and went to...
  • Drug dealers didn't kill Philip Seymour Hoffman -- Hoffman did

    New York Police officers arrested four men Tuesday night on suspicion of having a connection to drugs. Police acted after receiving a tip that the four had sold heroin to actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was found dead from an overdose of the drug on February 2. Drug dealers are far from my favorite people, and the arrests are welcome, but no drug dealer killed Philip Hoffman. Only one person is, ultimately, responsible for his death: Philip Seymour Hoffman, himself. Mr. Hoffman was the one who procured the drug, injected the drug and kept injecting the drug. Mr. Hoffman was...
