Gringal, Chris Hedges' latest book, America: The Farewell Tour, does, in part, look at the current opoid crisis and the role the pharmaceutical companies played in it's creation. I'm only a third the way through but based on what I've read thus far, I recommend it.

Along those same lines I would recommend Dreamland: The True Tale of America's Opiate Epidemic by Sam Quinones. Big pharma, their lobbyists, our legislators and Mexican drug syndicates all have very dirty hands.

It seems what goes around comes around. Didn’t the British do something similar to China. I wouldn’t be surprised if China was a hidden avenging angel in all this.

Doctors also have a hand in this. It got to be very easy (and quick) to fork over a prescription rather than take the time to deal with the real issues. Back in the late ‘60’s and early ‘70’s when I was battling booze I was always handed prescriptions from Thorazine to every kind of tranquilizer and anti-depressant on the market. Luckily I never filled them. Booze was easier until it wasn’t but I’m forever grateful I never wanted legal or illegal drugs.

Even here, doctors over prescribe drugs. When I had disk surgery last February, the doctor prescribed some heavy duty stuff which left me in a state of zombieism. I quit long before the drugs ran out, from self-preservation.
