National Opioid Epidemic

Everyday another state governor or AG is making laws or funds available to fight the nationally recognized opioid epidemic.

While their efforts are meant with the best of intentions, the core problem has yet to be publicized or dealt with; prescriptions.

Many attorneys generals have filed lawsuits against drug manufacturers.  However, the problem is not supply.  Supply is created to meet demand.  If opioid prescriptions were not being handed out like candy to kids in school, the problem would not exist.

The medical profession is the root of this problem.  They need to held accountable.  They need to justify prescribing such drugs and enhanced monitoring of these types of prescriptions need to be seriously scrutinized and monitored.

These drugs are highly addictive, stated by many addicts to be more powerful than heroin.

As a nobody, whom is a vegetarian and does not consume alcohol, I take my health serious, but I have been greatly effected by others close to be that were good people, but destroyed lives due to prescriptions.

Laws and funds are being created to deal with the issue.  However, the most important issue is to either (1) stop the manufacturing of such a dangerous drug if society cannot responsible prescribe and take the medications (2) hold the medical profession accountable.

American has a declining life expectancy, out of control rising health care cost, increase in suicide, and opioid is a significant contributor to these issues.  Additionally, it is blamed for the increase in heroin use after patients can no longer access opioids or they even purchase opioids illegally thinking that its a prescription, so there is no violation of any law.  Buying opioids from an individual is illegal and one can be prosecuted for such activity.

For example; Arizona Governor recently called an emergency session requesting immediate action to deal with this issue.  Read more.

Health Care & Politics – Why?

July 30, 2017 – Have you every wondered why the legal profession and the health care professions appear to control the world?  Well, they do!

Politicians have been attempting to sort out how to provide Americans with affordable health care.  In my humble opinion, it will never happen because they are in the same group.  They protect each other and their turf.

The insurance industry is blamed for the cost of health care, but keep in mind that insurance is a pass-through product.  Meaning, the insurance companies pays claims and passes that cost onto other individual insureds.

There have many many insurance companies that provided health insurance that have gone broke due to the out-of-control health care cost that began in the 80’s.

Previously, insurance companies sold policies that were scheduled.  Meaning, they stated in the policy what they would pay on each particlular health care expense limiting the health providers ability to markup the cost beyond the ability of the insured to pay the remaining balance.

Laws were passed that limits the liability that health care providers are exposed to in a lawsuit.  Why?  If a doctor or hospital permanently damages you for their errors, why should there be a limit on what they owe you?

There has been a change in society and the lawmakers objectives.  Politicans used to protect citizens from themselves, now they profit from us and their highly educated partners, medical professionals are protected as well.

Doctors are protected from prosecution if they use drugs, they are protected from lawsuits that might affect their ability to pay, they are granted the right to private car license plates and more.

America’s life expectancy declined last year, but there is more health care than every before.  Why did life expectancy go down?  Could it be that the medical profession is over-treating and performing malpractice that goes unaccountable because the law protects them?

The highly educated legal and medical professions will never allow the truth to surface.  They will only figure out ways to profit even more from the everyday hard working society that has been rode so hard they turn their eyes to the reality of life.

Gambling is legal now, as is drug use to the point that the majority of Americans have either a gambling problem, prescription drug problem, or alcohol problem and who benefits from it?

AGs around the country are attacking the drug companies, blaming them for America’s dependency on prescription pain pills, but who prescribes the pills to American’s?  Doctors!

There are dozens of medical uses for cannabis, but it is still illegal in most states.  Why?  Is it because the drug companies are trying to figure out how to control something that they have lacked the ability to control so it is still illegal because the lawmakers are protecting the medical profession?

There are so many questions that their answers don’t make sense to the average American.

In a press release published on STL.News about Cannabis, it discusses that cannabis is even recognized as treatment for Alzheimer’s.  STL.News has multiple press release about the topic of Cannabis.  The government and various states are coming around, but why did it take so long.
