  2. Steve: do you know if the Rx drug overdoses is those who ODd on drugs that were prescribed for them, or just folks who got meds from any old place? Also, do you know if the drug OD numbers are actual deaths, or are the CDC’s cute little “he died with 5 drugs in system so therefore he died 5 times” scam?

    Wow. Medical errors killed an order of magnitude more people than all drug ODs…where’s the screaming about the “Medical Error Epidemic”??

    The suicide #s are going to skyrocket among CPPs (already started) but I’m sure there will be no screaming about that “epidemic”…they’ll probably be folded into the “drug deaths” as further proof that they must fight the “drug epidemic” even harder. it still astounds me that the morons are continuing the “it’s not working at all so we must do it even harder” in their make-believe opioid crisis. and pisses me off to dangerous levels.
