Politicians always have good speeches but it’s the end product that counts, in this case it shows only to have gotten worse. They have to stop the flow!
Now it’s New York Attorney General Letitia James taking another political stab at the same old problem - drug abuse - as seen in the front page article on January 25 edition of the Democrat.
It’s not just corporate greed to blame but greed by some crooked doctors, patients abusing the product and all the money that goes around as ‘it’s always about the money’!
If you take medication/opioids and go by the directions of a real doctor then you probably won't become addicted, but if you start taking more than you're told to that creates the addiction. If the medication is not working get back to your doctor. They may change it, don’t add yourself.
Addiction is also fueled by 'Black market' greed. Attorney General James has had three years and the problem got worse!
$1.7 million is not a lot of money to go around, around her speech maybe, but not a lot to do much when spread out like she says.
Back in the late 1960s and 70s there were a lot of drugstore break-ins with the theft of many kinds of 'illegally used' drugs though they are legal.
Nothing will change until the 'illegal' trade is stopped and they re-examine how doctors operate.
No one says they want to grow up to be a drug addict, but it keeps happening. Stop the flow! The point is that they've been trying to do that since the 1960s and just let it keep coming! Over 60 years and they can’t stop it? Maybe government doesn’t want to stop it!
All I hear and see here is a cloud of smoke making itself look like a white cloud but it's still smoke.
