!! OMG, WATCH: John Oliver takes on America’s opioid addiction !!

Did you know that over more than 2.6 million Americans were addicted to opioids in 2015?

“These pills are getting used or falling into the hands of others – from those who are already addicted to just bored teenagers.” says Oliver.

“A nuanced discussion between the medical community about the complexities of brain treatment is clearly important. [The] problem is: that discussion became dominated by the pharmaceutical industry, who started amplifying the message that opioids should not just be used for acute pain — from that of cancer or surgery — but all sorts of pain, like arthritis and backaches.”

“One of Purdue’s doctors in charge of marketing the drug, said that the problem with the perception that people are addicted is that it’s just “relief seeking behavior mistaken as drug addiction.”

“Wow, that is so convenient. That is like Chipotle going, ‘Have you heard of this fascinating new thing called pseudo-diarrhea? It looks a lot like diarrhea but it’s not diarrhea and the cure may actually be more tacos.”

Thoughts? Do you know someone who’s been hooked on the prescriptions?
