Drug firms poured 780 million painkillers into WV amid rise of overdoses

 

In six years, drug wholesalers showered the state with 780 million hydrocodone and oxycodone pills, while 1,728 West Virginians fatally overdosed on those two painkillers

 

The unfettered shipments amount to 433 pain pills for every man, woman and child in West Virginia.

 

“These numbers will shake even the most cynical observer,” said former Delegate Don Perdue, D-Wayne, a retired pharmacist who finished his term earlier this month. “Distributors have fed their greed on human frailties and to criminal effect. There is no excuse and should be no forgiveness.”

 

“It starts with the doctor writing, the pharmacist filling and the wholesaler distributing. They're all three in bed together,” said Sam Suppa, a retired Charleston pharmacist who spent 60 years working at retail pharmacies in West Virginia. “The distributors knew what was going on. They just didn't care.”

 

As the fatalities mounted — hydrocodone and oxycodone overdose deaths increased 67 percent in West Virginia between 2007 and 2012 — the drug shippers' CEOs collected salaries and bonuses in the tens of millions of dollars. Their companies made billions. McKesson has grown into the fifth-largest corporation in America. The drug distributor's CEO was the nation's highest-paid executive in 2012, according to Forbes.

Heroin now kills more people than guns: Drugs overdoses claimed 50,000 lives in the US last year 
  • The number of heroin deaths rose 23% to 12,989, more than gun homicides
  • Fentanyl - a synthetic opiate - claimed 16,000 lives, equivalent to 44 per day
  • Heroin claimed the life of Hollywood actor Philip Seymour Hoffman in 2014 
  • But the majority of those killed are ordinary people in smalltown America

Fentanyl - everything you need to know

 

Fentanyl is a schedule two narcotic controlled substance, and is the most potent opiate available for medical or veterinary use. It’s an analgesic and an anesthetic, 50 to 100 times stronger than morphine, and 30 to 50 times stronger than heroin.

 

“So, when you think about it, it’s just an incredibly potent opioid,” DEA Special Agent Joe Moses explains. “It’s incredibly dangerous, because it’s potentially lethal at very low levels. Ingestion of doses as small as .25 micrograms can be fatal.”

 

“Fentanyl is just another cut — it’s a cutting agent that they use with the heroin,” says Undercover Officer Eric Smith (name changed), who works in Southern New Jersey. “It’s just another thing they can add to it that’s cheap and that brings the high up real fast. Sometimes the fentanyl can be too much, because these aren’t pharmacists mixing it up. When the mix isn’t right, that’s when people go down.”  

 

While there have been instances of domestic production of clandestine fentanyl, much of it is sourced from Mexico. Mexican cartels like the Sinaloa Cartel, New Generation Jalisco Cartel, Juarez Cartel, and Los Zetas help push the supply of manufactured fentanyl over the border. Mexico, just like domestic production labs, gets its precursor chemicals directly from China.

great AJ show to archive on force innoculations.

 

vaccine insert says it causes type 1 diabetes and its loaded with dormant cancer viruses

they can turn on with stimuli,

all cancer is viruses.

the statist luciferians pump their children with it, temple of baal satanists worshiping

weird federali science false prophet. what a fluorided zombie genocide they keep

chanting for more.

 

the polio vaccine was probably a cia operation to condition them to take injections.

it was already dying off because it is a virus of finite halflife that mutates itself into something else.

every wonder why they never cured anything since polio?

 

the 800B vaccine injury mediation fund to indemnify pharmceutical clinton obama donors is funded by insurance premiums, obamacare.

its mediation to keep it out of courts and public record.

 

is explaining the gates - clinton news network technology is artificial mental illness, lying technology

the ignorant keep coming back for more

trump will probably defund cia NPR.

if a news company cant exist by free market competition in profitability of delivering evidence based reality, it cannot allowed to be funded by soros, or

how about Enron.

 

the good news is on Mar 15 obama debt ceiling "holiday" expiration, trump becomes line item spending dictator, the best thing is if they cant produce a budget.
the problem is trump has been paying down 80B debt a month and has ended obama 2.5T a year slave binge and will not exceed debt ceiling.

 

Headlines form breitbart today:

 

Politico 2009: Obama to ‘Replace’ Bush U.S.
Attorneys/Politico 2017: Trump to ‘Oust’ Obama
Appointees

 

 

Russian Ambassador ‘Had Lots of
Meetings’ with Clinton Campaign
