As it turns out, our "Operation Enduring Freedom" in Afghanistan put millions of Americans in heroin-addict "prison," and many would die of addiction and overdose, even taking the pain killers "as prescribed" by their medical doctors. Now there's a very insightful, entertaining series on HULU, featuring former "Mr. Mom" and "Batman," Michael Keaton, who plays a doctor who not only prescribes the opioids against his better judgment for his patients, but becomes deadly addicted to them himself.
The series reveals how the first pharma gurus marketed OxyContin as a miracle pain killer and life-changing drug for people with chronic injuries, especially those who get seriously hurt in the workforce, like miners, factory workers and construction workers. That was just the beginning of the heroin-addict avalanche that would besiege the whole country.
Purdue Pharma, with Arthur Sackler at the helm, launched OxyContin back in 1996, and what followed was a complete horror story, funded by a fake "War on Terror." Easy money. Easy victims. The business grew fast, as did the number of addicts, drug abusers, dealers and pharma reps.
The heroin time-release capsules worked like a charm at the beginning, but then addiction set in, and withdrawals were driving patients to steal and kill for more. Deaths from opioid overdoses would climb to record levels. Patients also figured out how to break the pills open and snort the drug for immediate full effect, with no time release. This really embedded the addiction. Crime rates skyrocketed.
Approved to treat severe AND moderate pain, OxyContin became the drug of choice for doctors, nurses and patients alike. Patients became drug dealers while their doctors were getting incentives for being drug pushers. The "War in Afghanistan" raged on, and the opium harvest and supply grew by leaps and bounds.
The controlled substance was completely out of control, and the FDA was "all in" on the fraud, knowing what would come from millions of patients, some with just moderate pain from a tooth ache or headache, taking time-released heroin pills. These patients, of course, included war veterans with injuries and PTSD. The sales formula for the narcotic was solid, and the strategies for dishing it out were pure evil.
High school and middle school kids were addicted, partying on the drug. Young people who tried it for the first time often died. Purdue Pharma owners and executives all knew about the addictive qualities, but they just didn't care. They made up terms to manipulate doctors and authorities into believing there were NO downsides to OxyContin.
The study the doctors and Purdue Pharma writers were citing was a fake, and turned out to just be an opinion letter from some rogue doctor. They used terms like "pseudo-addiction" to blame the patient for having a psychological or fake addiction. Purdue Pharma made up the name "breakthrough pain" for people who had pain that other non-opioid painkillers could not keep at bay.
They even went so far as to say that if a patient was still in pain after becoming addicted to the heroin pills, just double the dose (prescription) because they are "dopesick." In their world, nobody was dying from Oxycontin, they were dying from pain that wasn't addressed with their heroin pills.
So if you're "pro-vaccine" now, are you "anti-opioid?" Do you still believe the same pharma goons who created the opioid epidemic and lied to everyone wouldn't lie about vaccines? It's all connected.
