We are fighting the opioid crisis by trying to stop doctors from prescribing them. Only 40% of opioid deaths are due to prescription provided opioids. That amounts to 25,000 deaths a year. Over 80,000 or 3 times as many die from alcohol. not county the 15 million people suffer from alcohol induced medical issues. Smoking kills over 480,000 every year. Yet, we can buy tobacco & alcohol when ever we want at a location near you. There are 100 million people with some type of pain. Many live productive lives by taking prescribed opioids. But no more. They either do without or have the inexpensive opioids replaced by expensive drugs like Lyrica. Those fighting this war decided that stopping these deaths is more important that these people getting the drugs they need. Seems to me that if taking opioids off the market is the solution to the opioid war that this plan should also work to solve the tobacco & alcohol deaths by taking these off the market.
