Doctors prescribed Drugs. Manytimes they overestimated the length of time that the patients would be in pain.

This is why TN and 48 other states have begun having a database for Patients and their prescriptions (this is by patient not doctor this way they cannot doctor shop or ER hop)

That's a good idea.

Let's hope doctors were not responsible for this:
Previously, Eyre had found in an award-winning investigation that from 2007 to 2012, drug firms poured a total of 780 million painkillers into the state — which has a total population of about 1.8 million. The small town of Kermit had a population of 392, but a single pharmacy there received 9 million hydrocodone pills over two years from out-of-state drug companies.
Don't you think scrupulous companies would have blown the whistle on this? I do.

that was what was being prescribe. their are 300,000,000+ guns in the US, only ~11,000 are used to commit murder.

the Addictiveness of the drugs vs usefulness has been on a learning curve.

Pot of the 60s was not addictive, what we are seeing today is addictive, Just like Tobacco companies, the manufactures are insuring this, they are following the same model

Candy Cigarettes, now we have THC laced gummy bears.

Dude, you just spawned a whole school of off-topic red herrings.

There must be a lot of pain in Kermit: 9,000,000 hydrocodone pills over two years - from out-of-state drug companies - equals more than 11,479 pills per person per year, or, almost 32 pills a day per person. That's about 4 times the lethal dose, for context.
Thanks from Lyzza

You brought up the number.. I just used (Similar elements as a visual aid)

The number sent was in line with the number prescribed. Patients do doctor Shop, ER Hop to get drugs..

in fact in TN if you are on opioids as a prescription, you have to be drug tested to insure you are taking YOUR prescription, not selling it. Also the database prevents Doctor 1 from not being aware of Doctor 2 prescription written for your and when and how many pills were dispensed by pharmacies also the pharmacies check the database incase the doctor missed the previous prescription.

Agreed! If Trump proposes to execute drug company execs who've flooded states like Kentucky and West Virginia with opiates, I'm all for it! But, for some reason I suspect that's not the kind of drug pushers he's talking about.

With all the gum-flapping about Trump admiring Vladimir Putin, I'd say his hero worship of Duterte should be more worrisome!

Good for Trump. Trump wants the death penalty for hard drug pushers and not soft drug pushers. Crack almost took all of my money and I quit crack cold turkey by myself. Crack bad, pot good.

We have the same thing in Connecticut.
I am monitored by the state - have to present my drivers license when I pick up prescriptions every month, etc. Also must have urine tests monthly to ensure that my labs don't show higher usage than I'm prescribed for...my doctor is obligated to report any deviation.
