US Addiction Epidemic Fuelled By Pharma Corporations


Pill Overkill (2015): Painkiller abuse has reached epidemic levels in the US. Opioids now cause more deaths than any other drug, raising the question: are doctors and pharmaceutical companies acting in their patients' best interests?

Big Pharma Takes Opioid Addiction Global



There’s not a deep stigma with the overprescription of pain killer like Oxycontin in the United States. As a result, the number of doctors prescribing this drug has actually decreased significantly. This also has to do with some federal regulation banning some people getting access to the drug due to fears of abuse. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian of The Young Turks break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go

OxyContin is a dying business in America.

With the nation in the grip of an opioid epidemic that has claimed more than 200,000 lives, the U.S. medical establishment is turning away from painkil…

Who Profits from the Opioid Crisis? Meet the Secretive Sackler Family Making Billions from OxyContin

Who Profits from the Opioid Crisis? Meet the Secretive Sackler Family Making Billions from OxyContin


This week, President Donald Trump’s nominee for drug czar, Republican Congressmember Tom Marino, had to withdraw from consideration after a Washington Post/”60 Minutes” investigation found he led a drug industry-backed effort to pass a law that weakened the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s ability to crack down on addictive opioids. Meanwhile, calls are growing to look at the major pharmaceutical companies that have fueled the opioid crisis. A new investigation by Esquire magazine reveals how the secretive Sackler family, owners of the company that invented OxyContin, downplayed the risks of addiction and exploited doctors’ confusion over the drug’s strength. We speak with Christopher Glazek, the Esquire reporter behind the story.

The Opioid Epidemic: A Deliberate Policy

The Opioid Epidemic: A Deliberate Policy


To effectively deal with today's opioid crisis, you have to confront the fact that the mass drugging of the American people has been a deliberate policy, the British Empire’s new Opium War, to create an environment in which everyday drug usage is normal. Because a doped up population is content and servile. Once that’s clear, we can break from the system of British control, and address why our people are in such despair by rebuilding our economy.

Drug War Alternatives That Work • Overcriminalized: Substance Abuse

Drug War Alternatives That Work • Overcriminalized: Substance Abuse


The "War on Drugs" has been a complete disaster since 1971. Now police have alternatives to incarceration that actually help people -and save money for the taxpayers.

It’s simple. Diversion programs work better than incarceration – for everyone. In cities like Seattle, San Antonio, and Salt Lake City, we see that successful solutions are a viable option to help end serious social problems. These services alter the course of people’s lives in a positive way and save taxpayers huge amounts of money. We cannot continue to isolate and imprison people who suffer from mental illness, substance abuse, or homelessness. We must treat them with compassion and care to better serve our communities and our pocketbooks.

It's time we got serious about pulling our money out of incarceration and putting it into systems that foster healthy communities. Hundreds of thousands of people are locked up not becaus…

Anonymous - The Story of Aaron Swartz Full Documentary


This film follows the story of programming prodigy and information activist Aaron Swartz. From Swartz's help in the development of the basic internet protocol RSS to his co-founding of Reddit, his fingerprints are all over the internet. But it was Swartz's groundbreaking work in social justice and political organizing combined with his aggressive approach to information access that ensnared him in a two-year legal nightmare. It was a battle that ended with the taking of his own life at the age of 26. Aaron's story touched a nerve with people far beyond the online communities in which he was a celebrity. This film is a personal story about what we lose when we are tone deaf about technology and its relationship to our civil liberties. Read more: FBI Files: Who killed Aaron Swartz?

'We're treated like drug addicts': As America fights opioid addiction, the healthcare system is failing people who live with chronic pain

Image
By , BusinessInsider


Dominique Goodson says she would be happy to get off her opioid prescription.

A New Jersey resident, Goodson has sickle cell anemia, an inherited blood condition in which the body has a hard time producing healthy red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. It can cause intense pain. She has tried to cut her prescription before, and her doctors are now slowly lowering the dose of the long-acting painkiller.

"I would love to not be on opioids or any medication, period," Goodson told Business Insider.
Goodson is one of the 25 million people in the US living with chronic pain. Some turn to devices or non-opioid painkillers, others to alternatives like yoga or meditation. But many have found relief only from opioid painkillers.

These painkillers are at the heart of a crisis that's raging. Between 1990 and 2015, more than 183,000 people in the US died from overdoses related to prescription opioids.

There are nearly half a million mentally ill people serving time in America's prisons and jails. As sheriffs and prison wardens become the custodians of this burgeoning population, how can a penal system cope with a problem that it was never designed to solve?


With exclusive and unprecedented access to prison therapy sessions, mental health treatment meetings, crisis wards and prison disciplinary tribunals, this documentary goes deep inside Ohio's state prison system to explore the topic of mental health behind bars. Reginald Wilkinson, director of the Ohio Department of Corrections, complains that he has become the de facto director of a mental health system. As the rising number of mentally ill inmates shows no sign of abating, those working inside the nation's prisons are struggling with a system designed for punishment rather than rehabilitation. Such a case is Carl McEachron, sent to prison for stealing a bicycle in 1988. Car…

Prophets of Rage Depress the Hell Out of Me

By Andy Cush, SPIN


Prophets of Rage would like you to join the revolution. To help you along, they’re offering an official Prophets of Rage Revolution Starter Letter, filled with tips and calls to action about joining a union and starting a band. “Friends, fans, comrades, Prophets of Rage welcomes you to The Resistance!” it reads in part. “Here are some party supplies for fighting the power.” At least I think that’s what it says. There’s a barely legible lo-res PNG of the letter on the Prophets’ website, but to really read it, you’ll need to pay $9.99 to have it printed on 11×17 paper–presumably some sort of extremely high-quality parchment–and delivered to your doorstep. Limited Edition–going fast!
The letter, with its bald commodification of solidarity and struggle, is a useful emblem for the band. Comprised of the former instrumentalists of Rage Against the Machine, plus the Chuck D of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill on vocals, Prophets of Rage have spent the l…

Mere hours after news broke of the Smiths Classical concerts, which were set to take place later this year with former members of the Manchester band and the Manchester Camerata Orchestra, one of the billed line-up has denied any involvement in the project.

Bassist Andy Rourke issued a statement on Monday claiming that he hadn't given permission to be involved in the event, and wouldn't be taking part.

Rourke's representative told Rolling Stone: "In no point in time did Andy Rourke agree to participate or otherwise license or authorise the use of his name, likeness or any personal quotes in any manner in connection with this Classically Smiths project.

He continued: "The parties involved were advised of this on multiple occasions prior to them going to press. A press conference and press release were scheduled and serviced to the media witho…

Norman Quentin Cook[1] (born Quentin Leo Cook; 31 July 1963),[2][3] also known by his stage name Fatboy Slim, is an English DJ, musician, multi-instrumentalist and record producer/mixer.[4] As a solo electronic act, he has won ten MTV Video Music Awards and two Brit Awards. His records as Fatboy Slim also helped to popularise the big beat genre, which achieved mainstream popularity in the 1990s.

Cook first rose to fame in the 1980s as the bass guitarist for the Hull-based indie rock band The Housemartins, who scored a UK number-one single with their a cappella cover of Isley-Jasper-Isley's "Caravan of Love". After the band split, Cook formed Beats International whose debut album spawned their signature hit, "Dub Be Good to Me", which was another UK number-one as well as going on to become the seventh best-selling single of 1990 in the UK. Cook then went on to join numerous other acts, including Fr…

Depeche Mode/dɪˌpɛʃˈmoʊd/ are an English electronic band that formed in Basildon, Essex in 1980. The group consists of founders Dave Gahan (lead vocals), Martin Gore (guitar, keyboards, vocals), and Andy Fletcher (keyboards, bass). Depeche Mode released their debut album Speak & Spell in 1981, bringing the band onto the British new wave scene. Original band member Vince Clarke (keyboards, guitar), left the band after the release of the album, leaving the band as a trio to record A Broken Frame, released the following year. Gore took over the lead songwriting duties and, later in 1982, Alan Wilder (drums, percussion, keyboards) officially joined the band to fill Clarke's spot, establishing a line up that would continue for the next 13 years.

The band's last albums of the 1980s, Black Celebration and Music for the Masses, established them as a dominant force within the electronic music scene. A highl…

O'Shea Jackson Sr. (born June 15, 1969), known professionally as Ice Cube, is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer, actor, screenwriter, and entrepreneur. One of the founding artists of gangsta rap, Ice Cube initially gained recognition as the primary songwriting and performing member of the seminal hip-hop groups C.I.A. and N.W.A, the latter of which gained extreme notoriety for pushing the boundaries of lyrical content in mainstream popular music, as well as visual imagery in music videos.[1]

After leaving N.W.A in December 1989, Ice Cube embarked on a successful solo career, releasing the albums AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted (1990) and Death Certificate (1991), both of which have attained platinum certification in the United States, while also being classed as defining albums of the 1990s.[2] Much of his musical output has contained harsh socio-political commentary and storytelling, …
