  • The Opiod crisis/emergency/epidemic - whatevever - hit me hard. No, I never abused the opiate (morphine) that I took for 14 years nor did I abuse the OxyContin that a ‘pain clinic doctor prescribed for me for one year. Once I entered that clinic, I felt that I was seen as a potential criminal. Just as an FYI, these “pain clinics” are more akin to zoos - there may be dozens upon dozens of doctors affiliated with the clinic but there is, generally, only one doctor in residence; the one that signs all of the prescriptions. The chumps (Er, chimps) are those waiting in the lobby to be called back for a urine sample and then headed into a large hall with smaller halls of different colors. I became a criminal when my apartment was burglarised (the 1st - I had 5 in one month) and my medications were stolen. Now I had just had my OxyContin refilled two days prior to the break-in. I knew that the policy for “lost or stolen” medications would not be refilled. So, I went through cold-turkey withdrawal.... but I was still in horrid pain. I found weed. And it has been more comforting to me than any opioid product.
  • Decriminalize Cannabis!
  • 4 more days till we elect a new governor in nj, since we havnt had one in like 2 years
  • All I get is black screen on this channel for the last couple days. Ideas?
  • Interesting clip from 'Morning Joe', completely failing to get an answer from a squirmer. Or even pressing him on the fact he doesn't appear to have a plan!
  • I don't care about any drug addicts.... Put them in jail where they belong....... STOP the opioid addict bailout. Take responsibility for your actions..... EVERYONE knows drugs are bad...... Don't do it!! Addicts dying is just Darwin..... They weren't contributing to society anyway.
  • Trump is one ugly motherfucker.
  • legalise it. those that want drugs get them anyway. if legal, at least there´s no need to become criminals and overdoses would drop a lot because people would exactly know how strong the product is.
  • Enforcement is important! Focus it on pushers... I mean pharma companies and doctors who run "pill mills".
  • Where does Trump think he is going to get all that money. He keeps saying a billions for this and that, but wants to cut taxes with huge tax cuts to the wealthy. Why does he not just put restrictions on how many refills patients can get.
  • Everyone go sign the petition for Trumps Impeachment! Go, go, go! Before he wakes up and starts WW3!
  • 4:50 WTF is up with that lady's eyebrows
  • such a good friend, trump won't touch his "fucking phone"
  • Everything Trump says is so cringe worthy.
  • Trump's response to serious interview questions make me cringe. He literally dances around the question and makes it about himself and gives no intelligible response. I cannot understand how anyone in their right mind would think that he is qualified to run our nation.
  • my daughter became addicted to oxycotton prescribed to her after a car accident. As an addict she became homeless, a thief, an unfit mother. Eventually began us in heroin. contracted hep C. was in and out of jail. She is now 2 years clean and is doing well. Opioid prescribed irresponsibly almost killed her.
  • Sometimes it seems that Donald Trump speaks only to the voices in his head.
  • Good job Donny Trump - drug problem solved. Now fix the loose nuts and bolts inside your head.
  • If You're addicted, though, please look into Kratom...
  • Gosh, people seem to forget that when they go after large Pharma companies it will crush the people who go to a chronic pain clinic and scare doctors from helping people in need. The addicts will find a fix anyway. I Had emergency surgery and ppl were so afraid there to medicate with opiods that they ended up pumping KETAMINE into me when I had specifically declined that type of treatment! It's like Equifax, you will have to understand that the cornerstone of a market with huge social influence will make decisions through greed. Unfortunately, just like any massive company with products needed in large quantities for some people to maintain a reasonable quality of life, they need to be protected. Auto-bailout, Chemo drugs, Dialysis companies, credit monitoring, cleaning products, cell phone companies, even tech like Facebook, Verizon, Google.... so exasperating when laws are enacted through public outcry (of people who know NOTHING about living in pain) that squeeze Drs, legit patients, and companies that just produce a product. There are solutions that treat and solve but also protect little people peeing in cups, legally going to a clinic, and basically opening their lives up to the govt and public just to solve their knee/back issues. SO SAD.
  • God loves you all so much he sent his son the Jesus the messiah to die on the cross for our sins to offer us salvation through his death and resurrection. Our sins prevent us from having a relationship with God thus sins will lead sinners to eternal death and hell. You can be reunited with God through repentance and belief in God through Jesus. He desires for you to suceed and live a fruitful life by knowing the truth. Repent of your sins, be baptised and turn to God through Jesus. Eternal life can be granted to you through belief in God and the gospel. I pray that you read the holy bible and have the light of life!
  • tattoo'd eyebrow woman over tweetie pie's left shoulder lmao :) all of them look like they have a gun pointing at them.
  • Many lives take a darker pass, because of trumps inability to enact, this translates to many deaths on his neck in the us.
  • You put this better than anyone this is congress problems they want money they don't care how many die! Dr. Made money too USA always like bigger more more lol. I can not see congress saying not to money.
  • matter historical stand link loud warm couple profession picture maybe playoff replace.
  • WTF is wrong with the eyebrows of the woman behind Trump in 4:38???? Most appropriate for a cartoonish president as the actual orange turd.
  • SINCE WE KNOW WHERE THE DRUGS ARE COMING FROM, AFGHANISTAN, AND WE KNOW WHO IS TRAFFICKING THE DRUGS INTO THE UNITED STATES, CIA, FBI, NSA, BLACK OPS, CABAL UNDER THE DISGUISE OF "TOP SECRET". WHO IS POLICING THE POLICE? PRESIDENT TRUMP IS EITHER PART OF KILLING OUR CHILDREN, AND HELPING TO CREATE THIS CRISIS, OR HE IS BRAIN DEAD AND PART OF THE PROBLEM. IS THE REASON WE INCREASED THE NUMBER OF SOLDIERS IN AFGHANISTAN TO PROTECT THEIR OPIUM CROPS, WHICH IS AT AN ALL TIME HIGH IN PRODUCTION?
  • It's so depressing that actual clear, relavent news is for the most part left up to comedians now.
  • is no one going to say anything about the lady behind trump that has the wonky eyebrows
  • heya guys ! ! bbq cabinet really looks stronglz weirdgrave ..
  • Great piece that concisely explains the difficulty of combating the opioid epidemic. That said what the heck is going on with eyebrows on the woman behind Trump at 4.55??
  • Santa Monica was a caring, friendly, smiling community when I arrived here in 1952. Today it's a phony, 'resort' community bringing it's city council good pocket money... everything detestable in humanity comes here. Even the Meals-on-Wheels is is a moneymaking detestable... my dog won't go near it, it's not fit for human consumtion!
  • So the entire discussion if about government funding? So we're just assuming that if you get addicted you should get free treatment paid by someone else? Wth if you were irresponsible and got addicted, then pay for your own damn treatment.
  • Legalize tax and regulate all drugs
  • Having a hand ring a bell ie a person checking into a hotel over the graphic THE CHECK IN is completely meaningless, because the intent of the segment...checking _on_ an issue...has nothing to do with that action!
  • No matter what the subject, Failing Trump thinks it's ALL about HIM. Biggest EGO on the planet!
  • Purdue Pharma played a huge role in the opioid epidemic. In 2007 they paid out one of the largest fines ever levied against a pharmaceutical firm for mislabeling its product OxyContin, and three executives were found guilty of felony criminal charges. They are also being sued by multiple state Attorneys General.
  • While i do appreciate bring attention to the issue; however you are being very misleading. When you say the US uses 80% of the world's opiates, that is false. Russia, with 0.5 of the global population, uses 13% of the heroin.
  • With how often he tans, I'm surprised he hasn't gotten skin cancer yet...
  • display shortly circuit excitement national addition writing.
  • its just so fucking crazy you guys... our president is SUCH a terrible speaker... he just sounds like the dumbest person we've ever put in there...
  • Why don't we just jail those super-predators???
  • BTW, don't know who's making the subtitles on this channel but I want to thank 'em. Best subs ever, great help for foreigners not much used to american accent(s)
  • He talks like he's on drugs himself. Goes on tangents, speaks in half sentences, cant stay on message, rambles. All signs of abuse.
  • Anybody with CC as a friend is a complete POS. All about side stepping the law.
  • How about stop manufacturing the drugs we lived with out them get rid of them.
  • What's up with that lady's eyebrow in the back??? 5:00 mins.
  • 22000 / (365 *2) = ~30 pills per person, per day ... holy smokes. Doctor said I need a backiotomy!
  • Well, we have a first. First mentally retarded president.
  • If you love opiates get ready for a GOLDEN age.
