    Everyone in America is on some sort of pill nowadays but, in the case of opiate addiction it is now hitting epidemic levels. People trust their doctors and doctors trust pharmaceutical companies who in turn profit from selling more drugs.
    True, opium is the best for pain management but why make an addictive substance more addictive through a similar manufacturing process as cigarettes?
    I often times hear people say, "well my doctor prescribed them to me."
    In the case of GMOs, maybe this too, is a similar scheme?
    And too many are now on heroin. How the hell did this drug make a come back let alone in suburbia. Along with meth use, heroin is exploding.
    Only thing is..... is where does most of the world's heroin come from???

    Yes; this is the most over prescribed drug country in the world!! Why? very simple: MONEY!!!!!! We have Governor here in FL who made millions on that.
    Why we have so many traffic incidents? Half of America who sits behind the wheel is taking drugs; some of them do not affect driving, but a majority does. On top of that we have all the loonies coming back from Afghanistan, who "tasted" the stuff; some of them may even built up an "import" system. etc etc This is what you get if a country solely is run on "greed" and "money"

    I believe that Heroin comes from the opium poppy. I'm not 100% sure though. Time for you to do a Google search.
