Don't know that I've ever heard a research journalist that uses snopes as a source. Isn't it your job to do your own research? I feel like this guy doesn't really know what he's taking about a lot of the time!

the pharmacutical companies are not to blame, it is bad dosing and inattentive medical professionals, and also people like the easy way out so they like to take a pill and then blame others for their problemz

i took opiate pain pills for years for a back injury and after surgery that left me with permanent nerve damage. the opiates made it so i could work and provide for my family. they cut me off and now i cant work like i used to. i went from a patient that never took more than prescribed to an addict with the stroke of a pen.

During the time of the English occupation in China they allowed Opium to flow into China in order to get the populace addicted. IMHO the Chinese absolutely know what they are doing.

I don't like this guy; he doesn't seem particularly bright.

For all the research this guy put into his book you would think he would get some of the small facts right. The Poppy flowers you see in the USA are not the same Poppy that you extract Opium from.
