No one gets opioids & in fact PPL who need meds can't get them. The doctor who gave patients 60 Oxycontin per day gave 60 MILLIGRAM tablets (not #60 tablets) a day, and he's right, some people DO need that dose after 10+ years of taking the drug due to chronic pain and disability. KIDS GET CANCER AND HORRIFICALLY PAINFUL DISEASES! They do NEED opioids to control pain just like adults but in lower doses. This guy has no Fucking clue and needs to get informed before inciting others who don't know what they are getting upset about. I H8 jackass fearmongers. Kids with cancer SHOULD not have to suffer in pain Trevor! Idiot.

Who is to blame for Noah presenting falsehoods as facts? Who is to blame for his show not doing any real research and reporting on this complex issue in a way that would not be hysterical and destructive? This lurid depiction of pain meds forgets that millions of Americans live in intractable, chronic pain and use pain "opioids" to have mobility and lives. Now, due to the media hysteria about opioids, chronic pain patients are needlessly suffering and dying.
 The treatment of pain should never be subject to public hysteria, and it should never be used for cheap laughs. Pardon me, but what the hell does Noah know about treating pain?
It's this sort of thing that continues to fearmonger the public and keep them scared. This hurts people, Noah. This is killing intractable pain patients, it's not funny.
Neither is addiction. There is a war going on now. A war declared on pain patients by zealots and legislatures who can't stop the flow of street drugs, that are what is causing all the overdoses, so they decided to pass a bunch of ludicrous, one size fits all laws. The last thing anyone needs in their medical care is hysterical politicians, rushing to "do something" to stop the heroin crisis. But they have done the wrong thing. Or a hysterical media.
There is now a crisis in healthcare for chronic pain patients caused by this blind demonization of pain medications.
Another example of not thinking things through.
No one should want kids on opioids. Take a trip to a burn ward in the hospital and then tell me how they should not be treated for pain.

he didn't deserve to go to jail. doctors who get paid to push antidepressants are a lot worse.
Both have bad effects but at least oxycontin feels good. also, SSRI's are addictive, or at least cause withdrawal

You are all inhumane people if you support chronic pain patients suffering for no need and support government going over the boundary trying to be doctors when its not their job. The government is no different than the cartels or mafia using fear and extortion to force submission to their wickedness. I dont understand why all of you hypocrites care so much about taking away pain medicine from people suffering so much in need of some relief when you all abuse alcohol and weed for no medical purpose. Hypocrites. 90% of opioid deaths were junkies mixing meth,heroin, and vicodin to get high which they all got off the street not the damn doctors. The other 10% is from chronic pain patients not being given enough pain medicine to even at least remove a fraction of their horrible pain, so they took all their pain pills and drank alcohol to escape their hell by commiting suicide all because you inhumane people took away his only thing that could bring their pain from a 10 to a 6. The us government had us soldiers work with the afghans to protect their poppy plants. Hypocrites. They are making it impossible for doctors to treat us and for us to get pain relief because they want us to cimmit suicide or buy their heroin so they can make money to fund their black projects. When the day comes when you are in such horrendous pain you would do anything to get relief, remember you advocated against pain medicine for chronic pain. You reap what you sow. This country is suppose to be free where we have rights like the right to the pursuit of happiness which government cant take away. That means people have the right to heal their pain with whatever medicine works, we dont need government or doctors to give us permission and their blessing, and government cant write laws about it or extort us. We the people are the ones in power who appoint people to serve us. We dont submit to government but the other way around.

6 years old, meaning, a child with cancer can safely take this drug, not some kid who's a drug addict, making it okay for them to take this drug now. We can't always think it's the worst case scenario. There are children literally dying in this country every day from chronic illness and terminal illnesses, so don't think that because they say it's safe for sis year olds, they are condoning addiction. Addiction comes from feelings, not the drug. It's escapism, self-medicating.

Opioid addiction doesn't come from doctors or anything, it comes from people who feel hopeless. Some of the most hopeless people in this country happen to be Christians. you go to any church in America, you got someone bawling their eyes out on Sunday morning because they were drunk all weekend, please forgive me God, for I have sinned. first of all, telling people that they're sinners from birth doesn't really set the bar very high for achieving self esteem!

Sorry you are all misled by mainstream media sensationized hype. 60 oxycodone a day for someone with a disease or chronic condition that causes chronic illness is not all that unusual. Sorry, Purdue never said to crush, snort or inject oxy to bypass the extended release formulation. If a vet steps on a landmine and survives yet suffers from daily chronic pain - would you be so cold to deny him pain relief? .... it has been proven only 3-8% of chronic pain patients actually get addicted to their meds so should the rest of law abiding citizens be punished and denied these medications? I’m not saying Purdue wasn’t a bad actor marketing a strong Opioid as non addictive or for minor conditions. But should we punish everyone else who these drugs provide function and quality of life to?

believe it or not, addiction that centers on a specific driven source, opiate, amphetamines, and down the line to sugar are indeed inherited genetic impulses. these vices trickle down family trees and show up in the most peculiar ways, but they always command attention. people don't just say one day, because they ran into an obstacle or a promotion or were just happy or sad, "hey, i know, today i want to take, let's see, a particular system wide particle that will alter my own molecular structure of rna and dna, or my entire nervous system to the point of saturation, resulting in dependence, impaired judgement, injury, loss of family & friends, me, long and ridiculously long jail, or any jail time, and or prematurely ending my life and other's as well. yeah, that sounds fun." it doesn't work like that. from the day we're born there's loose wire that was meant to be there, with the written code that awakens the source we use to escape ourselves for a specific time. 2 things would cure it, 1 legalize it, if it's a problem create areas or communities, cities or countries specifically for that, so that the people claiming it's wrong and whatever they do i life is right, will be a thing of the past, 2 make the shit good enough that all you need is the initial dose and maybe like tetanus shots, booster shots ever 10 or 20 years to continue with the effects received from the first administering of the particle substance that found you interested in awakening the lineage old high in the first place. in scenario 1 the world spaces for those ignoring the pull it has on them, will shrink and only the "legal areas will be thriving with ingenuity and growth. scenario 2, it'd get just as old as time itself, and there'd be no cat and mouse game to live on. everyone would be calm and moving right along, just as life ought to be. it's pharma, and lawyers, judges, politicians who drive the industry. the cartel, because they are sure of themselves, they're passionate, and very seriously protective of their successful development (it's recommended do not put yourself in the position to negotiate anything with them.) it is however interesting to think in terms of the world power they are already in #1 spot of the pharmaceutical trade and for understanding to give them credit due, give them recipes for the life saving drugs. on that day, say good bye to the crooked legal establishments that holds the carrot out in front the donkey. because they'd collapse before the next sun began to rise.

People of all ages, genders, race, etc are all vulnerable to drug and alcohol addiction. I had a best friend back in high school who got addicted to heroin or meth (I don't remember which) and pretty much disappeared after dropping out of college. I know someone who is near and dear to my heart who has a terrible alcohol addiction. He is now sober, so much happier and living a healthy life but he must always mind himself and will always be a recovering alcoholic.
It's very easy to just blame people who are addicted. But look at the whole situation. We have a society that practically hands out addictive medicine like candy because it makes the most money for the Pharmacal companies. We drug up children who are a little eccentric or excitable. Our instinct now is to numb rather than deal with the problem. Our access to mental health care has improved as people have become more accepting of people seeking help but we need to push harder than ever before to find the root source of the problem.
I believe part of it is just the very nature of modern society. We live in a highly stressful and complex world, people (especially here in the US) work long hours and (I know plenty of people in this situation) have two or three jobs at once. Stability seems fleeting and more people are confused and scared to live in their world. So its an alternative to numb ourselves. Drugs are an easy avenue to do that and companies, drug dealers, etc are more than happy to supply it.

Jewish Family behind it all. But the news never tell you they are Ashkenazic Jewish Family that own the company. 
Who Is Behind The Opioid Epidemic: Yes they hide that the Jewish Family are behind the OPIOID EPIDEMIC! Check out video below. Mortimer Sackler was the second son of Jewish immigrants Isaac Sackler, who was born in what is now Ukraine and Sophie (née Greenberg) Sackler from Poland.[1] His father was a grocer in Brooklyn, where Sackler attended Erasmus Hall High School.[1] He had two brothers,[7] Arthur, the oldest who died in 1987, and Raymond, the youngest of the three who died in 2017.[5]

Here's the problem: opioids have genuine medicinal value and some people who are on them genuinely need them for serious and permanent pain. Scandals like this scare doctors, who have been prescribing the same medication for years on end for legitimate patients, into cutting off those patients from their medicine forcing them into the black market to find pain relief.

As horrible as it is and can be, sometimes we are in horrific pain. I myself was prescribed 10mg/10x day(if needed) for excruciating pain as the result of having all of my teeth rot out of my mouth after being held against my will in the CZ and having all my teeth rot as the non-fluoride water didn’t protect the braces I had on, nor did being fed crap food and not provided any dental hygiene. Returning to the USA, and not having health/dental and requiring some $40k worth of dental care I wouldn’t wish anyone to have had to take the amount of pain medications I was prescribed. Taking fentanyl patches, dilauded, morphine, not to mention the amount of Vicodin or norco I took which was considerably worse considering the enormous amounts of NSAIDs and acetaminophen that is paired with those. But I don’t blame anyone, any one doctor or organization, though I’m sure I could. I think like most people I’ve known and been friends with who have had similar issues, we’d just like a health system that can meet our needs, help us afford to receive the care we need to end years of having to take drugs like these or buprenorphine. But abusing your medications isn’t mandatory. Just because I binge watch Trevor Noah doesn’t mean that I MUST skip through the video.

In relation to this , a story should be done about CVS pharmacy asking for DEA numbers for all drugs even if they are not controlled substances. They claim it is only way to look up some doctors, specifically vets since they do not have a NPI number. DEA numbers are reserved for controlled substances and it should never be given out so casually.
Pharmacy, gov and doctors should be working as check and balances for each other, a lot seems to be slipping through the cracks.
