Medical Doctors in San Diego OVER Prescribing Opioids

So many prescriptions are being issued that these “Medical” professionals’ may as well be placing opioid dispensers in their waiting rooms.

The opioid epidemic in America has taken hold and is not on its way out anytime soon. Perhaps the hardest hit is Montgomery County, Ohio where law enforcement and local government are doing their best to wage war on the epidemic. Known as the “overdose capital of America,” the county sees more drug deaths than any other county in the country. In fact, the opioid problem has gotten so extreme that Ohio State Attorney General, Mike DeWine, is suing five prescription opioid drug manufacturers for the role they have played in the staggering number of opioid-related deaths.
While the current opioid street drugs that are plaguing Montgomery County are believed to be trafficked in from China (the world’s largest illegal exporter of the opioid Fentanyl) via Mexico, the opioid problem began two decades ago with prescription painkillers.
