He wasn't lying...My grand father told me years ago. People go to the VA to die. So, I have NEVER went to them
You remember that big dust up they had like last year I think when vets we dying waiting on care. And not that the truth has come out about opiates being addictive, they are cutting many of us off cold turkey, and dumping us in pain management clinics. So now they are overloaded.
Long story short, the medical field was lied to by the pharmaceutical companies about opiates being addictive, now the truth has come out.
Counties sue narcotics makers, alleging 'campaign of deception
Two California counties sued five of the world's largest narcotics manufacturers on Wednesday, accusing the companies of causing the nation's prescription drug epidemic by waging a "campaign of deception" aimed at boosting sales of potent painkillers such as OxyContin.
Officials from Orange and Santa Clara counties — both hit hard by overdose deaths, emergency room visits and escalating medical costs associated with prescription narcotics — contend the drug makers violated California laws against false advertising, unfair business practices and creating a public nuisance.
So coming off the heels of the bad press over vets dying awaiting care, they get hit with this. So the vets are the ones feeling the brunt of it.
