Follow the money. We’ve heard this so often and it remains the best way to discover the source of social problems. Too often, we blame the victims, the people who through no fault of their own, become addicted to pain killers. As guest Chris McGreal, investigative report for The Guardian discovered through his extensive research, the problem is over-prescribing. In most countries, health care is a service. In America is is an industry, focused entirely on profits. The marketing gimmick was that there was an epidemic of untreated pain in America. All other industrialized countries call for managing pain; here we encourage people to just take a pill, tolerate no pain. And look what it has done to us. Again, follow the money.
