    You know what I find ridiculous, the person who berates drug addicts as losers, solely responsible for all their troubles, now makes a thread that suggests blaming terrorists may be to blame.

    I blame it on endless re-runs.

    It's a horror show, yes, but not terrorism. I have seen articles placing the rate of addiction as up seven THOUSAND percent since the introduction of oxycotin. Seems obvious, step one is to withdraw this drug from the market.

    It's an extremely serious problem - but I don't see how it qualifies as a "terrorist attack."

    Umm... I couldn't see it as a terrorist attack. Unless these people were going around injecting lethal doses into people...

    Several cities and (I think) a few states, along with thousands of patients, are suing the manufacturer of oxycotin for damages caused by their defective drug.

    If they prevail, the doctors who prescribed it and the FDA regulators who approved it are (logically) likewise responsible.

    I am suspicious of the universal addiction care coverage in Obamacare and willing to believe some evil people created this need so as to be paid to meet it.

    But even so, this is not terrorism. It might be criminal (if my worst suspicions are true), but still not terrorism.

    Well I guess I could envision a domestic type of terrorism where "they" (substitute bad authority) dreamed up a way to take down the lower and middle class by drugging them into a stupor. Keep them addicted so they dont care anymore about politics, economics, society in general. Makes it easier for "them" to take over and do what they want if a lot of people arent aware.
    Thanks from Madeline

    If a conspiracy exists, it most likely was driven by greed.

    Not that others cannot exploit this "emergency" for their own nefarious purposes.

    Or power. I mean imagine a hypothetical scenario where the makers of Oxy decided to pay off doctors, hospitals and pharmacies to get people addicted. It would not only give them all wealth, but power. In that case there could be multiple terrorists if the purpose was to addict for either a payoff or to get people in certain areas addicted and not others.

    Fentanyl is the major problem now. The main one that is killing so many.
