Although most parents understand the consequences of underage drinking, some believe that if their teenager is going to drink alcohol, it’s safer to drink at home. These adults, though, might not realize the horrible consequences that could result from that decision.
LEGALLY PRESCRIBED OPIOID NARCOTICS ARE PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE HEROIN PRODUCED IN A LABORATORY!
If you had no idea, you are not alone; in fact, there are many doctors who are not trained in pharmacology , and so base their decision to prescribe an opioid on information they receive from the manufacturer of the drug. This information may, or may not, provide total transparency of the drug’s safety and efficacy. Moreover, many patients taking prescription opioids know them as “pain killers” and are not aware of their similarity to heroin. Many make the assumption prescription opioids are safe because they are legal drugs prescribed by a doctor and dispensed by a pharmacist. LEGAL DOES NOT MEAN SAFE!
