An infographic detailing the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on the opioid epidemic.
West Virginia is racked by the opioid crisis. Drug companies told us that there would be no serious issues with opioids. Here is a clip from an article found here: https://www.addictions.com/opiate/the-role-of-pharmaceutical-companies-in-the-opioid-epidemic/
“Prior to the 1990s, the use of opioids as a pain treatment was reserved for the most severe forms of pain, such as cancer-related pain symptoms. Medical practitioners were well aware of the strong similarities between opioids and heroin in terms of their addictive properties and so only prescribed opioids as a last resort.
These practices changed in the 1990s in response to Purdue Pharma’s marketing campaign for its top-selling drug to date, OxyContin. OxyContin, a powerful opioid drug, was touted as a non-addictive drug suitable for treating most any type of pain symptom.
In 2010, Purdue Pharma generated $3.1 billion dollars off OxyContin sales alone. That being so, the company was eventually found guilty of misleading the public and ordered to pay penalties fines along the lines of $635 million dollars.
Aggressive Marketing Tactics
Much of today’s opiate epidemic stems from the aggressive marketing tactics used by pharmaceutical companies over the past two decades. Companies such as Endo Pharmaceuticals, Purdue Pharma as well as Johnson & Johnson centered their marketing campaigns on the use of opioids as all-purpose pain treatment medications."
What does this have to do with vaccines? Plenty. The very same pharmaceutical companies are telling us that vaccines are safe and effective. Can they be trusted? No! Are they safe and effective? No. Vaccines are not required to have the same blind testing as other drugs, and even with the testing of other drugs, many prove not to be safe.
So what is really behind the push for vaccines? Money. Big money. And huge conflicts of interest. West Virginia is one of only three states not allowing any opt out of vaccines for children attending school, except in very rare and hard to get cases of medical exemptions.
The extremely conflicted pharmaceutical companies, benefit off of the suffering of West Virginia children and residents who are vaccine injured.
