Be sure to watch “The Pharmacist,” a new Netflix documentary that offers great insight on why the opioid crisis has hit Americans so hard.  Like most problems of huge dimensions, it’s complicated, really—but watching the effect on society informs viewers in a way that few articles can do. According to CDC statistics, here are some statistics on the toll that opioids take in the U.S as of the year 2017 (most recent stats available from the CDC):

  1. U.S. health care providers wrote more than 191 million prescriptions for opioid pain medication—a rate of 58.7 prescriptions per 100 people.
  2. Despite guidelines to limit opioids as a first approach to managing chronic pain, a study found that primary care clinicians write 45% of all U.S. opioid prescriptions.
  3. More than 11 million people misused prescription opioids.
  4. Prescription opioids were involved in more than 35% of all opioid overdose deaths: nearly 17,000.
  5. The U.S. saw 218,000 Americans die from overdoses related to prescription opioids.

    Buccaneers -12.5 Opening point spread: Chargers -6Opening point total: 45.5Opening moneyline: Chargers -255, Broncos +250 In Sunday’s Buccaneers-Bears game, Tom Brady vs. Justin Fields will set a new NFL record for the largest age gap between starting quarterbacks.The previous record was Tom Brady vs. Mac Jones three weeks ago.Before that it was Tom Brady vs. Justin Herbert last year. The point spread for Sunday night’s Chicago Bears-Green Bay Packers game is one of the largest that the NFL North rivalry has seen in decades. The Buccaneers are a 3.5-point favorite in the game, according to Tipico Sportsbook. Opening point spread: Bears -3Opening point total: 44.5Opening moneyline: Bears -160, Lions +140 Even with the 49ers still to play, I think they are still the pick here. The Bears are 3-4 and while quarterback Justin Fields is the future, the emphasis is apparently on the future. With star running back David Montgomery sidelined, the Bears offense is off-track and just doesn’t look like themselves. The 49ers should roll here. https://bunyanoman.com/profile/jedhadden647176/ Explore thousands of exprienced tips and Predictions with verified picks and statistics.

    But Brian Vicente, co-author of the Colorado pot legalization law, said a handful of North American countries have expressed support for legalization. Thirty months after marijuana was legalized, Canadians are mostly happy with the status quo. Few think every illegal substance should be within the reach of any adult in the country. There is also a challenge for those involved in cannabis retail: marijuana users over the age of 55 are clearly not spending as much time inside stores as their younger counterparts. вЂў The United States government is continuing its war on drugs in many northern states. Also, there are many other countries where consuming cannabis is illegal. Canada is likely to appeal to these people as a tourist destination. The government of Canada is very optimistic about the fact that people from across the world will visit Canada and that cannabis tourism will also lead to a significant increase in both private as well as the government revenue. https://cannabis-canada-edibles-20.werite.net/post/2022/03/22/lsd-hallucinogen For example, Mexico’s courts ruled in 2018 that cannabis should be legal there. But its Congress still hasn’t passed legislation. One proposed bill would have legalized cannabis but made it very inaccessible.
