THE PAIN

People suffer pain and pain is real. Pain has been around and on this planet for quite sometime. Pain is a medical issue, a normal complication which exist in nearly every species on earth and beyond.  Pain and the treatment of pain, drug dependency, drug intoxication are medical public health issues and not criminal.

Yet, one cannot ignore the social economic, racial components and disparities that exist which have been mis-handled in the treatment of pain, dependency and drug intoxications. (see Video below by Norman and Jelani Clement, HHS Bldg US Surgeon General Conference on Racial Disparities Mental Opioids, “Public Health Approach)

THE CRISIS

The clear reason why there has been a classification of a “OPIOD CRISIS IN AMERICA” is more white people have gained access an are dying from  Illegally Manufactured Derivative-of Opioids Substances (IMDOS) which are mis-classified as drugs but, are in reality  poisons. These IMDOS,  when abused co-committanly with other none and unknown euphoric substance (NUES) will cause intoxication resulting in death.” 

Thus, these authors are furthered bothered by the saying Opiod Epidemic. Both the crisis and epidemic have been  driven by the increasing numbers of White People dying on illicit

manufacturing opioid derivatives that has turned on them and were traditionally allowed to be distributed in communities of colors (black and hispanic). However,  leaving intact a punitive, carceral system as the appropriate response for Black and Brown drug use.” 

THE OPIOD HOAX

Thus, the hoax  of the Opioid Epidemic and Crisis is as  nearly equivalent to that of the D.W. Griffiths, Movie Birth of a Nation, where in both are racist and “racism is racism,” as scholar William Trotter further stated “one knows it when they see it.”

Yet, little known and a very under reported is a Federal Government study called White Opioids: Pharmaceutical Race and The War on Drugs, that wasn’t , released April 2017 by The United States Department Health and Human Services (HHS) a 25 page  study (with broad foot notes) on White Opioids,(OPEN FOOT NOTE AT BOTTOM #1) which states; 

“This ‘White drug war’ has historical precedents in which predominantly White populations have used social privilege to invoke ‘medical need’ to secure or maintain access to powerful sedatives or stimulants in the mid to late twentieth century (see Herzberg, 2013). But in the case opioids, addiction treatment itself is being selectively pharmaceuticalized in ways that preserve a protected space for White opioid users, while leaving intact a punitive, carceral system as the appropriate response for Black and Brown drug use.”
