FROM THE FILES OF THE DAILY REMEDY PODCAST
There are many prominent researchers working behind the scenes to rectify erroneous opioid policies at the state and federal levels. Among these silent researchers, Dr. Terri Lewis’s work rings the loudest.
She has redefined the very meaning of data in the opioid epidemic, conducting one of the largest behavioral surveys on opioid use and the experience of chronic pain.
Through her research, we now know of inherent biases within the data used in opioid risk stratification, and the implications of these biases on the lives of chronic pain patients across the country.
TERRI LEWIS PH.D. point out”
“DEA HAS A MISSION THAT STILLS SEPARATES ITS POLICY FROM THE HEALTH OF THE POPULATION”
It is because of researchers like Dr. Terri Lewis that we understand the value of prescription opioids through the voices of people with lived experience.

The Reprobates is a story about the culture of persecution and corruption propagated by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), a rogue agency within the United States Judiciary, making up facts when they don’t exist and laws where there are no laws
whose actions are sanctioned and tolerated, threatening both the rules of law while undermining healthcare delivery, which begs to answer; who dictates medical healthcare protocols, medical science or law enforcement?
This is the story of Dr. Terence Sasaki, MD of Hawaii, who went to New York University Medical as a Resident in Neuro-Endo-Vascular Surgery.
And found himself 10 years in U.S. Federal Prison System, Accused of Crimes in places he had Never Been
“PRACTICING MEDICINE WHILE ASIAN“
“HOW THE WAR ON DRUGS HAS COME TO YOUR DOCTOR’S OFFICE“
The United States of America repeatedly wags its finger at other countries like China for their ethnic atrocities and boasts that it is the land of opportunity for all. But we who live in America know that it is a lie…a big lie.
Unlike Russia, America currently wages war against its own citizens, particularly those of color. This is not only those of low socioeconomic standing but also the United States’ most accomplished minorities.
Doctors of color have clawed their way out of the bucket of crabs through hard work, patience, and talent. But the United States rewards this well-earned success with incarceration for supposed drug dealing.
Just like the lie of American meritocracy, so is the drug war based on lies.
For example, the attached Ex. 1 DAWN (Drug Abuse Warning Network) Report, which supposedly showed the increasing danger of prescription drug misuse, exemplifies the pseudo-science used to support those lies. However, if you look at the fine print, you see, “A drug misuse death is defined as a drug-related death caused by drugs, overmedication, all other accidental causes, and where the cause could not be determined” (pg1 of 4). This means that if a piano falls on top of you, you are counted as a drug misused death.1
If that were not enough, “This report also includes all deaths related to drug misuse where an opiate (including natural and synthetic opiates) contributed to the death. Opiates include prescription pain medications and heroin, which is included because its metabolite cannot always be distinguished from the metabolites of other opiates.” This means that EVERYONE who died of heroin is assumed & included in statistics for drug misuse death that SAMSHA & the DEA claim was due to prescriptions written by physicians.
THE REPROBATES, A CULTURE OF CORRUPTION
But that’s not all because “The drugs acquired through legitimate prescriptions cannot be differentiated from diverted prescription medications or illicit drugs because information on the source is unavailable.” This means there is no way to know whether misused drugs originate from theft of warehouses or trucks versus those prescribed by physicians. Indeed, the claim that “pill mills” are responsible for drug addiction, deaths, and morbidity is fake science.
There are a lot of problems with these so-called studies, such as that they used only six states to represent the entire country, as well as common myths as described on their website at the time (eg, the presumption of drug misuse was not even based on testing of blood or urine).2
THE DOJ, DEA, & SAMSHA ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DRUG CRISIS, DEATHS, & ADDICTIONS.
Nowadays, the DAWN report does not reveal to its readers the absurd assumptions that would reveal its deception. Why? Because of DEA & SAMSHA greed.
Since 2003 when this report was being fabricated, the DEA budget has increased from $1.892 Billion to $3.28 Billion in 2021, almost doubling by this point (https://www.dea.gov/data-and-statistics/staffing-and-budget). But their real bonuses are seizures & forfeitures (eg; >$500Mil in a single year of just cash seizures).3 SAMHSA’s budget has increased from FY 2003 of $3.2 Billion4 to >$10 Billion in 2023, more than tripling.5
So the DEA & SAMSHA stole Billions from taxpayers, including minorities, based on lies, but they did not go to prison for fraud. They are white, get promotions and bonuses, & are called heroes, especially the more people of color they take down.
Instead, the DoJ, DEA, SAMSHA & others blamed successful minorities like doctors as scapegoats to take the fall for their fabricated drug crisis.
OVERDOSE DEATHS INCREASED WHILE PRESCRIPTION NARCOTIC PRESCRIBING VOLUME DROPPED
In fact, although white men comprise the majority of doctors in America, including those who treat pain, BY FAR, the majority of those persecuted by the DEA/DoJ were minorities.6 Even white people were homosexuals, women, serving communities of color, or speaking out against the establishment, which the mainstream whites did not like. Those who were white were those who testified against the medical professionals of color, such as supposed experts who were not actually experts & in many cases, were less qualified than those who they were testifying against.7
There have been ~2,000 medical professionals persecuted by our United States government.8
Meanwhile, while narcotics prescriptions have reduced dramatically, drug abuse, morbidity, & mortality has increased.9 In fact, even though methadone was under complete control by the DEA & only 2% of all painkiller prescriptions, it was responsible for 1/3rd of all deaths.10 So, prescriptions by doctors were never responsible for the drug crisis.
What has been responsible for the drug crisis is the tremendous amount of narcotics being stolen or lost, NOT the prescriptions written by doctors.11 Fentanyl has been responsible for many deaths for many years12, but the DEA has dragged its feet addressing it because each time abuse & deaths increase, so does their budget, seizures, & forfeitures. To this day, the DoJ has done little to curb the theft, loss, & unaccountability of manufacturers & distributors of narcotics while pointing the finger at doctors.
Remember that in Dr. Terence Sasaki, MD’s case, the DoJ/DEA claimed Dr. Sasaki confessed to them in June of 2007 in an unrecorded interrogation but still renewed his DEA narcotics registration, removed the restriction that he could only use it in State/Federal institutions, & only arrested those Dr. Sasaki had warned them about in April of 2010, allowing >1 Million more narcotic pills onto the street.13
DEA: ARMED WITH BADGES, GUNS, AND PROFOUND STUPIDITY
In fact, the DEA has been solely responsible for the drug crisis this entire time. Why? Because they have ultimate control over ALL legal drugs manufactured in the U.S. Since 1973, the DEA has ultimate authority, guaranteed by statute, over how many legal narcotics are manufactured in the U.S.and they regulate or are supposed to regulate every aspect of narcotics.14, 15 So if they tell a manufacturer like Purdue Pharma of the Sackler family that they can only make ten Oxycontins for the year, that’s all Purdue can make. Do you think there would be any deaths from Oxycontins if 330 Million Americans had to share ten pills a year of OxyContin?16
But there was a problem, and the DEA officials were getting golden parachute jobs with the Big Pharm companies after they earned them by allowing pharmaceuticals to manufacture as many narcotics as they wanted.17 In fact, >50 DEA officials have been hired by Big Pharma to ensure the money flow.18
And the Sackler family made Billions.19 Were they forced to pay for their greed? No, they didn’t even face criminal charges because they were white.20 They did pay white politicians & the DoJ/DEA. 21 White people make, sell, & use drugs but don’t go to prison because White makes Right in America.22 All they have to do is blame the minorities for every problem.
SASAKI PRISONER NUMBER 63325-054
Are white people evil? No, or at least not most of them. But they are indisputably in charge of all three branches of the US government,23 and the DoJ, the DEA, & SAMSHA. So whites are solely responsible for the drug epidemic and the biggest profiteers. They also falsely portray themselves as both heroes & victims while deceptively characterizing minorities as the problem & the perpetrators. 24 Until we Americans embrace the truth, the drug epidemic will never end.25
Now, millions of Americans are suffering because they aren’t able to get their pain under control.26 They are resorting to illegal/street narcotics,27 going international, or even committing suicide.28
In fact, it is now accepted science that US government regulation caused the drug epidemic.29 The money-addicted DoJ, DEA, & SAMSHA is now going after Chain Drug Stores to blame them for the crisis.30 But they know that the Chain Drug Stores aren’t responsible either & shutting them down won’t solve the drug crisis because prescription drugs are not responsible. As we have discussed, the DoJ, DEA, & SAMSHA are actually responsible for this crisis & they are taking it to the bank over & over again.
The solution: Change the incentives to SAMSHA, DoJ, & DEA.
For example, make it so DEA employees can only earn bonuses if the drug deaths & addiction rates go down. If you make sure to incentivize government employees to get the desired result, you will get the results you want. Suppose you restrict bonuses to those prison employees with the least recidivism from their inmates being released. In that case, you can guarantee that the rehabilitation programs at those prisons will be top-notch.
Make all seizures/forfeitures go to drug rehabilitation instead of the agencies & those agencies won’t just let crime happen to hope for a big seizure later on. Force all prosecutions of doctors to go through a committee of doctor peers (in other words, not a bunch of nondoctor white men or even rich white doctors who work at hospitals but women & minority docs who practice in the communities). Make a regulation that all agents are allowed only to arrest those of their own ethnicity & sex…you will see the rates of minorities being prosecuted drop rapidly. There are many ways to solve the drug epidemic.
The problem is that those agencies don’t actually want to solve the problem, so they will resist any attempt to change the incentive structure. While patients may be addicted to the drugs, the government is DEFINITELY addicted to the money.31
Think about it, our government can fabricate supposed weapons of mass destruction to invade a country32 (continuing our long country of overthrowing other countries…like the Hawaiian monarchy)33, but we can’t do something about South American drug cartels & their drug-producing fields? Meanwhile, we scold Russia because they invaded Ukraine.34 Americans are the biggest hypocrites in the world.
WHAT TYPE OF REGULATIONS WOULD HELP?
Everyone with a credit card knows they can double-check what purchases have been made on the card. But did you know that a doctor can’t check to see what narcotics have been issued in their DEA registration number? And while people can stop or reverse charges on their credit cards, we don’t know of a mechanism that doctors can use. In fact, when Dr. Sasaki was practicing, a doctor’s DEA certificate could actually be printed out from the internet by anyone.
The DEA could exercise its statutory authority to restrict how many narcotics can be produced, an ability they have had since their inception in 1973 & that would instantly solve the drug crisis. The DEA could reduce the manufacturing quota of any company by twice the amount of drugs that are stolen, lost, or unaccounted for. This would ensure that drug companies are more careful about their distribution channels like warehouses, trucks, & transit.
We could have the DEA decide which patients require narcotics versus are drug-seeking instead of doctors. We as physicians should send our patients to the DEA to get a seal of approval to determine if they are fit for receiving narcotics because tons of DEA have testified as “experts” at our trials, supposedly knowing which patients are & aren’t. If the DEA refuses, we can escape malpractice suits for not treating pain properly. We can simply say that we aren’t drug investigators & are not equipped to ferret out drug diversion, so we can’t prescribe to anyone until they get the A-OK from the DEA. If the patients want, they can sue the DEA in a class action suit under those circumstances.
It does not take a genius to solve the drug crisis. It only takes an honest desire. The above are just a few examples of what we could do.35 The DoJ, DEA, & SAMSHA deliberately fuel the drug epidemic. Remove their ability to fuel it, & it will return to minimal levels.
1Recall that in Dr. Terence Sasaki’s case, no one overdosed or died even if he did prescribe. https://youarewithinthenorms.com/2023/03/11/scandal-at-nyu-medical-false-confession-and-the-hidden-persecution-and-10-years-imprisonment-of-dr-terence-sasaki-md-by-the-us-department-of-justice-and-dea-part-2/

7.In Dr. Terence Sasaki’s case, an OB/GYN John C. Nelson learned pain medicine “on the job” & didn’t even know what schedule the controlled substance in the case was. The DEA Agent Tyler Parkison’s main qualification was working at Walmart. https://youarewithinthenorms.com/2023/03/11/scandal-at-nyu-medical-false-confession-and-the-hidden-persecution-and-10-years-imprisonment-of-dr-terence-sasaki-md-by-the-us-department-of-justice-and-dea-part-2/
16Endorsing such a restriction would not be wise because those who actually need pain meds couldn’t get them but this is just to show that the DEA can titrate the amount to ensure that the drug epidemic ends…they just don’t want to.

23So no actual checks & balances for minorities. Only whites receive actual checks & balances.
25This is not opinion but facts. White fragility is one reason why whites are reluctant to accept that they are the problem. Their acceptance of that fact & steps towards redeeming themselves is the solution. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Fragility; https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/15/magazine/white-fragility-robin-diangelo.html; https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/07/health/white-fragility-robin-diangelo-wellness/index.html

34This is not to say what Russia is doing is ok but that American’s don’t have the right to judge anyone else because we are the biggest villains on the planet. We should concentrate on our own problems instead of judging or blaming others.
