I just read that Christie will be heading the opioid commission. I thought his actions in New Jersey were an overreaction that punished responsible prescibers and patients for the failures of the careless and the addiction prone.
We do have a drug problem in this nation, not just opioids. The drug companies have a stranglehold on our over medicated nation. The first thing that needs to go is direct to consumer advertising that started under Reagan, and helped create the problems we have today.
I don't have much faith that the government, nor either political party, has the guts to get to the root of this problem.
