• In the year of 2013, an estimated 24.6 million Americans of the age of 12 or older, (9.4 percent of the population to be exact), had used an illicit drug in the past month alone. The statistics for 2015 is even more concerning, with the numbers actually breaking ten percent of the adult population in fact.
• The tragedy with drug and alcohol abuse and addiction is happening right now and it is happening in a very bad way too. In truth, 750,000 people actually do die in the United States every year, although not from plane crashes or car crashes or something like that. They die from something far more common and rarely perceived by the public as dangerous: modern medicine and namely prescription drugging. This is a huge problem in California.
• There’s a pretty big conspiracy going on in the United States when it comes to prescription drugs. Pharmaceutical companies spend over $2 billion sending doctors to more than 314,000 events every single year. While doctors are riding the dollar of pharmaceutical companies, enjoying all the many perks of these so called,” events," how likely are they to question the validity of drug companies or their products and pills? Probably not that likely. Hence the tens of thousands of deaths annually from these pills, thousands of which occur in California.
