From the wonderful world of pharmaceuticals comes news of a product that has been developed called Zohydro. It has 10 times the potency of Vicodin. TEN TIMES.This drug is being marketed as a drug for those who have chronic pain not eased by the usual narcs. It won't be used as a prn med.
From what I read, some medical board that looks at this stuff for the FDA unanimously recommended against its approval. Twenty eight states in the US have voiced opposition to this along with many people working in treatment centers, police, mental health. But guess what? In its infinite wisdom, the FDA has decided to approve it anyway.
So we are gonna have a drug out there to add to the mix of prescription drugs, heroin, meth and cocaine. The more the merrier right?
People are going to die from this drug. It will get on to the street, there is no doubt. It will be mixed with other drugs and people will overdose and die. They probably won't even make it to the ER.
