CNN has a great article out this morning on its’ political ticker.

The most powerful information was on the last line:

Daily, 50 people in our nation die from unintentional prescription opioid overdoses and, daily, 20 times that number are admitted to hospital emergency departments for opioid overdoses,” said John Eadie, director of the Prescription Monitoring Program Center of Excellence at Brandeis University.

That’s a shocking number of deaths and illnesses because of the reckless use of pills.   A good portion of these victim are teens, who think there is little harm in taking a pill.   Of the millions who survive their pill usage, a good portion become addicted to opiates, and they turn to heroin.
