Rate of Pharmaceutical Drug Abuse Grew Significantly in Recent Years

The AP reports, “The rate of pharmaceutical drug abuse has grown significantly in recent years, police say. In fact, more Americans abuse prescription drugs than cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens, Ecstasy and inhalants combined, according to the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators.” In short, “teens swipe painkillers from a relative’s medicine chest; home health workers pocket pills when sitting with elderly patients who can’t care for themselves; or a nursing home employee steals pills from residents and resells them.”

From the American Association for Justice news release.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
