Painkillers Killing Our Vets

Painkillers Killing Our Vets

By Keith Johnson

It’s not bad enough that thousands of America’s best and brightest have been wounded fighting wars that are not in the United States’ interests. A new report in an establishment medical journal says many soldiers who return home are getting hooked on highly addictive pain medications that are also being foisted on the general public.

Today, more medical professionals are rising up against Big Pharma, claiming they’ve been reaping vast profits from pushing dangerous painkillers on U.S. patients, especially veterans, who don’t really need them. Among those bringing this issue to the fore is Andrew Kolodny, M.D., co-founder and president of Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing (PROP).
