    I don't see one single opioid being advertised on TV.

    America has a big opioid problem because drug companies pushed doctors to prescribe oxycodone to patients for financial gain. Jesus did say that a poor man is more likely to get into heaven then a rich man. Just saying.

    The United States is fairly unique in the we allow drug manufacturers to advertise directly to non-prescribers (consumers). Civilized nations only allow pharmaceutical companies to advertise to prescribers.

    The drug problem is with pain killing drugs, not the drugs advertised on TV which are usually for high blood pressure, erectile dysfunction and allergies.

    Because the ones advertised are not the problem. Are you really that dumb?

    Do you ever see advertisements for fentanyl?

    They don't care about drug addiction, what they do care about is trying to control the drug trade, since the government doesn't like competition and they want you buying and taking their drugs, oh yea and filling up prisons for profit

    Can I racially identify as green skinned? Eventhough my skin color is white I believe it to be green and as such I must be believed and accepted.
