Blame "Big Pharma"
(capitalists)
They promote drugs that make profits and addict the public.
While they back laws against harmless substances like pot.

If nothing is done, we can expect a lot of people to die: A forecast by STAT concluded that as many as 650,000 people will die over the next 10 years from opioid overdoses — more than the entire city of Baltimore. The US risks losing the equivalent of a whole American city in just one decade.

That would be on top of all the death that America has already seen in the course of the ongoing opioid epidemic. In 2016, more than 64,000 people died of drug overdoses in America — with synthetic opioids (such as fentanyl), heroin, and common opioid painkillers (like Percocet and OxyContin) topping other causes of overdose, according to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s a higher death toll than guns, car crashes, and HIV/AIDS ever killed in one year in the US, and a higher death toll than all US military casualties in the Vietnam and Iraq wars combined.

In response, President Donald Trump on Thursday will declare a public health emergency over the opioid crisis.

If you want to understand how we got here, there’s one simple explanation: It’s much easier in America to get high than it is to get help.
Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured. Mark Twain

Stan, you're holding a gun to God's head. I can't think of a metaphor that's better than this.
