Bad part of town, bad habit. We (the US) represent about 4% of the world's population. We eat about 80% of the the oxycontin. With FL dispensing about as much as the rest of the country combined. Hillbilly heroine, it`s called. And for good reason.
The US also pays for almost all of the world`s drug research. It`s time we instituted a national formulary for all medicines bought with Medicare, Medicaid and/or other state or federal dollars, which includes our veterans and active duty hospitals. The bill is ridiculous.
