Those drugs — whose effects are more are less akin to heroin’s — are supposed to be used to treat cancer patients and those recovering from serious injuries. But they’re terribly addictive. And now, a growing portion of society’s drug addicts are hooked not just on meth, cocaine, and heroin, but also drugs with an FDA stamp of approval.
But why is it growing?
I am attempting to answer that for an upcoming story. But if any of you have your opinions or experiences with this, I am all ears.
