Opioid Overdose Crisis

Every day, more than 130 people in the United States die after overdosing on opioids.1 The misuse of and addiction to opioids—including prescription pain relievers, heroin, and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl used to help relieve severe ongoing pain —is a serious national crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare.

The Podcast

And so, I was fascinated with this podcast because I often encountered narcotic seeking patients while in city center and urban practice. It was recorded by my neighbor and Austrian economist Peter Raymond over at “The Free Man Beyond the Wall” website.

Colleague Dr. Mark Thornton recently gave this talk at the Mises Institute Supporters Summit on the opioid crisis that is plaguing the US. Dr. Thornton lays out a short history of this tragic epidemic that is taking lives every day. He addresses how doctors prescribe these drugs, how government regulates them and explains what happens when people are forced into the “black market” to sustain their addiction.
