and if you look at the demographics from 2015 on the CDC website, you will see that the group with the largest number of opioid-related deaths occurred in the age 25-24 age group with 8,568 deaths. Conversely, the over 55 group was 6,277. Yep, you read that right, it is NOT the elderly, but the YOUNG who are OD'ing on this crap for a "high." https://www.kff.org/other/state-indicator/opioid-overdose-deaths-by-age-group

So where are they getting them? Robbing Grandma? From street dealers? Or from Rx-happy doctors, paid by Big Pharma to peddle their poison as much as possible? Once we lock THAT down, we MIGHT have a chance of actually being able to at least slow down the OD-related deaths somewhat.
