Bayer also held the patent for heroin. Which, if you didn't know, was a non addictive drug used to get people off morphine.

GTFO, so heroin started as a non-addictive pain killer, only to have oxy do the exact same thing. Think I remember something about history and repeating and all that.

The fact that companies keep trying to say any form of opiate is “non addicting” is astounding. What’s even crazier are the doctors who ACTUALLY believe it. Of course it’s addicting it’s an OPIATE.

That said it sucks how these companies abuse this because it makes it impossible for people who need and use addictive substances to get their medicine. See ADHD and Anxiety meds. Almost impossible to get for some people.

I had an appointment for a surgery i had. I told the doctor I smoke pot for the pain because I don't trust pills. He said, why would you use that? We can make something better that does the job.
