“While Americans are coping with the same amount of pain as ever, opioid prescriptions have quadrupled since 1999. The availability of opioids, despite the high risks of addiction and overdose, has made them popular as medical treatments and recreational drugs.

The opioid epidemic claims as many lives as 9/11 every three weeks. The CDC estimates that the abuse of powerful prescription painkillers costs the economy more than $78.5 billion annually.” – litigationconferences.com
