Happy #EarthDay! Join START as we work through initiatives like our recycling program to protect our planet. Because the #OpioidEpidemic has at least two things in common with environmental protection: it affects all of us, and any solution will have to involve EVERYONE.

The movement for legalization on a national level in the USA is picking up steam. And according to Bloomberg in states that legalized marijuana for medical or recreational purposes, opioid prescriptions fell substantially and opioid overdoses fell too... #cannabis #opioid #medicalmarijuana #legalization #marijuana

One year after new regulations issued, Delaware opioid prescriptions and quantities dispensed continue to drop -
-
DOVER, Del. – The number of prescriptions for opioid medications in Delaware, as well as the total quantity of opioids dispensed, have dropped significantly in the 12 months since the Department of State enacted stricter prescribing regulations to help combat the opioid crisis statewide.
Statistics from the Division of Professional Regulation (DPR), which licenses controlled substance prescribers, show 14 percent fewer prescriptions for opioids were written by Delaware practitioners in the first quarter of 2018 compared to the first quarter of 2017. The Division also reports an 18-percent decline in the total quantity of opioids dispensed to patients over the same period.
“The opioid epidemic continues to ravage families across our state and our nation, but numbers like these show that the public policies we have put in place are having a positive impact,” said Gov. John Carney. “Health care practitioners in Delaware are partners in the shared effort to overcome this crisis, and we are seeing the results of changes in prescribing practices that will, without question, save lives across our state.”
The regulations, which took effect April 1, 2017, were designed to help prescribers more closely monitor and control the use of opioids by their patients. Six months after the regulations were implemented, statistics showed a 12-percent drop in opioid prescriptions and an 8-percent drop in the number of Delawareans receiving prescriptions.
“Fewer prescriptions written and fewer pills dispensed mean fewer chances for Delawareans to become addicted to opioids, or for these dangerous drugs to be diverted for illegal use,” said Secretary of State Jeff Bullock. “The regulations we enacted last year to put limits on opioid prescriptions seem to be working. We hope that in the long term these trends will mean a reduction in opioid addiction and deaths.”

@freedom_faction - Every day, more than 100 #Americans die in the #UnitedStates from #opioid overdoses, and while this epidemic has become increasingly devastating in recent years, a natural plant that has been shown to combat opioid #addiction is still deemed “illegal” by the federal government.

According to research from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, as of March 2018, “more than 115 people in the United States die after overdosing on opioids.” These overdoses can be attributed to prescription pain medications, which are prescribed like candy with little warning about how dangerously addictive they are; #heroin, which many addicts turn to when they lose access to prescription opioids; and #fentanyl, which has become increasingly popular despite its deadly track record.

The rise of the opioid epidemic at home has coincided with the United States’ control of poppy production worldwide. Before the U.S. invaded #Afghanistan in 2001, there were around 189,000 heroin users in the United States. By 2016, that number had increased dramatically to 4.5 million users. The longest war in the nation’s history has resulted in the U.S. controlling 90 percent of the world’s opium supply.

If the U.S. wanted to decrease opium production in Afghanistan, it has the power to do so. But instead, #PresidentTrump has pledged to spend “the most money ever” fighting the ongoing opioid epidemic, while no one in his administration is proposing any legitimate solutions, and the officials who are paid to propose solutions have direct ties to the pharmaceutical companies that helped cause the crisis in the first place.

The government claims it can end the epidemic at the same time it is encouraging it by criminalizing a natural plant has been shown to combat opioid addiction. A study published in August 2017 found that when participants used #cannabidiol (#CBD), it actually blocked the opioid reward in their brains, and as a result, “The finding that cannabidiol blocks opioid reward suggests that this compound may be useful in addiction treatment settings.” 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾

One of the goals of @uscedu's research was to "successfully predict, based on medical history, whether a patient is susceptible to developing an addiction to opioid-based pain medication before physicians ever prescribe it." Learn more: http://ow.ly/tikb30jv1sH -

Mobilizing an International Response to the Opioid Crisis: U.S. Acts Through the United Nations -
-
Last month in Vienna, countries met during the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) to tackle the world’s most pressing drug-control challenges. These include, as we in the United States know all too well, the great threats posed by synthetic opioids such as fentanyl and its analogues. During this important global gathering, the United States called on countries to implement innovative options for combating the opioid crisis at the international level.
I played a part in the action going on in Austria, serving on the interagency U.S. delegation to the CND. Part of my role was to lead international negotiations of a U.S. sponsored resolution aimed at mobilizing an international response to the opioid crisis. The resolution would focus international efforts more sharply on the threats presented by the new paradigm in drug trafficking, a paradigm which is fueling tragedy in American communities.
In this new reality, international criminal organizations trafficking in drugs are evading international controls by creating synthetic drugs that are mirror images of legal, controlled substances. Traffickers are also exploiting the online market through open and dark net sites, and then trafficking these substances through the international mail. What’s more, these substances are shipped in small quantities – a couple milligrams, for example – making these packages difficult for law enforcement and regulatory officials to identify and intercept. During negotiations of this resolution, I was successful in securing international acknowledgment of this new paradigm, and commitment from countries, including China, Mexico, and the European Union, to take action to combat these threats.

“In the past, we thought of #opioid abuse and #addiction as a problem of urban blight. But in recent years, it has become very much a problem of rural America and suburbia.” -Dr. @CelineGounder on #ISIHpodcast. #OpioidCrisis #HarmReduction Listen here: buff.ly/2qOF5Ex
