    I figure it would be a great boon to terminal patients who want to end their lives.

    The FDA has approved the rollout of a new opioid drug up to 1000 times stronger than morphine, despite the opioid crisis that is currently killing more Americans than any other cause of accidental death.



    The agency sided with its Anesthetic and Analgesic Advisory Panel, which voted 10-3 to approve Dsuvia, a sublingual tablet form of sufentanil, against the recommendation of its chairman. At 5-10 times the strength of fentanyl, sufentanil is 500-1000 times stronger than morphine, and will supposedly only be administered to treat acute pain in medically-supervised settings.


    Fentanyl, too, is available only by prescription, yet a significant quantity is manufactured in illegal labs or diverted to the street, where it regularly kills opioid addicts who aren’t even aware they are taking it.



    Dsuvia is fulfilling an “unmet need,” says Dr Pamela Palmer, chief medical officer of AcelRx, which makes the drug. Because the drug dissolves under patients’ tongues, it provides quick relief without the use of an injection. Still, because it must be delivered in a medical setting and doctors and nurses are trained to give injections, there are relatively few situations in which it offers an advantage that outweighs the risk of unleashing a powerful new narcotic onto an already drug-saturated populace.


    The Department of Defense had a hand in funding the research that produced Dsuvia, which could replace morphine on the battlefield due to its ease of administration. AcelRx projects $1.1 billion in annual sales and hopes to have its product on hospital shelves by early 2019.

    Well, I thought the current mindset was OPPOSITION to "banning drugs." FedGov has no authority, yada yada.

    I suspect the FDA was presented with positive clinical tests and indications, and approved it on that basis. Was obligated to approve it on that basis - since the FDA is not a moral gatekeeper, but only an agency to keep quack medicines like Laetrile off the market.

    Plenty of drugs can be misused and cause death. Even antibiotics...we got strong strains of gonorrhea from smart-guys taking penicillin BEFORE exposing themselves to VD. Thinking they'd be immune.

    As it turned out, it doesn't work like that; and a lot of people had to suffer, maybe a few die, of that. And the first generation of antibiotics rendered useless for such infections.

    And others.

    IMHO, there's gonna be a real desire to get off the planet painlessly, as this Leftist Utopia unfolds. The Hussein legacy moves forward: It's been impossible to save for retirement, given ZIRP. A whole decade of compound-interest lost. Inflation HAS HAPPENED - it just hasn't percolated down into consumer prices. The Dow and S&P are where this inflation, this wholesale printing of money without any wealth to back it...that is why those prices, and land prices, and prices of luxury goods, are up.

    Soon food and necessities will start to launch.

    Pension funds bankrupt; no return on IRAs/401(k)s; GUBBERMIINT medical care - which will be DENIAL of care. And the nation teeming with Bedouins and Central American illiterate racialists. People with education don't wind up as hospital orderlies or nursing-home staff.

    No...a natural end is not going to be a pleasant one, in the future. We'll each need to figure out how we're going to get off, and what will be our limits.

    A bullet to the head is messy, and not always even fatal. Jumping off a tall building takes incredible will.

    That's good to know. I'm not surprised to hear it.

    You're missing the point, on purpose it seems. The FDA approves a drug that can produce a fatal OD pretty easily while attempting to ban an herbal product that can't even be shown to be toxic at any dosage. As usual, you're on both sides of your own argument.

    Nope. I'm consistent.

    The problem with recreational drugs is not, repeat NOT what it does to the abuser's health. Those I could care less about - which is why I don't give three shits and a fuck about tobacco or booze.

    The PROBLEM is the zombies who are, very-healthy, yet chemically retarded from their choom fog.

    One person like that, is not noticeable. A small percentage, an irritant.

    Huge numbers, and we get...what we have today. And as the users build in percentage, as pot is mainstreamed...we wind up with Idiocracy.

    Which of course was a black-comedic farce. What we'll REALLY become, is Pakistan or Zimbabwe. Crumbling infrastructure and no one with intelligence or drive enough to maintain it, much less expand on it.

    We have, or had, our choice. Allow drug use and disallow drug users from voting, living off welfare payments, endangering others on roads, or other acts. Restrict those things to persons who test negative for drugs.

    Or else, ban drugs.

    Well, the Fuddrel Kangaroos decided for us. We can not keep the stupid or the stupified out of polls or off welfare rolls. Not even out of cars.

    And now, the misnamed War on Drugs, is going the way of all defensive pushes. Failure.

    We will indeed become Pakistan.
