What does the opioid epidemic and 💉 have in common?

Different pandemic, same creator.

If there were ever a time to question the mainstream public health narrative, this is it.

Excuse while we throw on the tin foil hat for a minute. 

It’s safe to say the last year and a half has been tough for many. For the companies selling prescription, opioid medication? Not so tough. For the companies making vaccines? Not so tough.

Here are two incredibly concerning and questionable truths.

One. Some of the largest companies selling opioid medications, responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths, are the same companies producing vaccines.

Two. Some of these companies have horrendous track records manipulating the media, bribing doctors, researchers and federal regulators, creating deceitful schemes to ramp up sales of deadly opioid based medications.

This is big pharma and capitalism gone wrong.

“Hunter wrapped up a two-month long trial of the pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson that shed new light on the extent of the pharmaceutical industry’s complicity in driving the US opioid crisis, which has claimed more than 400,000 lives. Oklahoma’s attorney general accused the company of a “cunning, cynical and deceitful scheme” to ramp up narcotic painkiller sales as one of a web of firms that created the biggest drug epidemic in American history as profits surged. The companies worked in step to change medical culture and practice by influencing doctors, researchers, federal regulators and politicians.”

There has been a massive increase in opioid use throughout the US in 2020. We can assume a similar narrative here in Australia. An already huge problem has grown, thanks in part to quarantine and the accompanying stresses.

Cannabis presents as an incredible, potential alternative to pharmaceutical medications and opioids. 

We’re going to dig into the Australian statistics more over the next week so we can create a more comprehensive article with stronger references. 

We’d also like to mention that over the coming months we’re releasing video content and tutorials to our audience showing you how to make your own cannabis medicine at home – CBD oil and other popular recipes. Stay tuned for that.

Do your own research, question everything.

For those of you interested, here are a few resources I found enlightening.

    It’s extremely disappointing to receive anti-vax garbage in my inbox at a time when our country desperately needs herd immunity so our health systems don’t collapse, our loved ones don’t die alone in horrifying numbers, and small businesses don’t continue to collapse because they can’t open.

      Hi there. The article wasn’t intended to be anti-vaccine. We were pointing out that companies pushing harmful opioid medications with tens of thousands of law suits against them for repeatedly breaking the law and manipulating the media are unfortunately the same ones making the vaccine.
