Since heroin gets lumped into the opioid epidemic mix that means that those with a pain medication prescription are automatically lumped into a group that includes criminals. Ask anyone with chronic pain and they will tell you how they are routinely treated like a criminal by doctors, pharmacists and society because of how skewed the opioid problem is presented.
Secondly, there is no "war on drugs". No one is doing shit about it. There are government officials and police who are in the drug dealers' pockets, supporting the distribution of illegal drugs. No one is doing anything about it. They just like to say they are.
