Rave Parties and the Anti-Narcotics Law

The US CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report of January 13, 2012 reported that since 2003 more overdose deaths have involved opioid analgesics than heroin and cocaine combined. The narcotic opioid analgesic drugs, manufactured by the pharmaceutical companies, approved by the government and prescribed by registered medical practitioners, has become the number one killer in the USA. The crisis is so large that last month USA even had its first National Rx Drugs Abuse Summit. But the common man is kept in the dark about this crisis for nearly a decade. And the irony is that the law enforcement agencies are using the Anti-Narcotics Law to target drug-users but not the pharmaceutical drug manufacturers and peddlers.
