The drug was altered in various ways, and the participants were asked whether they liked the drug and would use it again. Most said they would not.

(MYRTLE BEACH) FDA advisory committee strikes again and recommended approval of Vantrela ER (Teva Pharmaceuticals), a new hydrocodone bitartrate extended-release tablet with abuse-deterrent capabilities. As the U.S. is fighting a devastating epidemic of prescription opioid/heroin addictions and deaths, the FDA approves yet another opioid. Maybe someone should ask the FDA “how many opioids does it take to devastate every state in the country?” The US is #1 in the world in opioid use followed closely by Canada.

(MYRTLE BEACH)  Target Stores have been promoting a “Spritz Halloween Syringe Pen” for sale in their “family” stores all over the country.  (Photo of syringe pens are shown).  When I learned of Target’s outrageous retail practice of profiting from a drug epidemic which is resulting in deaths and addictions in the tens of thousands, I emailed the following to John Mulligan, Executive VP:

Have you seen the statistics in Florida of the deaths and addictions to controlled substances?

(MYRTLE BEACH)   There is an organization of ordinary citizens operating out of Florida called StoppNow.  Here is a link to their website http://stoppnow.com/?page_id=252.  These ordinary citizens recognize that pill mills operating out of storefront buildings are warehouses of prescription opioids who are dispensing pills to hopelessly addicted people lined up outside the storefront pill mills.  So StoppNow organizes picket lines in front of the pill mills calling attention to law enforcement and the D.E.A. that people are dying and families torn apart because of these pill mills.  Ordinary citizens saving lives — heroes in every sense of the word.

To: Canada — Should Lynn R. Webster, MD be serving on your prescription opioid advisory panel?

(MYRTLE BEACH)    An organization in Canada called “Get Prescription Drugs Off the Street” aka GPDOTS.com (website www.GPDOTS.com) headed by Amy Graves recently wrote a letter to the Canadian Minister of Health.  A copy of their letter can be viewed here: https://www.scribd.com/doc/271952270/Gp-Dots-Pharma-Letter-Nova-Scotia-71015

GPDOTS has justifiable concern as they reference “Pharmaceutical marketing and their conflicts of interest in Canada.”  They cite the influence pharmaceutical companies have on Canadian physicians with troubling guidelines and regulatory bodies.

“Sowing the Wind” at Los Alamos and “Reaping the Whirlwind” at Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Chernobyl, Three Mile Island and Fukushima”

(DULUTH) 70 years ago this week (July 16, 1945), an assortment of foreign scientists, the original group of which were mostly refugees fleeing European fascism, succeeded in exploding the first experimental atomic bomb.

The site of detonation of the plutonium bomb (which was essentially identical to the one that ambushed and destroyed Nagasaki a few weeks later on August 9) was in the desert outside Alamogordo, New Mexico. The site of the blast was to become blasphemously known as the Trinity Site. Trinity was the code name for the experiment and the Manhattan Project was the code name for the US Army’s secret project to develop atomic bombs, with the stated intent to use them against military targets in Nazi Germany. That is, until Germany surrendered before any of the bombs were ready to launch.
