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.

StoppNow was quoted as saying after the closing of a pill mill because of their efforts “this clinic is closed.  What about the doctors?  Because you can’t have a pill mill without a physician.  They are the root problem.  Florida has failed its citizens.”  Currently StoppNow has to deal with the Florida Board of Medicine (BOM) failing its citizens and contributing to more deaths and addictions.

This past week the BOM announced they have been receiving calls from physicians concerned that pharmacists are not filling prescriptions for opioids if the physician is not listed as a “controlled substance prescriber” on the Department of Health’s website.

So in their obvious ignorance as to the prescription opioid epidemic in Florida, the BOM in defiance to protecting the citizens of their state has announced that physicians that are not treating patients for chronic nonmalignant pain are not required to register and may continue prescribing controlled substances for other diagnoses.

The lack of a designation on the physician profile concerning controlled substances does not necessarily mean that the physician cannot prescribe controlled substances according to the BOM.  Really?  Have you seen the statistics in Florida of the deaths and addictions to controlled substances?  Are you aware BOM that you are losing the battle in the prescription opioid epidemic in Florida?

Fortunately you have heroes in an organization called StoppNow who will be exposing your incompetence and lack of respect for lives in Florida.  Hopefully more residents of Florida will join the efforts of StoppNow and save the lives of citizens in Florida because the Florida Board of Medicine is no more than a Board of “pill pushers.”

Here are members serving on the Florida Board of Medicine who are contributing to the increased rates of prescription opioid addiction and deaths because of their encouraging pill mills in Florida:

LP – See what happens when injectorpods are put in a closet and the door nailed shut?  Life is good and will continue to be good.  Remember who brings them to heaven — and who brings them to hell.  Love you!

skolek-new-photo-700Global News Centre’s Marianne Skolek, is an Investigative Reporter who focuses on the Prescription Opioid/Heroin Epidemic in the U.S. and Canada. In particular, Marianne has covered the criminal marketing of OxyContin going back to 1999 and continuing to the present.

In 2002, Marianne lost her daughter, Jill to prescribed OxyContin which her physician referred to as “mobility in a bottle.” It was, in fact, death in a bottle. After doing extensive research on the maker of OxyContin, Purdue Pharma, Marianne began working with the Department of Justice in Virginia in their criminal investigation into Purdue Pharma and in July 2007 was asked by the U.S. Attorney John Brownlee prosecuting the case to testify against the three CEO’s of Purdue Pharma, Michael Friedman, Paul Goldenheim, MD and Howard Udell, Chief Counsel. The CEO’s pleaded guilty to misleading the medical profession about the dangers of OxyContin. Marianne also testified against Purdue Pharma at a Judiciary Hearing of the U.S. Senate in July 2007.

In addition, a dangerous and highly addictive opioid named Zohydro has been approved by the FDA against their Advisory Committee’s advice and Marianne continues to alert Attorneys General, Senators and Congressmen as to the FDA’s irresponsibility in the out of control prescription opioid/heroin epidemic killing and addicting in the tens of thousands each year. Zohydro has been referred to as “heroin in a capsule” and its lowest dosage (10mg) contains twice as much hydrocodone as found in a Vicodin pill. The highest single dose of Zohydro contains as much hydrocodone as 5 to 10 tablets of Vicodin or Lortab. Zohydro mixed with alcohol can be fatal and has no abuse deterrent built in which will make it easy to crush and deliver a fatal dose of the opioid.

Currently Marianne has been instrumental in calling for the termination of Margaret Hamburg, MD, Commissioner of the FDA as well as Bob A. Rappaport, MD and Douglas Throckmorton, MD for their lack of commitment to safeguarding the American public against the prescription opioid/heroin epidemic. Marianne’s research, writing and contact with government agencies and attorneys has also exposed the heavily funded pain foundations set up by the pharmaceutical industry and their paid physician spokespersons who convinced the medical boards in 50 states and Canada that dangerous opioids such as OxyContin were less likely to be addictive. These physicians — in particular Scott Fishman, MD, J. David Haddox, DDS, MD, Perry Fine, MD, Lynn R. Webster, MD, Russell Portenoy, MD also downplayed the risks of addictive opioids in books as authors. These books are still available for sale and promoted to the medical profession.

Here are links to Marianne’s involvement in exposing the national conspiracy of the prescription opioid/heroin epidemic, the FDA, the pharmaceutical industry, their pain foundations and paid physician spokespersons.
