  2. Norihiro Fujito:

    As long as there is speculation about intervention, speculators may test whether the BOJ may actually act, so we are bracing for another sell-off in stocks, if the BOJ acts, it may serve as a short-term 'painkiller' but the effect will likely be short-lived.

  3. Antonio Brown:

    Because of my commitment to the game, I relented to pressure directly from my coach to play injured. Despite the pain, I suited up, the staff injected me with what I now know was a powerful and sometimes dangerous painkiller that the NFLPA has warned against using, and I gave it my all for the team. I played until it was clear that I could not sue my ankle to safely perform my playing responsibilities. On top of that, the pain was extreme, i took a seat on the sideline and my coach came up to me, very upset, and shouted, ‘ What’s wrong with you ? What’s wrong with you ? ’ I told him, ‘ It’s my ankle. ’ But he knew that. It was well-documented and we had discussed it. He then ordered me to get on the field. I said, ‘ Coach I ca n’t. ’ He did n’t call for medical attention. Instead, he shouted at me, ‘ YOU ’RE DONE ! ’ while he ran his finger across his throat. Coach was telling me that if I did n’t play hurt, then I was done with the Bucs.

  4. John Martin:

  5. Grant Woods:

    This is something that we've seen across the country from the most educated, most sophisticated patient to the least, and we're talking a matter of days not a matter of weeks or months or years. They knew—certainly should have known—that they were going to leave in their wake devastation across this country. Some believe prescription painkiller makers should have known how highly addictive their products were. (Reuters) Woods is helping Ohio sue several prescription painkiller manufacturers and is consulting with several others on their upcoming litigation against the same companies. The basis for their litigation is nearly identical to the strategy used by states against Big Tobacco in the 1990s. Both manufactured a product they allegedly knew to be highly addictive but downplayed the risk to the public. Once hooked, states bore the treatment cost of the resulting public health epidemic. INDIANA MAN KILLS DOCTOR WHO REFUSED TO PRESCRIBE WIFE OPIOIDS I think the responsibility goes to the doctors, goes to the medical rep, goes to the pharmaceutical companies, said Dr. Howard Samuels, founder of The Hills addiction treatment center in Los Angeles. Fox News spoke to several patients at Samuels’ in-patient facility. All of them told a similar story of receiving a painkiller prescription from their physician for anywhere from 60 to 120 pills of powerful opioids like Oxycontin, Vicodin or Norco. The cause of their pain ranged from an auto accident to a broken ankle. My back – I crushed the bottom three vertebrae, then they prescribed me Oxycontin, said a former high school football player from Ohio. A woman from New Jersey added, I was getting 120 oxy a month. When I told him my pain persisted after a few hours, he upped by dosage. Another patient started on Vicodin, but got so addicted he would buy any type of opioid he could find. The White House Office for National Drug Control Policy says 80 percent of heroin users today started their addiction when doctors prescribed pain killers. (Reuters) A doctor is the best drug dealer you can ever get, said the native Angeleno. Once he knew I had the cash I could get anything. My first prescription was $300, and about $150 a week after that. And when one pharmacy started to get suspicious, he told me where to go. TRUMP'S OPIOID COMMISSION CAN HELP KEEP DEADLY DRUGS OUT OF AMERICA While there is plenty of blame to go around, the 25 lawsuits already filed share similar allegations: - Deceptive ads suggesting opioids were effective treating chronic pain like back injuries; - marketing that downplayed the risk of addiction; - undisclosed use of paid doctors to promote the benefits of opioids - use of front groups to.
