“A Georgia psychiatrist was arrested during a DEA raid after he was accused of running a pill mill resulting in the deaths of more than 30 patients,” UPI reports. “Dr. Narendra Nagareddy was linked to the death of 36 of his patients, 12 of whom died from overdoses of prescription medication.”
“He’s charged with prescribing pain medication which is outside his profession as a psychiatrist and not for a legitimate purpose for the patient,” said Clayton County District Attorney Tracy Graham Lawson.
Opiates are psychotropic drugs.
Psychotropic drugs- relating to or denoting drugs that affect a person’s mental state.
305.50 Opioid use disorder, Mild
304.00 Opioid use disorder, Moderate
292.0 Opioid withdrawal
“Former and current patients have admitted to obtaining controlled substance prescriptions from Dr. Nagareddy without having a legitimate medical need,”
Technically no psychiatric drugs are for a medical need that’s why they are called psychiatric drugs and not medical drugs.
The district attorney’s office said they also filed a RICO civil action to seize Nagareddy’s assets.
Here’s an interesting factoid about contemporary policing: In 2014, for the first time ever, law enforcement officers took more property from American citizens than burglars did. Martin Armstrong pointed this out at his blog, Armstrong Economics, last week.
Officers can take cash and property from people without convicting or even charging them with a crime — yes, really! — through the highly controversial practice known as civil asset forfeiture.
Just legalize drugs already, the war on drugs, asset forfeiture schemes, road safety schemes, school zero tolerance policies, private prisons… Give us a break already.
Under cover of the war on drugs, the nation’s police forces have been transformed into extensions of the military, with SWAT team raids carried out on unsuspecting homeowners for the slightest charge, and police officers given carte blanche authority to shoot first and ask questions later.
And don’t they bust down the door of the elementary school and arrest the nurse for giving children Amphetamines if they care so much ?
Why did no one goto jail after the Risperdal scandal ?
Obama Seeks $1 Billion to Fight Heroin Epidemic
TIME-10 hours ago
“The budget would also call for $500 million worth of investments in prescription-drug monitoring programs at the state level”
$500,000,000 for some psycho big brother computer program … Five hundred million dollars. That could send 50,000 people without insurance to rehab. Standard drug treatment facilities cost between $10,000 and $20,000 per month. They could “buy in bulk” and send 100,000 addicts to treatment.
The U.S. federal government spent over $15 billion dollars in 2010 on the War on Drugs, at a rate of about $500 per second. Source: Office of National Drug Control Policy. State and local governments spent at least another 25 billion dollars. Drug War Clock http://www.drugsense.org/wodclock.htm
$40 billion dollars . Standard drug treatment facilities cost between $10,000 and $20,000 per month.
$40,000,000,000 / 10,000 = Send 4,000,000 million people to treatment.
According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), in 2012 about 669,000 Americans reported using heroin in the past year.
Keep drinking the “war on drugs” cool aid America. Have fun.
Q: What is your approach to the “Drug War”?
CLINTON: I have spoken out on my belief that we should have drug courts that would serve as alternatives to the traditional criminal justice system for low-level offenders. If the person comes before the court, agrees to stay clean, is subjected to drug tests once a week, they are diverted from the criminal justice system.
OK Hillary Fascist Clinton but there is only one problem they call it addiction because its so difficult to stay “clean”.
The Clinton plan is just more of the same but first addicts get to be a cash cow for the state paying all the fees for the drug testing before most of them fail and goto jail for a wile anyway before they come out traumatized and turn to drugs for relief.
Ten Ways the War On Drugs Violates the U.S. Constitution
Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall once summed up the drug war by reminding his fellow justices that “there is no drug exception to the Constitution.”
This is so messed up.
