 8/12/17 - Are safeguards already in place?


Are we a nation that is lulled into a sense of security by our governments and agencies? We abide by the laws put in place to prevent problems and then when a problem arises it seems to be deflected as to a new problem.

Correct me if Im wrong, but dont doctors and the AMA have safeguards and systems they put in place to prevent prescription problems? I would think that with all the work that goes into maintaining our database with name, address, prescription and doctor who prescribes it would be helpful in determining where a problem exists?

How did we get to a problem that needs $5 billion and more dollars to correct? Why do we have drugs that are so powerful and addictive approved for use by the FDA? Are all the safeguards in place just for show or what?

Confused by government do's and donts for no reason.
