10 months ago our Health Ministry decided to license 31 doctors to dispense Subutex. 500,000 pills later, the Ministry now rules that Subutex is now a controlled drug.
What is Subutex? .....It was suppose to be a drug that helps heroin addicts kick the habit. What is heroin? Heroin was a drug introduced to help drug addicts kick their Morphine habit, it was sold a non-addictive Morphine substitute. What is Morphine? Morphine was introduced to help alcoholics kick their habit. ....Somehow the 101 on history of drug abuse would have indicated that Subutex will be addictive. A simple check on the Internet shows that Subutex can be abused and is highly addictive. Somehow our civil servants at the Ministry of Health did not know ........maybe because they were not allowed to access the Internet to protect them from the negativity contained inside.
1. 580,000 pills of Subutex prescribed.
2. A profit of $15 per pill.
3. Total profits for doctors $8.7M
See how wise our govt has been to hang drug traffickers and rid our society of the drug menace. Not too long ago, a Singaporean was hanged for trafficking 1,029 gms of marijuana - as I understand it 580,000 of abused Subutex pills is thousands of times more harmful than pot.....so who will be hanged for the Subutex saga?
