We often hear of well known celebrities like Michael Jackson and 27 year old Amy Winehouse dying unexpectedly of suspected drug misuse. The reality is that drug deaths are not just an isolated tragedy for celebrities. According to the LA Times narcotics abuse – legal or otherwise – is now responsible for killing more Americans than car crashes. The LA Times notes that 37,485 deaths were caused by drug use in 2009, in contrast to 36,284 Americans killed in car crashes. This is explained by the increase in car safety features, combined with an ever increasing pill popping culture. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration revealed this year that opioid abuse increased by 111% between 2004 and 2008, with more than 2 million Americans admitting to abusing drugs each year. How many more don’t admit it! Now prescription drug-related deaths surpass fatalities caused by cocaine and heroin abuse combined. Deaths linked to OxyContin, Valium and Xanax abuse have doubled in the last decade. Drugs have become a ‘Legitimised Coping Mechanism’ “People feel they are safer with prescription drugs because you get them from a pharmacy and they are prescribed by a doctor,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Opferman says to The Times.
