• Valium is grossly overprescribed and doctors are partly responsible for the prescription drug addiction epidemic.
  • Magic mushroom use generally causes feelings of nausea before the desired mental effects appear.
  • Opioid and opiate overdoses in the U.S., once almost always heroin-related, are now more commonly as result of abuse of prescription painkillers.
  • Methadone used in opiate maintenance therapy was originally developed to help obliterate withdrawal symptoms and support a healthy lifestyle. However, the effects of withdrawal far exceed that of heroin which causes the individual to become addicted to it instead.
