I've been working in a pharmacy for about a year now. I see all kinds of prescriptions, so let me tell you some trends I've noticed.
First, every child is on adderall. Literally all of them. High strength adderall. I process probably close to 400 in total a day. I'd say about 250 is prescriptions for young children to be put on a behavioral control. When I say young, I mean I've seen kids as young as 3 being put on high strength adderall. They're fucking kids for christ sakes. I also get to look through the patients history to see what they've been taking, and most kids under 15 have been on adderall for well over half their life. A typical script is for a month supply, high strength, mostly twice a day. Then they come back next month for the same thing. They're drugging kids to stay in line.
Second, opioids. This kind of prescription is the main thing I process every day. 1 in 3 is usually Oxycodone, Suboxone ("helps" addicts get off their addiction, except it's highly addictive itself), Norco, or a variant. The suboxone scripts are fun because you can see doctors who aid their patients in abusing pain killers. I've seen month long pain prescriptions be taken in 10 days, and somehow the doctor sends a refill. So they get another script. Most of these patients are being prescribed for "back pains" or "unspecified pain". Doctors are at the forefront of the opioid crisis. I've seen 12 year olds get high strength morphine that aren't on hospice for "ankle pains". You can look through the histories and see that most people getting pain killers have been on pain killers for years. Again, drugging the population to stay in line. Most pain killer abusers are 18-40.
I know I'm a conspiracy nut but working here makes me honestly believe there are efforts to sedate the population. I'm just 1 person processing this many prescriptions, so I'd imagine everyone sees the same numbers I do. A large portion of our population is drugged.
I blame the jews.
Edit: I work Data Entry. By 400 I mean 400 prescriptions roughly. High strength addy is (to me) 40 mg twice a day. This doesn't violate hippa but I work in a liberal paradise so I won't go into details of where I work. It is a high population area in Indiana. There's also about 100 of us in this specific job busting out numbers closeish to mine.
