Response to Yo_Mama_Been_Loggin (Original post)

2. Years ago, if I remember correctly, it was the then East Germany that led

 

the world in the use of drugs that suppressed pain and consciousness of misery.

What is it in our society that is so painful and that pushes people to want even at the cost of dying to try to avoid that pain?

That is the question we need to ask ourselves.

And by the way, maybe I'm just too old and oblivious, but I am not aware of opioid abuse in Los Angeles. It seems to be more prevalent in the areas that voted for Trump like Southern Ohio where lots of conservatives live.
