    If you believe  BigPharma wants you to be healthy, you're not paying attention.  It's easy to understand why they also have little interest in removing cannabidiols from the Controlled Substances Act. 

    Amid Opioid Crisis, Insurers Restrict Pricey, Less Addictive Painkillers

    At a time when the United States is in the grip of an opioid epidemic, many insurers are limiting access to pain medications that carry a lower risk of addiction or dependence, even as they provide comparatively easy access to generic opioid medications. The reason, experts say: Opioid drugs are generally cheap while safer alternatives are often more expensive.

    Leaked: Transcript of Trump’s United Nations Speech  (Satire)

    Many people don’t realize this, but there are 193 nations in the UN. 193. Maybe 192 now with what happened to Antigua and Barbuda. Or would it be 191? I never know if that is two countries or just one. It’s like the Dakotas. Many people don’t know there are two of them, North and South. North. And South. But back to Antigua and Barbuda, which frankly, I always thought were pronounced Antilles and Bermuda, but they’re not. It’s awful what happened to them, with Hurricane whatshername. I understand their pain. I own an estate on St. Martin. Did you know that? Unscathed in the storm because, believe me, I know how to build things. St. Martin is beautiful. I love it. It used to be the 61st largest island in the Carribbean, but now with what’s happened to Antigua, it’s 60th. Probably 60th. See that, Secretary? I had to say probably because of the fake news.
