Best Small Cap Stocks To Own For 2019

Opiates are incredibly potent pain relievers for patients with severe traumatic pain or dealing with end-of-life care, but they are also being increasingly abused. Robert Brooke, the CEO of small cap Vitality Biopharma, Inc. (OTCQB: VBIO), which is dedicated to the development of cannabinoid prodrug pharmaceuticals and to unlocking the power of cannabinoids for the treatment of serious neurological and inflammatory disorders, has recently written an article entitled: What We Should Know About Opiates and Prescription Drug Abuse.

In the article, Brooke noted a number of interesting statistics about opiates and opiate abuse:

Last year, there were 47,055 Americans that died from drug overdoses, and opioids were involved in 61% of these cases. Since 2013, the rates of drug-overdose deaths have exceeded the number of deaths from car accidents. The U.S. uses 80% of the world’s opioids, while representing only 4.6% of the world’s population. In a movement towards aggressive management of pain, there has been a 10-fold increase in the medical use of opioids in the last 20 years. More than 2.4 million Americans now have a severe opioid-use disorder, which includes dependence on heroin and also prescription opiate drugs that are known by many names. Studies have shown that today about 75% to 86% of heroin users started with prescription opioid pain relievers. A 2012 Canadian study showed that 22% of people who were prescribed opioids by their doctors for long-term pain management started abusing the pills. An estimated 40% of older adults live with chronic pain. Roughly 70% of patients now regularly receive opiates upon hospitalization.
