Los Angeles Pill Popping Culture Have Become A Major Problem:

Pill popping has become a major part of our lifestyle and culture in Los Angeles. “Ima pill poppin animal” – it’s the title of a famous song by Rick Ross that surprisingly applies to many people in Los Angeles, CA today. With the “cool kid” stigma that’s now associated with mood-enhancing drugs in today’s pop culture, residents of the La La Land are now relying on prescription drugs more than ever. Adding to this, so many people in Los Angeles today live the typically busy and fast pace lifestyle, they often tend to opt for a quick fix whenever they have the slightest headache. The result is a society that relies heavily (too much!) on prescription drugs. Los Angeles Pill Popping Culture Have Become A Major Problem

Why Is Our Over-Reliance On Prescription Drugs A Major Issue? :

Why Is Our Over-Reliance On Prescription Drugs A Major Issue? Medical drugs are great, there’s no denying it. They cure illnesses and improve the quality of life for individuals with serious diseases. However, there are far too many red flags being raised today because of prescription drug abuse. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse ,“52 Million people in the US, over the age of 12, have used prescription drugs non-medically in their lifetime. It seems somewhere along the way the lines between medication and pleasure became blurred, people are no longer able to differentiate between self-pleasure and self-treatment Aside from the fact that this over-reliance has resulted in us spending about $300 billion annually on prescription drugs, more and more people today are dying from prescription drug abuse . Los Angeles County Department of Public Health have revealed in their report on prescription drugs that of the 8,265 drug-related deaths in the state since 2000, a whopping 60 percent involved prescription drug abuse – that’s surprisingly more than the amount of deaths caused by illicit drug use in Los Angeles, CA .


Our over-reliance on prescription drugs is not only costing us billions, but it’s also claiming our lives. Just this year pop star Prince died from an overdose of opioid fentanyl, a medication that is often used to prevent pain in certain medical procedures. News of the star cause of death has drawn a lot of attention to the opioid abuse epidemic in America but in reality this has been a growing problem for years. Pain relieving medications such as opioids are to date the most common drugs prescribed by doctors in Los Angeles. The bad news is that their long-term effects can result in serious health issues and addiction. Opioid medications can be very addiction because they affect the region of the brain that makes you “feel good” according to the National Institute on Drug abuse. For this reason, many people seek to increase usage and fails to adhere to their doctor’s recommendations.
