Have you been to a hospital or doctor’s office lately? Many medical personnel have been trained in their schooling to use the word “medicine” instead of “drug” when talking about prescriptions. This isn’t by mistake – it is a calculated effort by drug companies to lessen the apparent (and real) harmful effects of their drugs. The idea of a medicine makes something sound much less harmful to someone instead of the word drug.
The reality of the situation, though, is that drug rehab centers in this country are being filled with people addicted to these “medicines” that are so liberally prescribed. Prescription drug addiction is rampant and is now outpacing most illegal substances.
