47,000 Americans died from ODs in 2014


Recommended Posts

Your logic is flawed Ole Faggot, first off theses OD stats are the result of poor Republican leadership in downtrodden depressed red states where governor's purposely sedate their population so it's easier to ass fuckem. And Secondly if only 200 people died a year from gun violence that would be good enough reason to do something about it you fuckin quiff.

1. West Virginia

> 2014 Overdose deaths per 100,000 people: 35.5

> 2004 Overdose deaths per 100,000: 18.8 (the highest)

> Pct. population using illicit drugs: 7.7% (7th lowest)

> Poverty rate: 18.3% (7th highest)

 

No state has a higher overdose death rate than West Virginia, where in a given year there are 35 drug-related deaths per 100,000 people. That is nearly a 90% increase from just a decade ago. This increase is due at least in part to a rise in abuse of the synthetic opioid fentanyl. Fatal overdoses from the extremely powerful painkiller nearly tripled in the past year alone.

 

More than one quarter of people admitted for treatment for substance abuse in the state are suffering from addiction to opioids other than heroin. West Virginia, not surprisingly, has the third highest painkiller prescription rate in the country, at 137 prescriptions per 100,000 people, compared to a U.S. rate of just 82.5 prescriptions per 100,000 people.
