Warning FDA approved a new killer pain pill

See also

According to USA Today the FDA approved a new painkiller that is so powerful it can and will kill the patient with as little as two pills. See the above link for more details.

The article at USA Today states: This narcotic is ‘Like OxyContin, Zohydro is a "pure narcotic"; but unlike OxyContin, the Zohydro set to be released isn't tamper resistant, and can easily be crushed, then snorted or injected.’

This new drug is highly unsafe for the general population the article also states: one of the experts said, ‘It's a whopping dose of hydrocodone packed in an easy-to-crush capsule. It will kill people as soon as it's released.’

To all my readers beware and be safe, it is always better to be safe than sorry or in this case possible death.
