Mac Miller

The Los Angeles Medical Examiner's office reports that rapper Mac Miller died from an accidental overdose of cocaine, fentanyl and alcohol.

Miller is the latest celebrity to fall victim to the opioid crisis that has gripped the country.

Now the Food and Drug Administration has approved a more powerful opioid pill that is 10 times stronger than fentanyl.

The pill, Dsuvia, is 1,000 times stronger than morphine. Dsuvia is a fast-acting pill intended as a substitute for intravenous morphine for chronic pain sufferers.

The tiny pill, which dissolves under the tongue, can be used to provide instant pain relief to soldiers in the battlefield who are unable to swallow.

In a lengthy statement, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said there will be "very tight restrictions" to keep the drug out of the hands of recreational users and celebrity dope addicts.

Gottlieb said the drug was a very high priority for the Department of Defense, which helped fund the testing.

He said the FDA did not sidestep "the question of whether or not America needs another powerful opioid while in the throes of massive crisis of addiction."

But critics are sounding the alarm.

"This drug is doomed. It's dangerous and it will kill people," said Sidney Wolfe of Public Citizen's Health Research Group.

Dsuvia, manufactured by AcelRx pharmaceuticals, will sell for $50 to $60 per pill.

Bootleg fentanyl sells on the streets for $10 to $20 per pill.

  • xenaD

    I would just like to ask, who in their right mind... who’s not in pain, would take sum fkn fentanyl??? My partner was in pain management and a kid there tested positive for it, I immediately googled ?? wth

  • FukkFolks2018

    Pharma sales. Not my cup of tea.

  • Trey

    How and why was this approved?????

  • Navybeans95

    It was approved because they are trying to kill us ..thin out the herd...

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Peeped that too huh..

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I just dont understand the need to be that high.... blow one and keep it moving...

  • Coco Mcluvin

    It's all about the money. It says this was approved and was high-priority for Department of Defense. Department of Defense is funded by tax dollars. So they found a new way/thing to get Service Members hooked on at the expense of wasting tax paying dollars? okkkkk.....the priorities.

  • Navybeans95

    Less paperwork.. killing us thru legalized drugs that they know people gonna get hooked on is not as bad as another 9/11...lol, this might get deleted. Let me shut up...

    ohhh i gotta give that a try...

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Bwahahahaha according to my inbox someone already flagged it as suspicious..

  • HalleMerry

    $$$ Big Pharm makes BANK off of meds! It's not in our best interest,it's in theirs and if they can Secure a government contract making it available for The military..ChaChing!!

  • Navybeans95

    ????....the truth shall set us free....

  • HalleMerry

    There are people of ALL colors in the Military.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Baybay ain’t that it. It’s Monday just home and Mary bout to have fun!

  • Yvonne79

    I see they're really trying to get the people hooked on these things so they can fatten their pockets...SMH

    Mankind is always looking for faster and more lethal ways to exterminate itself.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    That's my whole thing!

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    I feel like this is all an agenda to get these people hooked and to eventually kill them off. Every celebrity under 40 always dies from either a drug overdose or suicide. Now tell me anything but something aint adding up.

  • tintin

    Tight restrictions ..yah right.
    All these doctors and pharmacists are being paid off to give these lethal items to the rich...even to the poor

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Those deaths weren’t accidental. Get real ? how someone overdosing and find time to put the substance in their pocket as they’re dying? Would it not be found on the floor beside them? Found on the floor in a “praying” position?” Sounds like he was begging for his life. Then they do a tribute on Halloween? Everyone knows thats when these celebs do their rituals. There’s a whole calendar laying out the ritual dates n Halloween was one of them smfh...coincidence that these celebs keep dying frm an overdose/suicide. The public will more than likely grasp on to that story before they believe they were killed as a ritual.

  • dru and neil

    I was just thinking it’s only a matter of time before somebody is bought.

  • Navybeans95

    Charging $50 to $60 per pill to possibly kill yourself..SMH....a shame...

  • Navybeans95

    They just skipped all over marijuana....?

  • Shamwow

    Maybe a fentanyl high is a good high to addicts everytime. With heroin it decreases as the tolerance increases. Fentanyl will simply kill you . It’s mind boggling how dangerous stuff
    Like this is quickly approved but marijuana doesn’t bring in enough profit for the big wigs. Smh

  • Shamwow

    I’m in pain and I’m afraid to take anything like that. Smh addicts are addicts they will always find a way.

  • Shamwow

    The women marketers wear short skirts and high heels. Selling sex appeal.

  • Shamwow

    It’s so sad how open they are to them being pawns . Physically, medically and economically such a sad thing. I would never allow my child to go into the military. You never see them at “good schools “ marketing for pawns.

  • dontgetblocked

    At one point you have to take responsibility for yourself. I have chronic pain but I deal with it. Pop some Tyelenol and use natural remedies. What I'm not going to do is become a druggie.

    That's craZy!!! Why would GDA approve such a pill. This pill is going to get in the wrong hands!!! Total disaster and OD is go up!

  • guest

    FDA should be ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES

  • Alextra Ballard

    So Fentanyl ain powerful enuff. Smh at 10 times more potent. Fentanyl mixed with anything will kill yew. I understand they found him in a praying position. Sew while he was ODing his friends were swepting the place clean for drugs and drug paraphernalia and didnt even bother to call paramedics. RIP Mac

  • Logan Roberts

    Exactly what the world needs right now smh.

  • the guest

    They should be ashamed especially since they know exactly what they are doing milking addicts all the way to bank.

    Big Pharma : The real dope boys and pushers

  • Mielle Downey

    Why can't people just walk away. Taking drugs is like going to the grave yard and admitting that you would rather be there. Just say no to drugs and visit the morgue daily as rehabilitation. Seeing what you'll look like if you start or continue to take drugs is therapeutic. Knowing is power. It's a choice and all we have are choices and excuse.

  • Mielle Downey

    Amen to that anything man made is not good for you. Herb comes from the earth and now man got his grubby paws on that patch adding chemicals to kill u.

  • Mielle Downey

    Rich people problems.

  • Mielle Downey

    Mary is not a drug she is from God and can be found in the bible growing on King Solomons grave. The fentanyl stuff is from satan.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    The REAL Walking Dead

  • Mielle Downey

    Well they can test that stuff on all the illegals coming with caravans. Why do you think they are intitating an opioid epidemic. We are useless eaters to them. TO be used for experimental purposes. GOD SAVE US ALL.AMEN

  • CookieMobster

    I heard on the radio this afternoon that when they found him he was in the praying position. That means to me that he realized he was fading and was trying to pray either for it to stop or for it to come quick or something of that nature. That is some deep stuff. Such a shame.

  • Shamwow

    I agree, I also want to add that fentanyl is also man made. Humans sure know how to mess things up. Smh.

  • Floriduhh Evans

    They know exactly what they doing!!! Wake up the government sees us as only as a paycheck....the ultimate pimps ???

  • Nina Ross

  • Lola

    This is sad.

  • Gloria

    Damn. Big Pharma and the FDA are the true dope boys. Anything for money though, right?

  • Mielle Downey

    None. She only make people happy hungry and sleepy.

  • Mielle Downey

    Well they can test that stuff on all the illegals coming with caravans. Why do you think they are intitating an opioid epidemic. We are useless eaters to them. TO be used for experimental purposes. GOD SAVE US ALL.AMEN

  • Rhyme and Reason

    And, their party affiliation doesn't matter (whether dems or gop), they get what they want, and run this country, FDA are their Kingpins, enforcers!

    Americans take more illicit drugs and dominate the opioid epidemic, somewhere around 70 percent, on a global scale.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    This drug will be sold on the black market, and sales reps will flood doctors with samples to try!

    How is this making America great???

    Very sad to read this because more of our kids, will be exposed to this addiction as they live in predominantly white communities, worlds, interracially date and marry. Somehow, in the end, we always seem to get the big numbers that they start off with!

    Sounds like C R A C K [devastation] in a pill form, no water needed! Who is their real target market, ok?

  • PynkCloudz

    Went to the dentist to have one wisdom tooth pulled. Prescribed me Tramadol, I just shredded the prescription and took some motrin. This is how people get hooked.

  • pure_rachet

    Maybe you didn't take enough. Im being insensitive and I apologize but I was prescribed this as well. I took 4 at once and it was amazing.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    wow! The purpose is great but it will be abused.
    Thus life.

  • TransMichelle

    That's why the troops are still in Afghanistan fighting an un-winnable war because of the opium poppy fields. Uncle Sam is the biggest dope (heroin) peddlers in the world. When the Taliban was in charge they had nearly wiped out the poppy fields in Afghanistan.

  • Gloria

    Yep. Was just talking about this with my guy!!!!

  • sunni_daze

    More of y'all faves about to drop like flies.

  • Truth Or Die

    Over 100,000 Americans DIE every year from proper use (no overdose) of FDA-approved drugs and neither political party or mainstream media has said a peeped much less launched a federal investigation to shut down the FDA and slap criminal charges on the top exec's (who are often former execs of major pharma companies). Proof that this 2 party system is controlled by a CRIMINAL CABAL which needs to be exposed and disposed of or else the votes you cast is a vote of approval for these gangsters to keep killing and plundering all of us. Good day

  • xenaD

    Ok. Maybe I was naive about the way addiction works... but wow!!

  • Trace da Ace

    wow....so basically they are trying to put out a fire with more gasoline??? Drug companies will do anything to get your coins!!! Even if it kills you!

  • ShelbyMoore

    Yea, no.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Meanwhile trump convinced his toothless base that he would stop that from happening. Another lie. Idgaf either way

  • Li-Wright

    I try not to be a conspiracy theorist....but the damn govt knows what it's doing....approving these strong drugs puts money in the hands of Pharmacy and kills the youth. Why would you want to KILL your patients and customers? The govt doesn't give money to schools because when you don't educate the youth they don't know how to read, think and vote! That's what's going on.

  • Li-Wright

    This is the govt killing its youth. Blame Trump.

  • Fodderwing

    Ooh. Good info Ms. Rose!

    Get out there and rock the vote everybody!

  • teather

    FDA is the biggest drug pushers in the world.

  • the chosen one

    You are right on that. It's a setup.
