Study Abroad, Kalu Yala, and a Federal Financial Aid Scam?
Over 4,000 miles away in Panama’s Tres Brazos rainforest, construction is underway to build a jungle town. At first glance Kalu
looks like paradise with thatch roofed huts, a farm to table kitchen, a large garden and running water. Jimmy and his father
Sandy Stice are real estate developers from Atlanta Georgia and Kalu Yala is a for profit business designed to make millions
off the $200,000 homes
they plan to build and sell on the 7,000 acres they own of lush green rainforest.
The opioid crises is being used to target pharmaceutical industry.
Not a day goes by without hearing something about the heroin and opioid pill epidemic
. It’s all over the internet, the news media
and it’s getting attention. What is missing from the articles is why the suburbs
are targeted by heroin dealers or who is
paying the dealers to do it. Reports claim the heroin is coming from Mexico.
There is no question middle class America
is the target and the perpetrators are banking on your child’s addiction and worse so they
can point their finger at the pharmaceutical industry and say -you are responsible They want you to believe the pharmaceutical
industry is evil and must be destroyed. (can you imagine the alternative). Are pharmaceutical companies to blame for heroin overdoses
and too many oxycontins on the street? Of course not. They are the manufacturers, not the distributors. Pharma's are getting
the blame for an epidemic that was caused by Mexican and Colombian nationals illegally entering our country to intentionally do
harm to our citizens. Pill Mills
and Pain Clinics
are also responsible.
Pain management clinics have thrived in California for years. To get in, a patient is referred by any primary care physician, including
medical marijuana doctors. Some conditions that qualify for services are arthritis and abdominal, back and face pain. There are over
500 pain management clinics listed in the online yellow pages
for Los Angeles alone.
Pain clinics are known to encourage clients to use very strong addictive medications, even when it’s not necessary to prescribe such
a heavy dose of drugs and even when the client objects. I spoke with an amputee that told me he was encouraged
to use strong pain medications given only to cancer patients. He also told me the over prescribing of strong pain medication is normal
at these clinics, so much so that people often sell it on the street. He claimed he asked the pain clinic for 5 mg oxycontins
and was given 20 mg tablets instead. The beige 20 mg oxycontins sell for $40.00 each on the street. 10 mg oxycontins sell for
$10 to $20 each. 10 mg hydrocodone sell for $10 to $20.00 each. 5 mg vicodin sell for $10.00 each. Green oxycontins sell for $20.00.
Not only are pills over prescribed, patches are encouraged too.
