    When OxyContin first hit the market in 1996, Perdue published that "delayed absorption as provided by OxyContin tablets, is believed to reduce the abuse liability of a drug.” That was literally OxyContin's tag line and a mass-marketing campaign around it began. Doctors began prescribing it for moderate, chronic pain, when before opioids were primarily used for cancer patients and post-surgical for acute pain. Unfortunately, Perdue never did any type of clinical trial to show it was less likely to be abused or less likely to become a dependence for those who were prescribed it. There was a lot of shady communication between the FDA and Perdue the first years that OxyContin hit the market. This is a wonderful article on it: https://www.marketplace.org/2017/12/13/health-care/uncertain-hour/opioid My favorite part:

    It's sad. I am responsible for managing a program aimed at reducing opioid misuse in my area, so this hits home. Shame what OxyContin, the FDA, and a horrible campaign by Perdue Pharma based on complete lies ultimately led to.

    People younger than 30 in the US are no more liberal on gun control than their parents or grandparents, polls show. They tend to differ by 1% or so, statistically not significant.

    Of course I know where Kingwood is. I find it more suprising that someone from Kingwood would know where Splendora is

    Barney is a dinosaur from our imagination
    And when he's tall
    he's what we call a dinosaur sensation

    Barney's friends are big and small
    they come from lots of places
    after school they meet to play
    and sing with happy faces

    Barney shows us lots of things
    Like how to play pretend
    ABC's, and 123's
    And how to be a friend

    Barney comes to play with us
    Whenever we may need him
    Barney can be your friend too
    If you just make-believe him!
