When a country collectively consumes more of a deadly, addictive drug, it’s obviously going to have more deaths as a result of those drugs, worse yet Michigan ranks in the top 20% of states, id. Moreover heroin Overdoses between 2010 and 2015 have risen nearly four times over, approaching 14,000 deaths per year.[3] As local and federal governments and regulators have cracked down on painkillers, the people addicted to the drugs don’t just stop using. Many, like Mr. Speedie instead resorted to another opioid to fill their habit: heroin. A 2014 study in JAMA Psychiatry[4] found many painkiller users were moving on to heroin, and a 2015 CDC analysis found people who are addicted to prescription painkillers are 40 times more likely to be addicted to heroin[5].

Worse yet, over the past few decades, the price of heroin in the US has dramatically dropped — to the point that it’s not only cheaper than opioid painkillers sold in the black market, but frequently even candy bars[6]. To understand just how bad the opioid epidemic has gotten, consider these statistics: Drug overdoses in 2015 were linked to more deaths than car crashes or guns, and in fact killed more people than car crashes and gun homicides combined.[7] Drug overdoses in 2015 also killed more people in the US than HIV/AIDS did during its peak in 1995 [8]
