National Safety Council poll reveals that 70% of persons taking prescribed opiates believe it is legal to share their medications with others
The National Safety Council released the results of a public opinion poll on March 12 in which 70% of persons who take opioid painkillers “do not believe sharing the medications is a felony.” Other findings from the poll: 90% of users are not concerned about addiction (even though 60% have at least one addiction risk factor); 69% feel that opioids are the most effective medications to treat pain; and a majority of persons polled rank gun violence, severe weather, and air travel to be more risky than taking opioids.
