File this under “wow” with a small w. A new study found the following:
People who reported any level of opioid use in the past 12 months were more likely to have physical health disorders, mental health issues, other substance use and exposure to the criminal justice system compared with those who reported no opioid use.
Moreover, these associations generally increased with the intensity of opioid use, according to a large retrospective, cross-sectional analysis that appears in JAMA Network Open (2018;1:e180558).
C’mon, does this really need to be studied? Who is pay for this crap?
