This [new FDA approved opiod] drug Is 10x stronger than fentanyl but still safer than cannabis [and kratom], says FDA

Last month, the FDA made the controversial move to approve Dsuvia over numerous objections from high-ranking policymakers. Those opposed included four US senators and Dr. Raeford Brown – Chair of the FDA’s Advisory Panel, who noted that there are actually no distinct medical benefits or application for the drug right now.
“The lack of efficacy data and the [manufacturer’s] inadequate response to safety concerns have not been addressed since the FDA’s complete response letter was sent in 2017,” said Dr. Brown, who is also a professor of anesthesiology and pediatrics at the College of Medicine at the University of Kentucky. “Clearly the issue of the safety of the public is not important to the commissioner, despite his attempts to obfuscate and misdirect.” … “There is absolutely no need for this product,” said Dr. Andrew Kolodny – Executive Director of the advocacy group Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing. “Claiming we need it on the market to help soldiers on the battlefield [according to FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb] is ridiculous. We already have sublingual fentanyl product available for use on the battlefield.” … But the FDA and the rest of the federal government still define cannabis as a substance, that has no accepted medical use and is as dangerous as heroin. [Gottlieb is also attacking whole plant botanical kratom]. Yet the same government is fine with approving Dsuvia even though it also has no accepted medical use and is 10 times more potent than fentanyl, which is 50 times more potent than heroin.
