Granted many of these people who get hooked on opium-based substances got that way because they were using the drugs "recreationally", but some people get hooked because some idiot doctor and/or doctors passed out opium-based painkillers like it was candy.

Doctors write these prescriptions for just about anything. I had a growth removed from the skin on my midsection a while back (probably a carbuncle like gump has all over him). The doctor numbed it up, cut it out and put in about six stitches. This was all done in the office. He wrote me a prescription for vicodin which I did not fill.
The only aftereffect I "suffered" from this "surgery" was just some itching as it healed.
Why was this doctor trying to get me to take Vicodin?

To keep you from bothering him after work while he was doing something important like drinking or playing golf or playing golf while drinking.

Legitimate patients are usually not the type to switch to heroin. Most wouldn't know how to go about obtaining it.

Or the doctor could be playing golf while drinking AND taking Vicodin

Which we all know leads to indiscriminate killing of skateboarders.
