Urge FDA to ban high-dose opioid painkillers

This petition had 68 supporters

This petition's purpose is to spread awareness of opioid addiction in the United States. Drug overdose deaths and opioid-involved deaths continue to increase rapidly. Over the past year on average there are now nearly 100 deaths a day from opioids. In latest bids, several groups representing public health officials, physicians, and safety advocates are urging the Food and Drug Administration to remove “ultra” high-dose opioids from the market, arguing that the risks outweigh the benefits. By signing this petition you are taking a stand to end this addiction.
