Your list doesn't fly even a year and a half after posting. You can move fentanyl to number one, in Canada anyway. This list is not accurate. Oxycontin is no longer manufactured, so people have turned fentanyl which is made now in pill form in every place such as South American countries, Central America, Yugoslavia, The Netherlands, England, and it's easy to get because they can ship it into North America, where the purchaser finds out it is only 1/100th as strong as what they usually get, or doesn't even have fentanyl in the composition. Mojo has really pissed me off.
Where is morphine? It is commonly prescribed in pill form and would be in the top 10 anywhere.
And one of the newer drugs that is being abused is nabilone/cesamet, or in plain language, synthetic THC. It was developed for treating nausea and vomiting ifor chemo patients, but it is now being prescribed regularly for complex ptsd as it reduces the effect of triggers as well as the nightmares that plague ptsd sufferers.
It is supposed to aid with sleep, but the individual must take at least 1-2 grams for it to work that way. But what it does is gives one the same buzz as smoking pot, along with the munchies, dry mouth, and a euphoria like you've smoked a joint of Mexican red hair.
Here's the real FACT. The most abused prescription drugs depend on what is available to the addict. One day it could be codeine. Next day paxil, next day fentanyl. An addict has no boundaries when their drug of choice isn't available or they cannot find a dealer. So they will smoke pot, bang heroin, snort cocaine(along with whatever it's cut with~~~comet is a favourite of dealers, flour, talc, drano, bath salts, you name it), but another point is that the addict doesn't give a shit!!! They just need something to get high, take the edge off, just get enough til payday please Mr. Dealer.
Wow! There's a lot of black market club drugs that I never seen.Its wise to have a test kit for all the Molly or other drugs.Im not against Molly users,I'm for safety.I used to buy acid paper or micodot. And it never killed me.We had no test kits,only word of mouth.But a lot of people became addicted to pain pills.
I’ve been on Xanax (extended release) for a few years now, doctor prescribed for anxiety. Wanted to try to get myself off of it and I had the worst experience of my life. I thought I was dying. Needless to say, that didn’t last very long.
Ok guys, i suffered of severe social phobia for all my life. I found relief thanks to Prozac and Klonopin. What if now i stop Klonopin and i commit suicide? Thanks to Mojo and all those assholes who abused them instead of used them properly, making me feel guilty. On my gravestone you will find all my gratitude to Mojo and prescription drugs abusers. this video is meaningless and generate useless sense of guilt on individuals like me. I hate you, drug abusers, i hate you Mojo bullshit!!!
I been taking codeine for years, for pain, hangovers and so forth the so-called "buzz" you get off it is incredibly weak, it's not even remotely addictive in my opinion and if I ever take more than 100mg in one day I just get nausea. You'd have to be such a fucking loser to take horrendous amounts of it just for a small buzz.
So is Zopiclone in the same category as Mandrax since it's a hypnotic? I'v been prescribed Zopiclone since 1999, back then it was touted as a complete non addictive substitute to Benzodiazepines, but years later it was found to be not psychologically addictive, it was physically addictive to. I'm just seeing a pattern with drug companies pushing new drugs that are just as addictive as the ones before.
oxycontin has a anti abuse coating and formula, cant be snorted or crushed, a long time ago the OC's you could remove the tamper proof coating, the new OP's prevent that. Oxycodone is the instant release form of it, no tamper proof coating or extended release properties. When oxycodone hcl is by itself, its often referred to as roxycodone or 'roxy'. When it has tylenol with it, its called percocet. Also prince was killed from fake hydrocodone that had fentanyl in them, he was prescribed 15 percocet and didnt even take all of them.
Where do people get all these drugs so easily? I got severe RA when I was a teenager and all the doctors I went to just said take Aleve and you will be fine. I never got morphine or oxy or perks, you lucky fucks, I got naproxen and beer, shit!
The scumbags who are big pharmaceutical companies know exactly what they are doing. Roxicodone, which is an IR form of the base drug Oxycodone, could not only be orally ingested but also debased enough to snort, smoke and inject intravenously. Purdue lied to the VA about the addictive qualities of Oxycodone/Oxycontin when they were pushing it onto the Veterans Administration, stating that it was not very addictive. I have struggled with addiction for 15 years, fueled in large part because of the ease with which I could obtain Oxycodone, xanax and valium amongst many other drugs from VA doctors. Their solution was the combat cocktail and when I went to rehab, the same monstrous creatures who created the drugs I was trying to get off of, were also making Suboxone and Subutex as well as Narcan/Naloxone. It's utterly repulsive and obscene yet we can go to war in the name of a capitalistic based freedom and that's considered acceptable and patriotic? Stay frosty folks and stay away from big pharma. Peace out.
WOW. HERE IAM AGAIN, THAT LIST COULDN'T BE MORE WRONG. MOST ABUSED ARE NEVER WHAT THE MEDICAL STAFF, POLICE, D.E.A, , ETC. SAY. WELL SINCE THERE IS AN "OPIATE EPIDEMIC"- NATURALLY THE MOST ABUSED IS: HEROIN. (NOT SURE WHICH DOCTORS PRESCRIBE IT, BUT SINCE ITS ON THE LIST OF OPIATES. NEXT THE #1 BOUGHT N SOLD MEDICATION ON THE STREETS IN THE U.S; BUPRENORPHINE (SUBUTEX THE MOST SOUGHT, AND SUBOXONE WITH THE BLOCKER AS WELL. #3. RITALIN- NOT ADDERALL. #4. FENTANYL PATCHES-JUNKIES SHOOT THE GEL. #5. OXYCONTIN #6. KETAMINE. #7.MORPHINE. #8. THE DATE RAPE DRUG. #9. DEMMEROL/DILAUDID- ONLY THRU I.V-AS IN THE HOSPITAL....UNLESS OF COURSE UR A JUNKIE. #10. XANAX/KLONAPIN (DEF. NOT VALIUM) FROM APPROX. 40 YRS. AGO TO PRESENT. WHEN I WAS BARELY A TEENAGER- MY FRIEND'S WERE ALL IN THERE 30'S N 40'S AND THEY WERE ALL HEROIN ADDICTS. AND EVERYBODY I KNEW WERE ADDICTS, SOME JUST LIKED PILLS. AND IVE BEEN TERMINALLY ILL FOR ALMOST 30 YRS. AND HAVE BEEN ON MOST EVERY NARCOTIC. BUT IVE NEVER BEEN ADDICTED NOR HAVE I ABUSED ANY OF MY MEDICATIONS.
I am so glad I overcome my addiction to opiates. However I took so many different kind of meds. Probably the hardest to quit was the roxys. Please don’t go down that road. Be very very careful. I even used fetanyl patches. I was a worker in healthcare. Had seizures coming off the Xanax. Used Ritalin on a reqular basis. Was hospitalized 3 times to wean off. Also used meth on an almost daily basis. Now, two years later, I can’t believe I made it out alive. I see a dr regularly.
I was prescribed too Percocets, and i got addicted after the first Percocet pill I took. I still am. But Percocets give you a good time let me just say that I think I’ll be addicted for a long ass time
This list is a bunch of bullshit! Half these medications are garbage. Soma, ambien buspar, and ALL serotonin focused pills are poisons, and do nothing for pain, anxiety OR the major depressive disorders they were allegedly created for! Mojo knows nothing about prescription medications, AND no more than the false narratives of the scumbag liberal communist media and leftist government propaganda wing!
I'm sick to death of hearing the lies, a million times daily! These parasites don't know a damned thing about pain, anxiety, or depression, and most of the government are psychopaths! The only way to end their propaganda blitz is to hang them all and start all over again! STOP GOVERNMENT INTRUSION INTO AMERICANS HEALTH! AN AR15 FOR EVERY NATURAL BORN AMERICAN, AND LEGALIZE THE IMMEDIATELY EXPULSION OR DEATH OF EVERY ILLEGAL AND GANG MEMBER IN THE COUNTRY! REVOLUTION! THE PEOPLE VS THE GOVERNMENT!
Smoke hash, but don't mix it with Tobacco. Mix it with dried black tea or rose petals. Tobacco is carcinogenic. FYI, Hash is more potent form of Marijuana. Hash is not carcinogenic. And you won't die for Overdosage of Marijuana.
Oxy, Vicodin, byntal aka muscle relaxer. I’ve been hooked on the first two while in high school but now I’m on muscle relaxers. Wish I could stop but my body feels it if I don’t take one in the morning or night.

opiate painkillers have to be the worst because the just make you resort to using heroine if fentanyl, dilodid, oxycontin, hydrocodone, or vicodin aren't available. and trying to detox or break the habit of using the drug is as hard as trying to ice skate up a steep hill. and trying to quit cold turkey can kill you
I'm allergic to codine and there's also a drug call endone that's used as a pain killer. Riterline is used as a ADHD drug it can fuck you up for live by causing you to have a server case of anxiety and depression it has a dangerous side affects witch include rappid heart rate and pycosis when you turn 20 after taking the drug at a young age more children are given these drugs when there teachers have trouble coping with children that's why drugs like ritterlin are deadly cause they can cause mental health issues later in life some people even commit suicide later in life due to these drugs
Hilarious video...not one single pill shown during the narration was actually the pill being described! Xanax is a 'blue football', not a green round...etc. Hey, congrats 'WatchMojo', at least you got the white-fluffy powder correct for cocaine!
This is the second video I've noticed an amazingly lazy job of fact checking by the the what----crew. Percocet is literally a brand of oxycodone. Oxycontin is an extended release form of oxycodone. So yeah, guess you made a top 9?
The best thing to get high without money is catch lizard and scorpion, cut the tail of lizard n set it free for another time. And cut the tail of scorpion, together mix it then put 50ml purified water then grind it. After that filter it . Then take only 20ml out of it and put it in cold red tea with 4 spoon sugar, then drink it n go high in just 10 min.
Warning : Do it on ur own risk.
