It’s impossible for us as a society to ignore the fact that there’s an enormous benzodiazepine problem alongside the methamphetamine and opioid epidemics.
Right now, there’s a new generation of addicts who are observably straight-laced, good kids from middle-class and upper-middle class families. But what’s not seen by casual observation is their compulsive popping of “Xannies” or “benzos,” otherwise known as tranquilizers and anti-anxiety medication.
The most commonly abused benzodiazepines are Xanax, Klonipin, and Valium. Believe it or not, a lot of American households have those drugs readily available in their bathroom medicine cabinets, ready to be swiped.
