Holland dissects how opioid addiction in now not only derived recreationally, but also affects people prescribed medication. When those pills are gon?, what drug is next?
We've made a nation full of kids on dope
They're looking down now at the end of their rope
So now who's gonna come and fix this?
Holland told American Songwriter
the opioid crisis is different because victims get prescribed these drugs for pain not knowing how addictive they are. When the prescription runs out, they get hooked on illegal street drugs like heroin. "It's almost like you're accidentally addicted in a way," he said. "It was an interesting viewpoint that I hadn't really seen discussed before… this is a scourge that's really caused by big pharma."
