(Natural News) Is it possible that mainstream journalists have rediscovered their integrity and desire to tell the truth? Have the increasingly urgent cries of “fake news!” caused some to find and dust off their consciences? It certainly seems that at least some have been less reluctant to do their jobs recently.

Why, then, is this “heroin on steroids” given out to patients in New Jersey for routine operations like tonsil removal?
According to NJ.com, the answer is simple: money.
