The real problem isn't in the manufacture of opioid pills, it is in false advertising around them.

In particular don't advertise as 2x a day with the advice to increase the prescription if there are withdrawal effects, when the correct prescription is to go to 3x a day and do not increase the dosage. The false advertising is a recipe to increase sales but create a serious drug addiction that will need to be supplemented somehow.
