I'll take a couple of those, hold the venti half-caf skinny pumpkin spice and whipped cream, please!

If you order it skinny it doesn't come with whipped cream. Also, we don't have a sugar free pumpkin sauce TARDMITTER.

Where the hell do these people find these doctors? I have to jump through about a million hoops to get my legitimate prescriptions filled!

FTA: " One "young adult" who was receiving opiates from Yee has died, and the case is under review by the Orange County coroner's office, Nomady wrote."

That's funny. No one else ever dies after being prescribed medication by other doctors.

FTA: "A third of the prescriptions Yee allegedly wrote were for people age 25 and younger, prosecutors alleged. "

Gee, I wonder what percentage of the US population is aged 25 and younger?

FTA: "Addicts and public health workers say many of those who abuse the expensive painkillers later switch to cheaper heroin to supply their habits."

When illegal and banned black market drugs are cheaper than the pharmaceutical versions, it should tell us something about our society.

Yee.

I have some hydrocodone from when I got my wisdom teeth out. I took one and hallucinated a bunch of naked black women dancing around me. I didn't take anymore after that.

I think hallucinating naked people of any race would be quite scary.

I'll have a venti half-caf skinny pumpkin spice vicodin, extra whipped cream. Oh, how I love these seasonal coffees.

Trifecta in play?
 
2011-10-26 11:19:12 PM  
I have multiple long-term painful medical issues and can hardly get prescription Motrin. How do these lucky bastards find these crooked doctors?
 
2011-10-26 11:26:36 PM  
That would sound good, except the pumpkin spice part. The absolute worst part of the autumn season is the onslaught of this nasty flavor. I think I'll just hold out until the either the venti half-caf eggnog vicodin with extra whipped cream, or the venti half-caf peppermint mocha vicodin with extra whipped cream becomes available.

It's called the War on Drugs. It's not about reducing crime. It's about criminalizing the poor.

If you've never had someone order a non-fat drink with extra whipped cream, then your customers are smarter and better at math than mine ever were.

Just think, in a couple weeks there'll be people ordering "nonfat eggnog lattes".

Honestly, it's not record numbers. It's pretty much the exact same number of people who were taking, and in some cases abusing, prescription pills as before. But someone figured out it was a whole untapped revenue source for the war on drugs, and not only did they start actually paying attention to these people, but they've basically created half the problem. Legit doctors prescribing half a months worth because they're not willing to risk getting investigated, knowing that if their patient is one of the legit ones that actually has any sort of chronic pain they're going to find a way to keep taking them. And then there's the people actually taking them. When it wasn't a problem, wasn't a huge worry every single day it was almost easier. Me, I smoke. Sometimes I don't budget my money well. Sometimes it's 2 days till payday and I've got half a pack of cigarettes left. Usually I'm a pack a day kind of guy. No problem. Stretch it out to one every 2 or 3 hours instead of one an hour, I'll scrape by, right? And yet somehow when that happens, that half a pack doesn't even last half a day. I find myself smoking my 3rd one in an hour, and then thinking, okay, just have to wait 5 or 6 hours on the next few, no problem. An hour later they're all gone. And let's face it. For as horrible as quitting smoking is, as insidious as it is, it's not going to leave you curled in a ball wishing you were dead from the withdrawal, and it's not compounded with the resurgence of pain so crippling you had to start taking something to be able to function day to day to begin with. If the majority of people could legitimately get what they need, without hassles and risks, not only would less of them start hoarding and and over-medicating, but when they did start developing problems with needing excessively high doses to keep the same baseline of pain suppression, it'd be possible for them to get help, for people to take notice and help them, instead of them having to hide it, sneak around, and only get found out when everything collapses around them.
