There's simply no way this can be true. A drug user will seek out the high, sure, but they won't pay 5x what they could be paying just so they can have 1 tab of Oxy versus a half gram of heroin. The supply of the pills is still greater than the heroin, even with the restrictions.

I'd believe $100/g for pure oxycodone, but I don't know where you'd find that. Anyone paying $80-$100 for a single pill of ANYTHING is either retarded, or a high school student.


I have to agree with you. To be honest, in my day a bag of weed (ounce) cost 15 - 20 bucks. 25 and you were getting premo shiat. I have no clue what any of that stuff goes for these days but those numbers stated above.... I find sort of fishy.

It's not a failure - the gov't profiting from the drug trade has been quite successful.

This isn't a "war on drugs," it's a "war on anyone else making money off drugs."

The sadness is that I know people with legitimate pain medicine needs that can't get enough pain medication because they've been labeled "drug seekers" by their doctors the DEA.


My sister in law is like another version of Elvis Presley. She takes pills for every farking thing in her imagination and then some. Can't wake up... take a pill, can't go to sleep... take a pill, Can't take a shiat... take a pill, shiat too much... take a pill and the list is long.

Yes, they will if it feels semi-legal and socially acceptable. Doctor shopping for pills is something many stay at home middle class soap opera watching mom's will do because it is socially acceptable. They wouldn't stand on a street corner at 3am trying to score smack, even if it costs 1/5 as much.

I have a few cousins hooked on pain pills, too. It's really sad...both of their lives have essentially fallen apart because of it. Neither have held down a job in years and live only to acquire, sell, and take their pills. You can't trust them in your house...they'd steal off their own mother (and have on several occasions).

Freakish. I've had the opposite experience.

I've been in to see the Doc twice in the past two years and each time I've walked away with a prescription for Oxycodone. The amount they give me us just ludicrous; a weeks supply for something that will likely start to abate due to treatment in 24 hours or so.

They just can't seem to give me enough of it.

I'm reluctant to take it. Both times I took one dose because I wouldn't be able to sleep with the pain being as bad as it was and then that was it. A few months later I take a drive down to the local Police Dept to surrender it so it isn't hanging around the house (I have young kids).

MaudlinMutantMollusk: FirstNationalBastard: Ah, the war on drugs... has there been a bigger failure in this nation's history?

I mean, even the Confederacy realized they had lost and surrendered.

Since when?


While I am certainly no Confederate apologist, it actually notable, from a historical perspective of similar uprisings, that Confederate insurrectionists aren't blowing up buses in Knoxville every other week.

Lincoln, Grant, Lee, and Sherman deserve some credit with regard to the manner in which the U.S. Civil war was ended. While Southerners can certainly be irritating, it stands out in history that there wasn't an organized guerrilla resistance following the war on the scale of an IRA or Hamas.

Just a little perspective.

FirstNationalBastard: ThrobblefootSpectre: FirstNationalBastard: Ah, the war on drugs... has there been a bigger failure in this nation's history?

It depends on whether you have a realistic definition of failure. I don't think there's any doubt that if pain pills were 50 cents a pop on every street corner that far more high school kids would be strung out on narcotics. Just because it hasn't eliminated a problem doesn't mean it hasn't helped. We still have murders, that doesn't mean laws against murder are a "failure".

However, locking up addicts and pretending that's going to solve the problem instead of trying to fix the underlying causes of the addiction that they're probably going to immediately go back to once they get out, especially since they just rotted in prison for essentially no good reason, because we either really like vengeance, or because Prison owners need to make money... that's failure.


Splat thinks you might be onto something.

Ha, I know a "Christian" woman that's always on pain meds for one of her many ailments. In her case though I think it's because she wants attention for the ailments not the high. I honestly want to know why her doctors don't set her up with a psychologist when it's obvious her ailments always prove to be in her head.

We called them lids back in the day. My "heyday" was the early to late 70s. I only used the word "ounce" above in case the word "lid" was outdated. I don't know where the term came from. In the late 60s, early 70s it was usually sold by "matchbox" for 5 bucks or "lid" for 15 - 20.

Yeah. My Dr. thoroughly believes I should have a bottle of Vicodin around the house just in case my torn rotator cuff, my shredded knees, or my diskless L5 act up. I use about 20 a year. That amount wouldn't last a week with my in-laws.

DrBreRuthlessVillain: slayer199: Yet another reason why the "War on Drugs" will never succeed. The government ends up playing whack-a-mole.

Seriously, if we took the route of Portugal, and treated it as a public health issue rather than a criminal issue...we'd have more success.

Yeah, but Portugal has less of a puritan epidemic than does the US. The War on (Some) Drugs won't stop--like so many other wrong-headed, anti-freedom policies--until the system bankrupts itself. The shiatbags who advocate for these church laws have religious conviction on their side, and are thus unencumbered by issues related to conscience when confronted by the damage their laws cause. Godliness through legislation FTW.


I actually think that's a red herring to garner Republican support. Lawmakers are making money and that's their primary goal. This isn't morality based decision making so they need blind allegiance and draping it in religion gains the support of a rather large uneducated base.

There's a reason why Christianity is used to justify a lot of unrelated nonsense. Merely invoking the name automatically translates to social support in large groups.

The medical facility on my college campus routinely handed out Vicodin to cope with headaches and aches from the flu. In fact, a physician made a side business selling the pills to non-patients and non-students. During the investigation, he was allowed to continue practicing. The college allocated legal protection and he continues to work as a prescribing physician today.

Underlying problem? The underlying problem is that people can't cope. Whether they have a mental illness, need instant gratification or are a spoiled farking arsehole...they can't cope. Can't handle your problems or what happens in life? Pop a pill. Load a needle. And guess what? Society in a general sense has taught them this is the answer when they were a kid/teen. Kid acting out? Getting in trouble? Doc writes a script or five. Problem (never) solved. Rinse. Repeat. Have a (short) nice life!

Here's the problem. It's when they put on a convincing act, I write a prescription, and 60 minutes later the pharmacy calls saying this person had 3 other prescriptions written for him/her that day. It has the potential to affect my license. I don't my career affected because of some drug seeker.
Yes, I feel bad for drug addicts. They need help. There are social problems that could help (addiction clinics, clean needle programs). However, coming into my office and trying to take advantage of me is something I will not tolerate. So get off your high horse and stop trying to paint me as some insensitive prick.

Heh...yeah....I get it.

But about ten years ago I was laid up in the hospital for a few days after surgery and they gave me morphine.

It was awesome. It set the gold-standard for enjoying narcotics.

The stuff I get prescribed doesn't hold a candle compared to that experience. As a result it's not worth it. And with a 3 and 7-year old around the house, and their friends, it's not worth the risk. I have enough trouble keeping them out of my guitars.

nekom: My solution: Treat substance abuse as a public health issue rather than a criminal one.


My solution: Hancuff them to cots bolted to the floor. Give them water and bread. And when they've been clean for 3 months, they can leave jail.
If you catch them using agian, repeat. No coddle drugs. Just cold turket.
fark them. they bought their ticket, they knew what they were getting in to.
Fark junkies all right to hell.

So Big Pharma gets people hooked on drugs. People start doing crazy things because drugs are tearing their lives apart. Big Pharma denies responsibility, stops selling the drug. People start doing even crazier things and shift to illegal drugs. (which just happen to be available now).

/ Big Pharma never goes to jail.
// Big Pharma never gives back the money.
/// But corporations are people too my friends!

I must be wired differently than most people. I've had morphine in the ER, and it was OK. As in it worked on the pain, but it didn't take me to my happy place. Vicodin and Percoset are pretty much the same way. But Tramadol/Ultram, the stuff that supposed to be less addictive -- whooooweeeee. I like that stuff way too much. I took it for 6 weeks when I wrenched my back, and it was physically painful to stop taking it.

My problem now is that I can't take NSAIDS (prone to ulcers), so docs want to prescribe Tramadol when I have pain. I'd feel safer taking Vicodin.

DubyaHater: Here's the problem. It's when they put on a convincing act, I write a prescription, and 60 minutes later the pharmacy calls saying this person had 3 other prescriptions written for him/her that day. It has the potential to affect my license. I don't my career affected because of some drug seeker.


Yep, and now we have been put into the position to have "the talk" with that patient. That talk is seldom a nice quiet conversation. I hate being put in that position. We also have a way to look people up on the state narcotics bureau list. Insurance companies also send us letters about people.

/it's not always who you think it would be
//most time, you're not fooling anyone
///it's our license on the line, not yours.
