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

simon_bar_sinister: Just stop with War On American Citizens already. Just unlock the pharmacy. Period. Want to get high on medical heroin (yes, it's evderywhere else just not here)? Get hot. Like some vicodin for big cleaning days? Head on over to Walgreens. Want some adderal to help with that lard ass? Motor on over to CVS. Have a legit medical need for the pain pills, antibiotics, blood pressure pills etc? Get a chit (prescription) from your doctor and get the drugs for 1/2 price and even covered under insurance. No chit? You pay. Had that illness, injury etc. before and know what the doc is going to give you? Save a buck on M.D. fees and just get the meds. Let the M.D. use his time to actually help someone who needs it.All that extra money from OTC drug sales? It should be split 4 ways. 25% to the retailer for his new paper work, 25% tax to support inspection etc. 25% manufacturer profit (offset real need discounts) 25% rehab superfund. Watch enough friends and family pay a real consequence for a change drug use will moderate on its own.Employers will still be free to mandate only non-recreational use of drugs. Just like some treat nicotine like drugs now. If you want a safety critical job like police, EMS, driver you may have to abstain.Doing drugs doesn't make you a criminal any more than eating carrots makes you a scientist or smoking cigars makes you a deer poacher. Engaging in criminal activity makes you a criminal.Laws of prohibition, support of laws of prohibition is anti-freedom, anti-civil rights anti-american.
Jon iz teh kewl: Tenatra: Jon iz teh kewl: an alcoholic isn't an addict to alcohol. he's a violent man that beats his family. someone else who treats their family nicely and drinks the same amount is considered normalSpend some time around heavy alcoholics and watch their withdrawals, they can't function without it.i used to drink about 3-6 beers every night to fall asleep. i quit like 11 months later and had no withdrawal symptoms

Jument: Couldn't people just, you know, not abuse drugs? They're bad, m'k?
stir22: FirstNationalBastard: Ah, the war on drugs... has there been a bigger failure in this nation's history?nope...there hasn't. waaay too much money in the prison-industrial complex for legalization to happen...especially now.
R.A.Danny: This is where my Mother in law and two sisters in law are heading. They are a pill popping mess.
doczoidberg: Why not just let people have whatever pills they want?I'm serious.
DubyaHater: I'm fine with that. I just want the druggies to stop coming into my office and telling me they need pain pills, but are allergic to everything but 10mg Percocet.
Dreyelle: FTFA: "We didn't know it was going to be heroin. We knew something was going to replace pills."You don't say....Did they think the replacement would be caffeine?
