But they're mine.

Well, can't hurt to try.

What a downer.

She was arrested after a struggle.

If I were the Cop I'd have been,

STOP STRUGGLING!
NO!
OK THEN...*wiggle wiggle wiggle*
Stop I said!
NO!
OK then let's keep going....
*wiggle wiggle wiggle*
*wiggle wiggle wiggle*
*wiggle wiggle wiggle*
*wiggle wiggle wiggle*
*wiggle wiggle wiggle*

Whew, and I'm spent.
*slaps the cuffs on her*

It wasn't clear if she had a lawyer.
It was clear that she didn't have a clue.

Seriously, doesn't the United States Declaration of Independence say something about the pursuit of happiness?

Drugs make me happy...they shouldn't be illegal.  (just the really bad ones, meth, heroin, coffee, cheeseburgers, booze, sniffing glue...)

Granted, she shouldn't have been shoplifting, but the article fails to mention if she'd been prescribed the drugs herself.  If she's using them properly to get off of opioids, she should have every right to get them back.

I went to school in Salem, NH with a Morin.  He wasn't the brightest guy and I can't say we were overly kind about assigning him his nickname.  This girl would be about the right age to be his spawn.

I knew ( we have been out of touch for 14 years ) a person who got at least 1.5 # back out of 2.5. Funny how a pound disappeared in the impound lot...... But, after about 8 months, he got it and his triple beam back .

Do you want to bet money on that?

Hell no.  I never bet on an addict to do the right thing.  It just would have been useful information.

It says she was busted for shoplifting, not drugs
 
2017-07-13 10:45:54 AM  
She kind of looks like my niece but my niece is 37 and looks young than that chick.
 
2017-07-13 10:52:37 AM  
OK, so why not ask for them back?  What do you really have to lose at that point?  The worse thing that can happen  is that they say "No", and don't give them back.
 
2017-07-13 10:53:42 AM  
Morin was being arraigned Wednesday on charges of driving after suspension, breach of bail and resisting arrest, in addition to drug and willful concealment charges.

Maybe she had a willful concealment carry permit.
When wilful is outlawed, only outlaws will be wilful.

The only thing that stops a wilful bad guy is a wilful good guy.

Stupid liberal press spreading fake news about wilfulness

No, the worse thing that could happen is that the police see you drive off after determining that your license is suspended and then rearrest you which is what happened..

Actually, getting shot while being rearrested would be worse than that but that didn't happen. She was and probably still is white.
 
2017-07-13 11:23:12 AM  
Because the evidence locker only contains 1/4 of what they took?
 
2017-07-13 11:24:10 AM  
It's definitely "NO" until you ask.
 
2017-07-13 11:49:18 AM  
Suboxone sounds like a big pharma name.  Could it be a prescription drug, possibly even prescribed for her?  A drug that aids in lessening heroin addiction is certainly worth throwing the book at a shop lifter.
 
2017-07-13 11:50:25 AM  
It wasn't asking for the drugs back that got her in trouble. It was driving with suspended license.

I like drugs

They are like my grandmother's hugs

When the cops get them, it's like flushing them down the John:

"Forget it, man, they're gone"

csb: Working at a Salem, NH gas station as a younger lad, on one summer Saturday we counted no fewer than a dozen folks seeking directions to the House of Seven Gables.

We broke the news as gently as we could.

Exactly.  This was my question here.  It's a pretty important question.

I'm assuming it they confiscated them, then the answer is no she didn't, but that's also assuming the cops did the right thing and we all know that is questionable.

Addicted to a highly-addictive substance used to treat heroin addiction.

...

I mean, you could try counseling the woman first, provide some moral support, try to figure out what's going on.  Maybe she starts sobbing and talking about how much it hurts or something.  Maybe she's just a brat.  Go from there.

Heroin is bad juju.  7 months of shaking and sweating after you stop taking any opiods completely.  You don't have the stones.  You want to fix this shiat?  Get help to the people who are trying to get off the drug-including the ones who have tried and failed and given up; deal with the rest in some appropriate way.

I have never really understood the black market appeal of Suboxone. It keeps the opiates from binding to their receptors in the brain which seems kind of counter intuitive to me. Due to my own experiences with may other addicts selling their suboxone is a profitable venture. I asked a few of them why and could never really get much of an answer. I guess it is so they don't go into withdrawls when they don't feel like getting high?

It's basicaly sub-lingual delayed-release heroin. It's for getting off heroin.

Wrong drug. sorry.

Subutex is what I thought of.

Because it gives them a break.  Or they don't have a hookup at the time.

I went to highschool with a guy (who eventually OD'd in a porta potty in a park) that would do 3 months on silicone, 3 months heroin.  He and his other friends of heroin addicts said it kept them on the level.  Which I guess is true because they held full time jobs or never stole it robbed to keep up with the addiction.  Before they got so bad they ended up missing work and becoming homeless they'd take a break on something that would allow them to function like a normal human being without having to get a fix every few hours.  They swore by it.  Once he died all his friends actually got clean.

I know that these days, anything is possible, but cops generally don't take your shiat, arrest you, and charge you for having said shiat, when you have a legal right to have it.

She'll get off on those charges if she presents evidence that she had a prescription to the judge, but I doubt that she would have been arrested if they were in an Rx bottle with her name on it.

Thanks, that is kind of what I was thinking. That said I don't think it should carry a penalty for posessing it outside of a 'scrip. It shows that one is a user but also that they are trying to keep it under control, kind of a self treatment while still enjoying their drugs on their off time. Yes, I know that there are risks for not having it prescribed by a doctor like many other drugs and by that fact alone is illegal. It just shouldn't be a narcotics charge even though it is one. I know I am rambling a bit because I am pissed about the restrictions on opioids in general. I take them daily for my spinal issues and am just scared that someday my Dr would be forced to cut me off and then be miserable for the rest of my painful life...

7 months?  If you're still shaking after that long, the pain that you had that originally got you taking opiates is probably very real.  The physical withdrawal symptoms do not last anywhere near that long.

The psychological ones though can last forever.  Do like your other suggestion, we need to stop treating drug addicts as if they'd  be just fine if they only weren't a piece of shiat.

How is that in anyway related to asking for you drugs back?  They probably would have done the same thing anyway.
