ever heard of supply and demand? as long as people don't have health care drugs are going to be in high demand. therefore, we are always going to be drug dealers.... when will all this stop?? when everyone's eventually locked up?? Wake up people, we live in a police-state! Look up H.R. 1955;anyone who's read george orwell's "1984" will be familiar with thought crime..... H.R. 1955 ........ google it

The cycle just keeps on going. The make busts then some people rat and the whole process continues to repeat. Good point about the health insuance. I know alot of people that can't afford to go to the doctor. They think it is much easier to get a pill off the street.Alot of older people try to sell their pain medication just to be able to buy the medicine that they actually have to get to live. Some of the medicine is so expensive they can't pay for it on a fixed income. Not everyone can get a medical card.

'Most doctors in this area hand out oxy like it is asprin, if not perscribed for any little ache or pain it wouldn't be so easy to get on the streets. I know people that go to the pain clinic for the same medical condition that i have and are handed 90 a month i take tylenol and anti naproxin. I also work 8 to 12 hours a day in a factory, so if i can live without oxy or loracet so can they just some exercise and a job can take you a long way without getting addicted to drugs most people start out by taking loracet when that isn't strong enough they sell those to by oxy's so the roundup need to start at the doctors offices and pain clinics

You always have to have a villain or the law has no job Oxy was sent to seky poor areas was targeted by the government places where medical cards was high do you know that in Knox co out of 40.000 people 1/3 is on a fixed income many of them on medical cards so when the makers of OxyCotin wanted to sale there new drug they sent there new Government handsome guys in suits to the Drs office with samples to try on the Medical card community Knowing the sales would be Great for Drug Companies and The Drs would wax rich as well and finally the court systems and we will add a few funeral homes sold coffins for young people that did not understand what a strong drug oxycotin was did the Drs tell the people they prescribed this medicine for how dangerous it was or the pharmacys? No! the people of seky are victime is so many different ways it is a outrage Hal Rogers sends any money making jobs to Pikeville and Congress want glance at seky to help this area grow.
