what doctor? or are you assuming it means a doctor's involvement to provide the quantity their operation would take to catch law's eye? if that's it, lot of arrests out there for prescription fraud. if charged persons are medical associates of any kind or have family/friend ties to same, that would provide one open door to getting their hands on blank prescription pads.

There is always a doctor involved some where. Turn a blind eye, just to make a few bucks their self.

Before pain clinic doctors popped up everywhere, we didn't have the problem we have now with prescription drugs on the street.

Most people that does this go to multiple doctors to obtain these drugs and go to different drug stores to buy them that is why it takes a while to catch them. That is one of the new Obama care laws that doctors and hospital go to computer systems that will be linking your medical record so that when you go to multiple doctors and hosptials they each can see your records. I am not sure how long this has to be completed I think it is my 2014 or 15. I know I went to the Dr. the other day and and he could already see what my 2 other were seeing me for and the meds they has given me.

The only reason to prescribe these type pain medications is for the terminal ill(cancer). I have seen to much first hand misery they cause for anything else. What benefits they provide are far out weighed by the bad ones. All you end up with is a drug addict.

You honestly believe the only reason Xanax and hydrocodone should be prescribed is for a terminally ill pt?'These type' of medications are widely abused, yes, but also provide benefits to the people who take them responsibly. What training/education have you undergone on 'these type' of 'pain' medications that gives you the insight that many physicians around the world haven't got? What studies have you done to bring you to your most certain conclusion? And no, before you get the chance to say it, I DO NOT take ANY type of prescription medication. Just curious as to what makes you so sure.

Because I have a close family member that has been taking pain meds for better than 5 years. Their life now consist of laying in the bed 24/7 complaining about their latest pain, even though they have taken enough pain medication to knock out a horse. Not to mention they have had an OD that about took their life. It is funny they also have friends who or on pain meds, it is amazing how that works. As law enforcement told me once pain meds were never intended for long term usage ; they only make addicts. On the other hand I have watched two people die from cancer and saw first hand the benefits they and theif families received from these drugs.

I understand, and that's a bad situation, but you can't honestly think that everyone who takes these types of medications are addicts. There are hundreds of thousands of people who can take pain medications on a daily basis that aren't addicts. You can't just lump them all in one group because you have a family member and friends who take them. And I'm sorry, but law enforcement may have to 'deal' with people who take prescription medications such as these, but they have zero medical backing to support their theory of 'pain medicines were never intended for long term usage; they only make addicts.' Ask a patient with fibromyalgia or rheumatoid arthritis if pain medications were intended for long term usage. I'd be willing to bet that they'd disagree with the cop.

Okay let us see what would happen if you took their pain pills away for a few days. I would be willing to bet they would be dependent on them. What ever happened to actually enduring some discomfort, rather then being knocked out in a drug induced state. I saw the doctors try reduce the pain medications after my family member had knee replacement surgery, you would have thought the doctor had slapped her. It is about quality of life, and pain killers takes that away. The bad far out ways the good.

It's quite obvious that we have different views on the use of pain medication, and its effects on the people who utilize them. I'm okay with that. However, I do urge you to research these medications before you make such a broad comment based on law enforcement and a family member. Self education is a wonderful thing to posses. Don't allow anyone to take that from you.
