I know this is not news in your town or anywhere else but I thought somebody might want to see it.
It's from a show called Vanguard. It's called "OxyContin Express". I fell into the trap of buying these pills here in Knoxville. I'm on Suboxone now. I know that's not an ideal situation but it has given me back my life. If somebody is on pain pills real bad this can make them back very close to normal in just a few days. If you don't like the idea of somebody taking something for addiction I do understand but it may be the best option for a lot of people.

I forgot to mention the High Sherriff of Greenup county is on this documentary using the name Duncan trying to set up some woman. He claims he's heard she needs a ride to South Florida to score some pills at the South Florida Pill Mills.
This film shows it would be very easy to get a mandatory 3 years sentence for oxy pills that weigh only as much as 14 aspirins.
Go to Ft Lauderdale to party. Buy 5 grams of pills usually less than 25 then get caught and serve 3 flat years in prison and get a $50,000 fine. Some vacation huh? And Florida has dozens of really screwy laws that you'd never know about and could violate very easily. It's a snap to go to prison for drugs in FLA and a breeze to get tens of thousands of $ in fines. One trip there to cop drugs could ruin your life. No Foolin'

a documentary huh, well go to the regional airport and camp out for a while, and keep up with the OXY EXPRESS. Usually the same faces, sometimes new ones if the old ones are locked up. Who knows, if they are high enough, maybe they will agree to go on video. Stranger things have happened.

Sorry, I thought I posted the link to this documentary in my 1st post.
This is the link to the full 47 minute show Called "OxyContin Express"
.
http://www.hulu.com/watch/100279/vanguard-the...

The title comes from the discount air fare flight from Huntington WV to Ft Lauderdale FL. The focus is on the addicts, the pill mills and the towns of Appalachia where the pills are sold for a $ a milligram.

This is the description of the show.
Correspondent Mariana van Zeller reports from South Florida, the epicenter of the prescription drug abuse epidemic in America. She follows America's largest pill pipeline from the Sunshine State to Appalachia, where OxyContin is in high demand.

Thanks for posting. I hope people will watch this video. Knoxville has a couple of pain clinics who really write a lot of pills but nothing like those in South Florida.
I've watched a few of the other videos in the Vanguard series and all of them are good. Really good.

Have you watched this video? It shows just how awful getting addicted to these pills is. It shows people getting busted in Florida for just a few pills and doing a mandatory 3 years in prison and a getting a $50,000 fine. This video does not glorify this lifestyle. It shows it just as it is, a very very bad way of life. I don't think anybody will see this and decide they want to do this. The video is a strong warning not an advertisement.
I'm sorry about your son and his wife.
Were they going to Florida to get pills? If so were they already taking these pills before they went?
I posted this hoping to warn people.

I have never had "thank the good lord above" the issue of drugs with my kids& I know how blessed I am on that..But after reading this it broke my heart for you. I will remember youns in my prayers.Drugs must be a dark deep evil hell on earth drug.. it has caused parents to loose their children,people to get killed or OD tore their families apart.. when I think of all I have read on here it makes me feel like it is nothing but a deep dark hole.. So Sorry for you.

When and if the law enforcement pick up the ones who are sending people to Florida then some of this will stop. They need to look into the businesses and people who have money because these young kids do not have the money to finace trips to Florida once a month. So start checking out some of the big shots in this area.

They finance these trips with the money they get from selling our stolen items. I have seen it happen.
