Thank you for posting this mike. Sweeping opiate addiction and the deaths under the rug is coming to an end in many states. Eventually government officials like SAMHSA/CSAT/FDA and DEA will have to quit the damage control and start doing some work.

Great article Mike!

I have to agree with Ban Methadone...the agencies she cited certainly need to get out of their posh offices and hit the streets to see the REAL damage done by prescription drugs.

I take it that none of you has ever been in severe pain or watched a loved one suffer unnecessarily because a doctor was afraid to prescribe adequate doses of pain medications because of government interference in the doctor patient relationship. Why should legitimate patients suffer just because a tiny minority abuse pain medications? Banning all narcotics is the dumbest suggestions I have read on Topix!

link, these people in those areas must be the most slow in USA, AREAS Quacks are known drug pushers, just say no to Montana Quackery, people in areas break a fingernail, go to quacks, quacks will openly illegally prescribe heavy narcotics to get the dolla. GOOD TO SEE MORE WITH SMALL CHILDREN getting them out of open pedophile state, MT quacks are known for rapes.
