The FDA and the government are breaking the law by permitting the sell of Oxycontin. It is heroin with a different name. Because the government is allowing the sale of an illegal substance, it is no longer a crime to sell heroin on the streets. If someone is arrested for selling any illegal drugs, then their lawyer can petition the courts to dismiss the case on the grounds that the government is allowing the sell of heroin and calling it Oxycontin.

How much of that illegal stuff you been using there, Spot? I think you're a bit confused about the laws for controlled substances. But damn you sure are good for a laugh!

What I said is mostly the truth, except for the joking part about being able to sell heroin legally now. Oxycontin is molecularly almost identical to heroin. There is really no difference. So for all real purposes, our government and Purdue Pharma, the makers of Oxycontin, are selling heroin to US citizens. It is labeled Oxycontin, but that is like calling cocaine by another name and selling it on the streets.

Oxycontin is a narcotic, while heroin is an opiate. Just thought I'd point that out.

So all of the people who need and use oxycontin legally and responsibly as a short term pain-killer after surgery or injury shouldn't be able to have it, since there are jerks who abuse it? Heroin (morphine) has been used for ages to treat severe pain. It was a medical treatment BEFORE it was a street drug!

Not to burst your bubble but both oxycontin and heroin are both narcotics as well as opiates.

Don't you understand what I'm trying to say? Oxycontin is heroin! Heroin is illegal, so therefore the FDA has broken the law by allowing it to be sold. And Purdue Pharma is breaking the law by distributing it. Also, there are a lot of safe painkillers out there than can be used after surgery. Oxycontin did not come on the market until the 1990's and doctors have been performing surgeries a lot longer than that and controlling the pain without this addictive, life destroying drug.

No I guess I don't understand what you are trying to say. Oxycontin is a slow release form of morphine. That's what heroin is too, yes. It is a street name for the same thing. I guess there are differences in the formulation, but it is all basically the same thing. They are all opiates, and controlled substances. You seem to think Oxycontin and heroin are different from the other opiates used for hundreds of years. It is not. When handled properly under medical care as they are designed to be, they are effective and an important treatment. Controlled substance means there are very strict laws about their use, for the doctors and nurses, the pharmacies and patients.

Have you ever had surgery? You were most likely given some form of an opiate. And you didn't get addicted. If properly used you don't. The problem is people who use it to get high. Or who use it for pain and overuse it and then get addicted.

Purdue pharmaceutical quit making OxyContin like 3 or 4 years ago. There are still different forms of oxycodone out there but OxyContin are long gone.

Where did you get your information? I don't believe this is true at all. They are making way too much money to ever do that until it is banned, which it absolutely should be.

Oxycontin is way too addictive. And I know people that fake back pain and get Oxycontin, and its almost equally sinister sister Roxicodone. Some people get hooked after one dose.There are other medicines that can be used in its place. And all strong opiates should only be used under very strict guidance and limited to a certain amount of time after surgery. Or for hospice patients or persons with cancer or some other horrible disease.

Oxy is very similar to heroin but not an opiate it is an opiod. It is just one molecule different that pure herion oxycodone and oxycontin r the same thing except for the so called time release in contin hence continued release roxy or oxycodone hydrochloride is the same freakin thing. It is not derived from poppies therefore not an opiate. It is derived from ibogaine. Either way it is highly addictive works for pain management and destroys lives. By the way heroin was named branded by bayer the same ppl who make ur aspirin.

I bet you would like smoking a dog turd too. It would be better for you and cost a lot less. Why don't you spend your money on your family instead of giving it to a dirty drug dealer?

Really douchebag? Does the Dr. that gives it to you know you are smoking it? It's a pill, not a cigarette. Why are you getting it anyway? My tax dollars pay for your drugs. You make me sick. You, the doctors and everyone involved in this junk should go to jail.
