If they OD and die then we don't have to give them any more welfare Disability payments etc. I say put up gum ball machines but with free Precocet, Oxycotin, Darvacet, hell even herion on ecery street corner. Letting them die high is just draining the gene pool of the defectives.

If you were better informed about how oxys came onto the market you might not have such a harsh opinion.

I know that. I'm talking about how they ever got FDA approval in the first place.

Anything can be abused. Oreo's to oxy. They both have their place if taken/consumed appropriately.

I still don't see the problem that the mealy mouthed Mikey Dewine and his pals say it is. The numbers don't match the burial and cremation rates. If it was as bad as Mikey claims then trash trucks would be diverted on Sat Sun Mon to pick up the dead.

If you try heroin, then you're on your own because you know what that's about. As for prescribed (opiate) drugs where people get accidentally hooked, that can happen to any one of us. Recreational and accidental dependencies are two different things.

I don't believe oreos have the addictive qualities of oxys, nor were those addictive qualities purposefully hidden by the manufacturer when attempting to get regulatory approval to place them on the market.

Minimize it all you wish. Thousands of people have become addicts who otherwise never would have, but for their following doctor's orders using a legal prescription to treat legitimate pain associated with a diagnosed medical condition.

If you've never seen it, or read about it, you don't have a clue.

Maybe not, but most all of us are addicted to something.

I hate to admit that I'm a smoker. Just can't seem to quit.

Years ago I was dating a very nice looking woman. I never smoked while in her apartment or when we were in a car together, but she didn't like the idea that I smoked at all even though her last boyfriend was a smoker as well.

Once she suggested that I try to slow down or quit while we were on a date one night. I agreed, but it came at a cost. She would have to quit chewing gum for the date. She chewed gum like it was going out of style. Pack after pack.

It was nice that evening so we went out in her backyard to sit on the wooden swing. She was nervous as could be. Finally, she couldn't take it. She pulled a cigarette out of my shirt pocket and put it in my mouth. She frantically dove into her purse and pulled out her gum. LOL!

We sat out there for a couple of hours, and I had a few cigarettes, but I swear she went through a whole large sized pack of gum during the same time.

Did she spit or swallow ... the gum that is.
