So in other words this bimbo wants legitimate patients to su8ffer because her daughter was stupid enough to abuse her medication. The instructions are posted clearly on the bottle and if she could read she knew how much to take and when. I am tired of hearing about this made up pain pill 'crisis.' As far as the dea is concerned the only people they are hurting are those in pain but they could care less!

I couldn't agree more with you Sheik. I feel bad for these parents whom have lost a child, but there are directions on the bottles that the doctor has ordered..Alot of these kids are un- educated on the danger associated with Opioids. Take too much and your breathing will STOP..It is writting to take one pillof any Opioid every 4 to 5 hrs or 6 hrs, depending on the severity of pain.
Some kids, crush the pills and snort them, other shoot them in the eyes, arms, any vein. Where to alot of these kids get these drugs, same place kids in the 1960's got LSD, in the 70s, POT, and Xmas trees, etc...From dealers, off the streets.

Come on DEA in Miami, Go after them, and any person going to A Drug store with a script for 300 or more of any Opioid..Thats stupid.

I am chronic pain sufferer, am almost 60 yrs old, and know right from wrong, and how to follow directions. Its not fair to punish me, and others, such as Vets, Cancer Patients, people whom have just had surgery

I guess the only option for my 24/7 horrible back, knees and leg pains are tylenol..Maybe when my Liver fails from "Tyleol Overdose" then maybe a lawsuit to the DEA will change things..I am tired of suffering..Its not fair..Just shows me, that the some Gov't agencies are a joke, and don't care for the legit patients.

And to this lady, sorry for ur losss. but no one shoved the pills down ur daughters or sons mouth,they choose to take more than were told..They passed, its no one fault, NOT Walgreens, no ones but the patients.....People like U are doing this horrible thing to US legit, real Chronic Pain patients...I hope at night u can hear my cries and screams and those of countless others thatt suffer constantly due in part to ur unforgivable actions.
