Tell Sheriff to do research on the Portugal plan. They had a terrible drug problem in Portugal and lots of crime until they legalized drugs and taxed them.
The States obviously goes about this the wrong way because the so called war on drugs started with Nixon and we keep doing the same thing for 40 years now expecting different results and all that happens is the fact things get worse.
Face it, people are going to use drugs if they want to and if you find a way to stop it through doctors then it goes back to street dealers dishing it out or people growing it at home.
I do know that during and post Nam, pot became the huge thing because our military was bringing it back from there and they came home addicted and now it is not a big deal for someone to use that but our big problem is NOT prescription drugs. It is the fact the new wars took place in the Middle East where the poppy plant grows and our military is addicted to opiates this time and are coming home with it and it is growing all over the nation and will be just like pot within five more year and there will be no way to stop it or deal with it.
Check out the Portugal plan because we do not have enough prisons or tax money to pay for that or the health problems related to drug addiction.
BTW, I am 28 years old and have never once done drugs other than what was really needed by a doctor for a given time like antibiotic etc. I have only had perhaps five beers in my lifetime and only drank them at football game parties to be in the crowd but I hate the effects so I just don't drink. I'm not perfect. I have a lot of girlfriends and a whole lot of sex and not married and I sometimes do 75 in a 70 zone but my seatbelt is always on.
My parents told me as a kid if I tried drugs, I would get hooked and the drugs would take me out so they would go ahead and just take me out first! lol and that worked. I never tried anything. I think a lot of this starts at home with parents. My father never told me to not have sex but he did tell me about safe sex and of course to never date a 17 year old when I was 18. He said once you turn 18, you date 18-20 year old not younger because you can get in trouble and in some States an 18 year old male can get in trouble dating a 17 year old believe it or not. I prefer older women anyway and me being 28, I like them around 35 or so and even dated a 40 year old last year.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) from RXPILLHOME .COM about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

Canada Pharmacy ONLINEMEDOX .COM will always be the best pharmacy for me, whether I order prescription or non-prescription. Never failed me in delivery and quality of products.
