Hey buddy. You scammed someone name Heiroglyphics & because you're a d. Jackson & I'm a d. Jackson they think I am you. Do me a favor. Pay this person what you owe. I don't understand fully. Something about air jordans or something but if you owe him, just pay them for their nikes or rebooks or keds & be done with it.. check out the link man

The State of Florida has always been a trouble spot for over 10 years. The legislature there must take a different stance of the output of the regulations. The Federal Gov't must feel the abuse is far above the normal range. Many online pharmacies use Florida as a mailing address from offshore sources. The average physician writes 6,000 Rx's for narcotics per year. Recently a clinic was closed for writing > 600,000 scripts per year.

I wish that each and every person on this board could spend a week in corrections, you would see babies pulled from their parents arms screaming and crying "I want my mommy, please daddy, don't go. I often wonder, are these children in safe homes or is the unthinkable happening? I hear over and over how their "disability" checks only buy a few drugs then they do what they have to the rest of the month to live. Things like robbery, shoplifting, prostitution,selling drugs for others and making meth, the lists goes on and on. During the resent storms one mother was screaming, "my babies, I'm so worried about them". Her charges? Making meth in a mobile home with her babies in the house. I have to tell young people everyday that they have Hep C (incurable),HIV, STDs and other complications that taxpayers will pay on the rest of their lives. This is not a joke people, at some point this could be you or someone that you love with all your heart.

Even the people in the streets get them from somewhere... They all stem from someone's prescription. If only people who truly need them are getting them then they will be less likely to share them willingly. Now if you had said break ins and stealing of pills will increase I might have bought it!

Overdoses due to oxycodone and similar drugs are now more common than those from cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine combined

I say let them all die, all they're doing is spending/stealing govt funds which we have to pay on taxes.

O yeah, those shi* eating dogs at the wonderful dea are really doing the public a great service; forcing pain patients to go to the black market and strengthen the homicidal maniacs in the cartels - Great plan, you f**kin fools

By the way, Mr RpH, thank you sooo much for announcing your "prestigious" title, but I don't think anyone here with any brains will sleep any better knowing such an educated individual has so few intelligent comments to bestow upon us - in fact, most real licensed Rx's would not give this forum the time of day, not only because of obvious implications, but REAL RpH's simply would not have time - ok, fraud?
