Looks like the pill heads are getting more doors slammed in their faces. Portsmouth is becoming a pain pill desert. Who ever thought this day would come. If gas keeps going up maybe they will just all move to florida. It will be an exercise in cultural cleansing.

Legitimate patients are also getting the door slammed in their faces which borders on sadism! Politicians manufactured this so called pain pill 'crisis' for political gain. I would hate to have a serious accident in Ohio because I would not be treated adequately because the doctors will be intimidated by politicians and law enforcement. Get rid of the junkies but for God's sake give people adequate pain treatment!
