I'm sick of the bad PR our ("our"!) govt always gives these life & mind-saving classification of drugs called opiates. In relation to the amount (millions per year) of people taking them verses the number of people addicted to them, the ratio is extremely low. I think our govt should keep their moral judgments out of OUR personal health issues. They're not doctors. Or experts of morality.

I have ordered prescription drugs from ZTOPIX dot 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.
