God Dammit, you stupid people from Kentucky! Another damn article about your dumb asses abusing Opana, that is two articles in less than a week & who knows how many other ones there are elsewhere! STOP ABUSING PRESCRIPTION DRUGS YOU MORONS! Get some frickin help, go to a methadone clinic, get on suboxone & save you, your family & the rest of the legitimate CCPs a hell of a lot of pain & trouble! Selfish azzholes! Why don't you just use heroin if you are stupid enough to abuse medications anyways? You idiots drive to Florida for pills, but you can't drive to Louisville or some other bigger city around you & just buy dope like most junkies? For Christ sake, Kentucky has to be one the the dumbest states per capita in America. I really wonder what percent of the population has even graduated High School. What ever happened to your meth labs & your moonshine? And where are the responsible doctors & the authorities out there? Obviously doctors are prescribing Opana to people who definitely do not need it & doctor shopping morons who sell their scripts. Get the damn DEA down there now, if they care so much about this "war on drugs" then go to ground zero...right in Kentucky! This is ridiculous, of course Kentucky is the first state to have articles written about their dumb citizens abusing Opana. Why won't the DEA shut down the doctors prescribing this stuff to people who are diverting it? And how are the police there so incapable of arresting the addicts? Like its such a stretch to guess its the same exact people with past charges of OxyContin abuse & other prescription pain killer abuse. DO YOUR JOBS DOCTORS & POLICE IN KENFUCKY, you are letting your inbred cousins turn Opana into the next hillbilly heroin. They should just nuke the entire state after they send letters to all the responsible, intelligent & productive people living there telling them to leave. The addicts will be so high anyways they won't even be able to get out in time even if they knew, lol. Damn you Kentucky!

Gonz007 I agree with you. Although I think they need more treatment centers down there to get these bastards off the heavy duty narcotics that legit pain people need to keep them alive and functioning. I don't take anything that strong but it really pisses me off that the mass abuse of narcotics over there is going to force the manufacturer of opana to follow the same route as the oxy and add fillers to the pill that cause serious side effects. Drug abuse is not limited to Kentucky but that state needs to get a grip on their massive drug problem and get some treatment centers to reasonably take care of their population. They ruin the ability to get pain control for legit cpp in all the surrounding states. They need to moderate their drug laws so their population doesn't have to run all over the country like cockroaches seeking out prescription drugs in other states, that try to afford their residents decent pain relief.

No, true, true. I totally agree that they need more treatment centers down there. In my post on the first article they put out about Opana abuse over there I said they should open more methadone clinics & pass out free suboxone. And I definitely know that drug abuse is not limited to Kentucky, but it always seems to start there & it seems like more abuse occurs there than in most states. Its always that area of the country & mostly in Kentucky & West Virgina where these epidemics begin, just like the OxyContin abuse epidemic that gave Oxy such a bad name. I 100% agree with you that they need to moderate their drug laws, they are everywhere around the country trying to score any pain pill they can find, bring it back there & start these huge problems. And you are right on the money about them effecting all the states around them too, my first doctor started his career in Tennessee & he said the abuse stemming from Kentucky was flooding his pain practice with legitimate CCPs from Kentucky that needed help b/c they could no longer get it in Kentucky due to all the junkies abusing scripts in KY & forcing doctors to not prescribe anything to anyone there. But I mean some of these drugs must be coming from Kentucky & being diverted & sold to these junkies out there. I just don't see how the authorities & the DEA didn't see this coming after the whole OxyContin epidemic there & all the rest of the prescription drug abuse that goes on there. They really got to get down there & stop this before this problem gets any bigger & starts to really cause a national problem & a national stigma against Opana. Its just a crock of chit that these people are always the ones who start problems for legitimate CCPs being able to get proper & needed treatment. Honestly, Kentucky has proven itself to be a state that can not be responsible with any sort of prescription medication. They should honestly ban all CII drugs there & have applications that require background checks for real CCPs that actually have legitimate pain & need treatment so that doctors can feel safe treating them & not have to worry about abuse or whether the patients they prescribe CII drugs to are going to sell & divert. I hate Kentucky so much. The politicians in that state should be embarrassed of themselves that they have done nothing to crack down on this massive abuse problem & that they are letting innocent CCPs suffer b/c of it. They should have the damn national guard at the pharmacies making sure only proven responsible CCPs get their medications. If any state needs some sort of high tech prescription monitoring system that also involves showing past drug crimes, Kentucky is for sure the state that needs it the most!

I never said ALL people from Kentucky are abusers & are lacking education or are not intelligent people. I am glad that you don't abuse drugs & I am glad that you lead a normal life as it appears & actually positively contribute to society. But you know as well as everyone else does that MANY people in your state, especially the area they talk about in this article are raging drug fiends & only make the rest of your state & this entire nation look like like fools & they cause massive problems that have massive repercussions on every single person in this country. If I lived in Kentucky I would stand up to this problem & call my senators, my mayor, my representatives, my governor, & try & make some clearly needed changes. I am sorry if I offended you, I was not at all referring to someone as yourself, but you probably know more than I do what a problem there is in your state & the surrounding states. I mean more than half of the people they bust in your state are busted with scripts from Florida b/c they actually take the time to drive down there & waste their money & your states money on pills & then come back to your state & commit drug crimes. I am not stupid enough to believe that every person in Kentucky does these things, I think there are way more people like you than there are people like the ones who abuse Opana, Oxy & drive down to Florida, but I am also not stupid enough to believe that we can just let this go on & not expect dire consequences for CCPs & everyone in this country. I hope you have a good day man & I am not hating on you, I am hating on the way your state is handling this problem that has gone on for years & years & years & I see no progress being made. Wish the best to you, your state, the people suffering in your state, & this entire country. Be well!

and there you go, that's what was happening in florida not long ago and it's not any better now. this is where the problem begins and this is where it needs to end. find another soapbox to crawl up on, gonzo, because you can't blame the states that have been monitoring for years.

How many years does it possibly take to get the addiction problem in your state under control? This has been happening in epic proportions since OxyContin first came out. I used to have a doctor that is world renowned & if you looked up his name on google you would see & he first started his career in Tennessee & he would always talk about how badly your state controls this problem with prescription drug abuse. Maybe you have a program, but it obviously isn't working that well. And Florida has made more progression. They have made more progression than your state, just in the last 6 months they have been shutting down those pill mills, pain clinics & several doctors that over prescribe & contribute to diversion than your state has made in 10 years. And I wasn't attacking you. I am aware that there are normal, educated, intelligent people in your state & aware that there are more people like that than their are people who abuse medications & contribute to this problem that impacts the entire country, but I see little progress being made in your state. These articles themselves speak right to that point. You have a good day & if I hit a nerve b/c you know someone that is abusing pills that is not my problem. You seem quite angry for someone who isn't contributing to this problem. If you don't want attention drawn to your state then make some more changes b/c obviously the ones you have made are not cutting it or there wouldn't be articles like this popping up all the time. Best to you "well" & your state.

and before you start pointing fingers, if your ip is correct you are in colorado:

Earlier in the week, the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) released statistics showing that Colorado teens were No. 1 in the nation for depression, along with ranking fourth for alcohol dependence and sixth for abuse of illegal drugs. The data should come as no surprise, since Colorado has ranked last in substance abuse prevention, treatment, and research spending. The state also continues to rank No. 1 in the United States for the percentage of rehabilitation facilities owned by private for-profit companies.

Number one in depression, number 5 for alcohol, and number 6 for abuse of illegal drugs. Ranked last in prevention, treatment and research.

I would never have so little intelligence or class as to call an entire state's population inbred, uneducated, dumbass, idiot, moron...but I do know for a fact that Colorado has one idiot and moron as evidenced by your little ranting post.

are you blind or just stupid? you can't get narcotics in kentucky! it was curtailed years ago by KASPER and stands strong today. the problem is in florida, where there is no monitoring, and the ridiculous bandaids they've put on their pill mills and legal drug dealing doctors are a joke with no funding and huge loopholes.

yes, gonzo, i think it would make anyone angry to read what you wrote about an entire state during your little pissy rant. you seem a little angry yourself, dear. you are seriously misinformed and talking out your ass - as usual - and if you can't see why you would offend people with that then you're more clueless than i originally thought after reading that nonsense.

I think you should take your own advice. Many people agree with me & have the same view points as I do. Maybe if there wasn't an article from every major news source coming out about the addiction problems in your state practically everyday then I wouldn't have anything to say. And yes I am angry that the addicts in your state are causing MASSIVE problems for EVERY CCP throughout the entire country & making it harder for legitimate people in pain to get the medications they need. There is nothing unintelligent about that. If SOME of people in your state were responsible to begin with & could handle not abusing their medications maybe you wouldn't have a problem obtaining them in where you live. You are sitting in the mess that your state made so don't go blaming other states. If addicts from your state, most of which were already addicted before they came down to Florida, didn't go down to Florida in the first place then there NEVER would have been as big of a problem as there has been down there.

Straight from SAMHSA:

States listed here in alphabetical order within each group were divided into five groups based on the magnitude of their percentages.

highest group (7.50 to 11.35 percent): Alaska, California, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.
next highest group (6.29 to 7.49 percent): Connecticut, District of Columbia, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, and Wisconsin.
mid group (5.80 to 6.28 percent): Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.
next lowest group (5.13 to 5.79 percent): Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, Ohio, South Carolina, and Wyoming.
lowest group (4.19 to 5.12 percent): Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and West Virginia.


Now, what does that do for your informed post?

And I am not the one posting long winded silly unfounded accusations that are false against an entire state in which I call them inbred, idiotic, moronic. That is childish. I sincerely hope you are female because you are quite the drama queen.

Has it crossed your little mind that the reason there is so much publicity about abuse in some states is that they ARE exposing it and fighting it instead of letting it run rampant like Florida has for 10 years now? I for one am sitting in my office on a Sunday going over and over stats, names of clinics and pharms and flights to Florida in an attempt to fight it. We are met with obstacles in every attempt to regulate Florida or facilitate a tracking system. They don't want it to stop there.

Your facts about Colorado are SO wrong its not even funny, lol. I could pull up BS data from the government if I wanted to as well, lol. I can't believe you actually believe government statistics like that. Can you tell me how those results were even gathered, collected, & tabulated? Can you tell me how many people in Colorado even are included in that so called "study"? And I have just lived in Colorado since I graduated from college, I actually have residency in multiple states. Get a life. The information about your state is coming straight from your own state, your own journalists, news agencies & newspapers. And if you could read I never said that your entire state & everyone that lives there are addicts & are contributing to the addiction problem. That is just what you want to think I believe b/c you are pissed off, lol. I have already made comments on the first article as well that was on here about your state abusing Opana earlier this week & made it very clear once again that I never believed the entire state was contributing to the problem & said that I believe there are probably way more people that are normal, productive citizens in Kentucky than there were people who are addicts & causing problems.

what are your hard facts about colorado, gonzo? or anything else? got any? you know, making broad generalizations about anything shows nothing but ignorance and bias. i have seen what continued abuse of narcotics can do to the thought processes of people, and your addiction seems to have done it to you. but do keep them out of your nose. lol.

from colorado independent, i'm sorry, according to your own state, your own journalists, news agencies & newspapers journalists you are FIRST in marijuana and SECOND in substance abuse.

now that doesn't mean you are ALL crackheads and abusers, so i'm not going to say i hate colorado, godamnit colorado, for Christ sake, colorado has to be one the dumbest states per capita in america, or i really wonder what percent of the population has even graduated high school. to do so would make me look like i am the one who is lacking in education and lineage. i'm not going to do that because i'm not an excited little addict who is terrified they won't get their pills because of the entire nation's abuse of them - including the one i live in.

more importantly, i'm not looking for a career path - good luck with that, you apparently do need something to do - i have one and i'm getting back to it. take another pill and enjoy your life whining on topix.

have a pain free day lol!!
