For my main course, Methadone. As my side, I'll take some Benadryl. For dessert, I'll have double chocolate peanut butter cake.

Methadone - control withdrawal symptoms.
Benadryl- when taken with Methadone gets them HIGH.
Empty benadryl boxes everywhere and they rock back and forth like a crazed loon.
Dessert-sugar high when they're out of the Methadone and Benadryl.

Wake up and do it again the same way tomorrow.

Sounds like a great plan - NOT!

Methadone clinics are just legalized drug dealers. I have had 2 brother in laws on Methadone and they never have weaned them off the drug.One brother in law no longer takes it because he is dead. He was a long term user several years and they never weaned him off. My other brother in law is currently on it (legally). He has not even been in the program a year and they are giving him a 30 day supply. There seems to be very little checks and balances.Lawmakers need to ask for the records of those that have been weaned off and see what percentage it is. I'm sure it is little or none.
Nothing wrong
