The pill problem is real and people have no idea how bad it is. Whether they are rich or poor, famous or unknown the addiction to pain killers knows no boundaries. It is shameful that these pain killers are allowed to be made. I could care less who got busted, it is the folks we don't know driving cars taking care of our families and many other times where this threatens our safety.
There has to be a better way to deal with this epidemic. Doctor shopping, pharmaceutical profits, the cost of broken families eventually leading to premature death is sad.
Sure he has had back surgery and still might be in pain. He pitched about Norton spine center and was filmed holding his small children up in the air. But the common wisdom is that he is an addict as are many.

It is shameful that these pain killers are allowed to be made? So, you would rather see people suffer on a daily basis with chronic pain. God forbid if you ever encounter a medical problem that puts you in agonizin' pain. You would eat those words faster than you ate the pills that you think are shameful. You have yourself a fantastic pain free day, and I hope that high horse you are perched on breaks his leg.

I have had that pain (1992-1997). I too have had major back surgery and lived with back pain for two years prior and 5 years after. However, I did not bite into the pill pushing. I did it through rehab, exercise and determination. I also realize that pain and injury is different to all. It would seem that with today's advancements in medicine that pain medication could be made in a non-addictive way.

Honestly it seems that pot, coke, heroin and other drugs have been replaced by the pills for many that choose to use.

BTW Twin, my post is about addiction and breaking the law by trafficking. It is not about those that have a legitimate prescription and obtain it by legitimate means.

excuse me? Marijuana is safer than alchohol so dont even catagorize it in the family as pain killer, its not addicting, and doesnt butcher lung function like cigarettes, as long as you dont abuse it of course, then it could hurt your lungs, however its still cheaper, easier, good source of fuel, rope, oil's, ect ect....the only reason weed is illegal is because there is no money to be made by big corp's due to ease of growth, min. Side effects and its relatively easy to quit....our founders used hemp for god sake, it was ban in the 30's right around the same time america sold out to corporations. Think about it

People have been addicted, and there has been "traffickin'" for centuries. Prescription pills are the media's flavor o' the month. From the looks of things you buy right in. It is my opinion that your statement was callous and judgmental, and I don't believe for one minute that you care anythin''bout the plight of today's cpps. It's the modern age version of Reefer Madness.

I used to smoke weed for pain but the shit makes me sleepy and I can't function at work. That's why I take the hydro it takes away the pain and gives me the energy I need at work. I wish they had weed that would take on the effects that hydro gives you.
I agree 100 percent! the energy burst is wonderful. wish it WAS as cheap as "weed" but alas is not. hydro has no annoying dry mouth or scent :)

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.
