Do journalists do any research or do they just parrot what they are told by law enforcement. This is just another made up 'crisis' similar to the reefer madness of the 30's. This ill advised crusade has caused thousands to suffer unnecessarily and has destroyed 20- of advanced in pain management all because dea thugs want to maintain their bloated paychecks at any cost! Why should patients have to suffer because of the irresponsible action of a tiny minority?

Pharma has plenty to do with this. A sale is a sale to them.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) from ZTOPIX. 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.
