First off to the No brainer man. I'm sure there is some people on here that responded & they understand what your saying but alot of people including myself have seen our love ones & friends over dose on these pills and as my husband passed away just last yr due to going to FL to get pain pills. He had a heart condition at 33yrs old yes he was in pain however wasn't taken care of himself like alot of other people do so they go to the pills and to me being an addict is not living life nor enjoying it ,so yes I HAVE A RIGHT TO SAY SOMETHING & it is my business so until you have been the one sitting back watching a pill addict kill themself & having them cry to you cause they want help but can't stop then you may say something yourself. These are people dying & all because of these pain clinics being opened ran by drug dealers people are coming at each other when really it just needs to be taken care of. Go to youtube look up OxyExpress Vanguard did a story about it of how bad it is. There is lines of people inside & outside the parking lots and if you didn't know any better you would think it's a car lot giving away free cars. Addicts walking around looking like they are dying in need of pills paying to have MRI's done so they can be handed their pills and get more to come back to the state to sell them. The excuse of just being in pain is not a good reason anymore & it's no ones fault but the ones giving out these pills like they are candy causing young people to OD.

I'm not an enabler so sorry I will not ever agree with what you just said. After my husband OD on Oxy's he had 11 other dif pills in his system all of them came from FL's pain Clinics. This to me is no joke it's not funny at all nor is it in any comparison at all.

Some people are really in pain I understand that but there is more over dosing & dying leaving kids without parents & that to me is really sad & nothing has really been done to correct this issue and until then this topic will always be a problem & since this has been going on for over 10yrs now & DEA is just now trying to crack down it's going to take alot to fix what they let start. So if anyone wants to complain to anyone they need to complain to the state of FL for allowing this to happen & get out of control.

My brother died on them,he did it to himself.The doctor and the patient are the only ones involved.It should be between those two.Some doctors are wrong,but the problem should be addressed by someone in the medical profession that has had training in it.Thanks to some l/e that are afraid of losing their job some doctors are not able to take proper care of their patients.I have watched it evolve over thirty years the dea would play it up then the media would add to it,they kept feeding each other 'till the public is in a panic.Now patients have a lesser quality of life and suicide is on the rise.Before it is all over people that need pain meds over 3 days will have to line up like at a methadone clinic,even if you have terminal cancer.

I have lupus so I understand a need. yes I take pills if I need them. I gave up on doctors if I don't need stiches why the hell should i come in and see you? In my family you have 3 choices with lupus deal with the horrible pain most don't choose that one. You take pills get addicted or commit suicide for those in united states. great those are my options. I have to suffer cuz peeps can control themselves.

1300 for every junkie traveling down the pipeline... this is a business. we don't dispense those drugs here.. there is no logical reason for why an average person should be perscribed 180 oxy 80's, 210 roxy 30's 90 roxy 15's & 60 xanax... that is a lethal dose and if that person actually took what they were perscribed AS PERSCRIBED
if they weren't hooked b4 they for hella sure would be after taking that scrip.
its all about the $$$$.
You're absolutely right. It is all about money. We all like money. However, I don't see how these people sleep at night, or look at themselves in the mirror when they crawl out of bed in the morning. Apparently, they have never stopped to think about what is happening to children and others because of what they are pushing. Our society has completely fallen apart. Seems like no one has a conscience anymore. My dear Father told me many years before he died that America would fall someday, and that it would not fall because of military defeat, but because of the corruption within. I never thought I would see that day, but it looks like it just might be very soon. May God have mercy on our pathetic souls.
