    There's been plenty of it around BC.

    I don't have much sympathy for addicts whether they be a street person or a lawyer or a millworker or whatever. I was prescribed oxy for having my wisdom teeth pulled. I took it, was frigging awesome. When I didn't need them anymore I stopped taking them, sweated a little and went on living a normal life.

    I know doctors prescribe them and whatever. But ffs has personal responsibility completely flown out the window? You have to be a f-cking moron to not know that pain pills are addictive and harmful. But a doctor prescribed you some so now it's no longer your fault you're an addict?

    My elderly neighbor had some oxy and I wanted to see what all the fuss was all about. I got a couple pills, dropped them, and promptly fell asleep.

    Wut??? That's Oxycotin?

    Meh...

    And how many of his patients do you think he bamboozled into taking pills? Or maybe, just maybe that's why his patients went to him. Just to get pills. Some people will grease the palm of a doctor as a 'patient' for the right prescription. Is that still someone else's fault that they are an addict or overdose?

    Agreed, to an extent (of course!)

    But not everyone is as......level headed, for the sake of a better word.

    Now, and this harks back to an earlier thread, there were peeps that opined all drugs should be legal, take it if you like free will and all that.

    Should these opioid pills be freely available, and devil take the hindmost?
    Mick, you could feck up a fine day.

    People have to be their own advocate.

    You should be afraid of opiates.

    I am not sure if we are lazy, hypochondriacs, or are too into the easy way out.


    If you dont stand up for yourself, the medical industry wont do it for you.

    I've never ever been for legalization of all drugs myself. I remember others saying they were. But not me. Pot should be legal and beyond that I'm not for legalizing any of the 'hard' drugs.

    The devil is going to get them anyway.

    You can stay high on heroin all day for the cost of 1 pill.

    No? What about cocaine? There are loads of recreational users of that stuff.

    No im not for legalizing coke or any hard drugs. To addictive. I've tried it, many many years ago now. It immediately triggered the 'f-ck no' response in me. Run away.
