    I cant get pain relief now because pain docs didnt wanna touch me at such a young age. It pissed me off so bad I've refused to ever go try again and just buy from the streets. The doctors are as much to blame as the drug makers. Govt as fkd it at ever corner also.

    If we spent half as much on rehab programs and job training for addicts that we spend locking them up we could rewlly put a dent in he issue and the economy gets a boost also. Its a win win but incarceration is easier and more profitable

    I suffer from chronic pain and since 2004 I have been taking prescription opioids to manage it.
    I had to recently switch from Tramadol to Palexia and the weening process was not fun.

    In Fayetteville, North Carolina, on the corner of Yadkin and Skibo (yes those are real street names) there are TWO Waffle Houses. You know you're in the South when there are TWO Waffle Houses on the same corner.

    Yeah, and now people who suffer pain are suffering from pain because God forbid they get adequate pain relief but give addicts all the suboxone and methadone they want! Pfft...

    Strangely the topic of legalizing cannabis (not all forms of which are addictive) is still being stalled 3,5 years later.
    Maybe because it's not "cheap, quick and easy". It requires actual work and actual research for the best ways to use it (as well as a hella work of convincing people of a simple fact that alcohol is more dangerous).
    As a bonus, it works for cancer patients.

    trump is why you cannot have a person like him as a president ...He has no idea about a drug like Heroin but also doesn't have the cognitive Ability to do 10 minutes research to find out....The man is so stupid and inept he cannot grasp anything like the massive US's drug problem. The Answer ? You go and find out what the problems are and stop being so godamn lazy and ignorant.
    This is the reason I get miffed on here when people ask questions that are really easy to find out the answer and where people should know the damn answer in the first place. You are on a computer ffs.
    DON'T be ignorant, be smart and proud to be smart.
    Trump is Willfully ignorant and is proud of it. The world needs people like trump like Africa needs his retarded kids running around with guns.
