Any doctor that gives out Xanax like M&Ms should be shot!

X is still addicted to pain killers supported by doctors 20 years after his car accident. Wrecked my marriage.

Perhaps more legislation should be passed to start prosecuting the drug dealing doctors and not put more restrictions on the patients who really need pain control. I suffer a very painful medical condition, my spine is literally collapsing. I have medical tests to prove that I do indeed suffer from this illness and yet I'm often treated like a criminal. While I agree that this issue has caused serious problems for our country, I don't think the solution should be to continue to put sanctions...

While I agree that this issue has caused serious problems for our country, I don't think the solution should be to continue to put sanctions on patients trying to get pain control. Why don't we put the blame where it belongs with the doctors who continue to write prescriptions for people who don't have need. I saw my Uncle die recently from a very painful cancer and although there was no hope for recovery, he was left to suffer. This is inhumane. Should only doctors of the wealthy or famous be held liable? Like Michael Jackson, and what that doctor received was a slap on the wrist for taking someone's life.

Until people recognize that people's brains are chemically different and not all drugs have the same affect on everyone there will be many deaths that go un-noticed. If someone famous dies of an over dose then it is all over the t.v. for days or months but the kid who dies everyday in small town America was someone's hero too and the corporations of pharmaceuticals needs to be stopped writing just because they have ink in their pens.
