  1. Don’t forget the hundreds of thousands that are NOT abusing their Meds. And why are New prescriptions being issued? This is just another TYPE of Drug Barron War, abusing the Patients in this case, get a grip and start readresssing rehab, for those arested, stop over dramatising, this is making the life of people like me a nightmare in medical offices, the ignorant are being abusive toward legitimate patients, stop the abuse by the med teams in clinics toward legitimate patients, not a day of abuseing meds, we are all being tarred wthe the Junkie BRUSH, STOP IT BEFORE SOMEONE GETS SUED, and what is the real story, private prisons not making enough profit??

  2. What everyone is overlooking is the root of the problem – the largest wholesalers: McKesson, Cardinal, Amerisource Bergen and H.D. Smith. They are the outlet that overfills the orders however they give their sales team a quota to overexceed controlled drugs, which the DEA is not monitoring, to create revenue
