I would like to see the medical professionals start policing themselves because cops can't tell doctors what, and how much, to prescribe. There is a huge epidemic right now involving people hooked on prescription meds. When there is no more refills, the addict goes to the street and buys them illegally at astronomical prices. When the addict realizes ******e is much cheaper and provides the same fix they start shooting up instead. Nobody sticks a needle in their arm just because they wanted to try it. Its an act of desperation.
