Letterhead954 Posted November 6, 2011 Report Share Posted November 6, 2011 (edited) I was looking up info on arthritis when I came across this article. http://www.webmd.com/pain-management/news/20111101/40-us-deaths-a-day-from-prescription-painkillers I have a friend who has some serious pain issues (but doesn't like the effects of mj) who gets relief from small, occasional doses of vicoden. But because of this abuse problem he literally can't get a prescription in our town. He has incredibly high pain tolerance but needs a small dose in the morning in order to function. As a result he has had to turn to the black market. He hates doing that but sees no other choice. I know a lot has been written here about prescription painkillers, but this really shows one of the major differences between opiates and mmj. Oops. That's 40 deaths per DAY. Anyone know how to change the heading? Edited November 6, 2011 by Letterhead954 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
