    In my day we had to walk up hill, both ways, just to get some baby aspirin.

    Exactly. I mean, why not alleviate it, if possible?

    if they're needed then they're needed

    just because we spent 20 years handing them out like candy doesn't mean we should let
    the pendulum swing all the other way
    we're not talking about some pussy 40 year old who thinks he shouldn't ever feel the aches and pains of life

    we're talking 12 year olds with cancer

    I do comprehend the angle from cancer patients. I'm not fuckin' heartless.

    We all know that this is just the political agenda behind the $$$ though. The pros and cons don't measure up, and the alternatives are superior to this new drug that has taken down so many people in life already.

    They said in the article cancer. Then later list trauma or any other pain. Big differences. The shit is straight poison. I had a friend that never touched a drug or alcohol in his life. He was hit by a drunk driver and prescribed oxy. He was a full blown heroin addict a year later.

    There's hardly any sanity left nowadays, everything has to be one extreme or the other.

    Opiates are also effective for hospice patients. These are terminal people who just want to live out their last days pain free, there's nothing wrong with the medication providing relief.

    If they're so concerned about kids they ought to also legalize non-THC cannabis treatments for seizures and shit.

    2 of my nephews have their "green cards". Took them off the ADD and ADHD drugs, which made them fucking zombies, and they have both flourished since.
