AG Suthers supports PILLS that KILL

Nonmedical use of painkillers in Colorado is 19 percent higher than the national average, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. TO ILLUSTRATE THE “EPIDEMIC” NATURE OF OPIOID ABUSE, THE CDC SAID ENOUGH OF THE PAINKILLE…RS WERE SOLD IN 2010 TO MEDICATE EVERY AMERICAN ADULT WITH A TYPICAL 5-MILLIGRAM DOSE OF HYDROCODONE EVERY FOUR HOURS FOR A MONTH.

HEY AG SUTHERS, WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN?  WHY AREN’T YOU PROTECTING THE CHILDREN?

Will someone explain to me why the Attorney General is focused on pot when his Big Pharma campaign contributors are killing Coloradoans at an alarming rate?

Will someone explain to me why people are in jail for choosing to smoke pot to ease pain?

Will someone explain to me why we are so supportive of whatever Big Pharma makes billions of dollars on, yet we choose not to protect the public?

    Anyone who knows anything about the drug “scene” knows that prescribed pills are the No. 1 gateway drug to addiction, crime and death, not mj. Oxycodone is the current favorite, especially in high schools, and is very easy to come by on the street, usually from someone whose grandma or themselvves get multiple prescriptions from multiple doctors that they use to turn a little profit–although some are traficked wholesale from out-of-state (Florida). Don’t know what Holder’s hangup is about pot, but he could put his agents to better use.

    Do pills kill? Just a couple weeks ago I got a call from a friend who’d moved to Florida: His best friend had just died from shooting up five oxycodones. Stupid? Yes. But the kid’s still dead at 21.

    Sorry for the caps, i can be overly dramatic at times. But enough to medicate every adult in America 4 times a day for a month!  I am blown away that nothing is being done.

    Follow the money and ignore the lives that are destroyed by over medicating people to make more money for doctors and pharma. AND stop any competition by locking up 800,000 for using cannabis or selling it.  I am just blown away….
