A friend of mine was recently on a trip to the US where he fell and sprained his wrist. OUCH! So naturally he went to the local hospital to get it looked at, bandaged up and where they gave him a prescription for OxyContin. OxyContin really? for a sprain. For those of you who don't know its a drug derived from Opium and will give you a damn good high. Which got me thinking the States has a high percentage of people hooked on prescrition drugs and with all the Vicodin, Percocet and Oxy prescriptions being handed out for somethng as minor as a sprang its no wonder so many people are hooked on this stuff. In Canada if that happens to you your given A T3, as in one T3 maybe you'll get 2, and sent on your way. I had surgery for fucks sake and all I got was a prescrition for T3's and when i asked for something stronger they said NO... you'll be fine with these.
So why doesn't Canada hand out the good stuff like the States? Oh ya, we don't have drug companies that make money off of us getting high and hooked on OxyContin , Vicodin and whatever else they can hand out. So why in the fuck is there a war on drugs in the US when there ok with getting their own citizens hooked on prescritption drugs, a drug IS a drug. They certainly don't need to be giving OxyContin out for a bloody spranged wrist when a T3 will do the job.
