I have a very similar opinion.
That's nonsense people to drugs everyday and don't kill people or Rob people she going to do that it's already in you just if you know that drugs take you that are then why would you take them knowing that you would get violent you need to learn to put some take some responsibility for your own actions be accountable
And another thing for you people saying that the problem is that they kill people or make them in poor health.. the leading cause of death in America id cardiovascular disease. Fucking fast food is way more deadly than drugs. How much freedom do you all want to take? Make fast food illegal and see how you fucks like it 🖕
I'm not saying they should or shouldn't be legal, because I'm still undecided, but that argument is poor. For example, Heroin is chemically called Diamorphine, which is genuinely just a form of Morphine that gets into your brain faster; soon as it crosses the blood brain barrier it metabolises into Morphine just before it hit your brains receptors.Morphine you get from the hospital is genuinely no less addictive or harmful than Heroin that you find on the street. Again, not saying i know what the solution is one way or the other, but to say these drugs make people kill because of the drugs alone is just not being honest. Otherwise we would see the same with people on prescribed pain medications, who never get off them tot he point of killing.The fact that it is illegal and people's personal dysfunctional lives are major factors that are not to be ignored to simple blame and inanimate drug.
I'm going to have to agree with you on some parts and disagree on others. I don't know if legalization would necessarily lead to safer drugs, but it would lead to safer dosages and safer usage in general, side effects would still be common but overdoses would be cut way back. I just don't think you can remove all the bad affects without removing at least some of the high, sure, you could make opioids safer by selling heroin instead of Fentanyl, but I don't you could make fentanyl (or any drug) have 0 risk.Methamphetamine was once used legally, it was developed in 1919 and uses heavily throughout the second world war in order to make soldiers perform better, a fact which the world has tried to forget about. We caused the drug crises, both world wars caused a huge amount of drug addiction, and recently we have had a lot of cases of doctors inappropriately prescribing fentanyl, which is causing a third wave in opioid addiction.www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3008378/"Case 1. A patient who had been given a morphine infusion immediately after surgery was discharged the next day. A nurse applied a prescribed fentanyl patch, at a dose of 75 mcg/hour, to the patient’s skin before discharge and gave the patient three patches to take home. The patient also received a prescription for oxycodone (OxyContin, Purdue Pharma), as needed, every four to six hours. Unfortunately, the patient died within 12 hours of discharge."
If it makes you feel any better, I KNOWINGLY did crystal meth. The ingredients in Crystal meth depend largely on who makes it and how, there are multiple types/grades of crystal meth, with some looking like legit crystals and some looking like powder, it can even come in rock like chunks, and a variety of colors. Admittedly though it is often made with battery acid and drain cleaner. However krokadil is an opioid and to my knowledge it is not mixed in crystal meth. Krokadil is more dangerous in my opinion, but they're both really toxic when made on the street, so I think the main difference that makes one more dangerous than the other is the fact that Krokadil is injected.
calling all addicted people idiots made the rest of your statement invalid.
that's reverse of what I thought I said. people are idiots in general and selfish. people can be addicted and that is likely some trauma and emotional issues. There are people who manage drugs well and people who don't. a relative decided to do marajuana and then see if he could ride a motorcycle. he's lucky the doctors could save him. People are idiots even geniuses. I'm not calling addicts idiots.
I have a very similar opinion
Not quite true, most drugs are very addictive, however caffeine is around equal, or more addictive than: weed, magic mushrooms (shrooms/psilocybin), LSD (acid), ecstasy (MDMA), and anabolic steroids. Keep in mind that caffeine is also a drug. Not all drugs are super addictive, though it is common.Some drugs affect hormones and some don't, regardless that isn't what causes addiction. Generally it is addiction and mental illness that make you crave more, not necessarily hormone levels. Your body feels a withdrawal and in order to counteract the negative feelings caused by withdrawal, you take more. Now there are cases where people just constantly want more, but that's typically because they're addicted to the feeling, and they're scared to feel normal, so as their tolerance grows they smoke more. I smoke a lot of weed, I feel like I have a pretty good understanding of tolerance, though it's very easy for me to just stop smoking and let my tolerance drop, not the same is true for someone addicted to Heroin. I've seen people coming down off heroin, it's actually kinda scary, they get genuine physical reactions like shivering and scratching, and can even have actual flu like symptoms if the withdrawal is bad enough, headaches, cold sweats, etc. It's like actually being sick. I did meth a few times and the withdrawal from that is pretty harsh too, I didn't have much, if any dependence, but coming off it made my entire body sore and tired and I felt heavy for a day or two. Not fun, but I saw a friend who is actually addicted to meth coming off of it once, he slept for multiple days straight and basically only moved to use washroom and drink water.
@devilman666 let’s get some things straight. I was referring to “class 1” drugs. Caffeine is a drug as is sugar however both are legal. Most class 1 drugs will flood the body with dopamine or endorphins. So much so that the body stops producing them. When the body returns to homeostasis and the artificial hormones are filtered out you feel bad because the body has stopped making dopamine and/or endorphins. So you crave more drugs. Each high is followed by a new low and more drugs are required to feel normal. If you stop taking the drug the body will return to homeostasis and will begin to produce natural feel good hormones again. More importantly you should understand the physiology of the human nervous system before advising people about their addictiveness.
Alcohol is more dangerous than we like to admit, but is accepted. Tobacco is pretty bad, but also. accepted to a degree. Doctors love handing out narcotic pain medicine like candy, despite that stuff being incredibly addictive and overdosing easy.It lacks any logic of safety other than how easy is it to tax. Marijuana is a class 1 drug, supposedly both benefit, which is being debunked, but most states, and federal govt. still prohibit recreational use. Some laws are loosening to allow people to grow their own, but above a certain amount, it is taxable.It's always about the money as far as laws are concerned.
True, but also there would be almost no gangs if drugs were legalized, gangs and gang violence can only exist because of the drugs they're selling.Is weed dangerous? Exctasy? LSD? please find me the worst health side effects you can find on these three illegal drugs. Some illegal drugs are not very harmful or addictive, some are very harmful, regardless, it is my opinion that legalization of all drugs is best as it will reduce overdose deaths MASSIVELY (this is a fact, doing drugs alone makes you more likely to overdose, doing drugs with a needle that someone else used increases the risk, using drugs you bought illegally increases the risk of overdose because you don't know what's in it, and finally the fact that you don't necessarily know proper dosage makes it more likely to overdose, if drugs were legal then doctors could explain the proper dosage to you.)Legalization reduces or removes gang violence.Legalization can lower addiction levels through the usage of programs like heroin addicts anonymous, cocaine addicts anonymous, etc.Essentially my argument for legalization of all drugs is that it makes society as a whole far safer, less people killing themselves with drugs, less gang violence, less addicts trying to steal and murder to keep up their habit, etc.
@RickPen oh please, narcotic pain meds? They're fucking handing out FENTANYL as a postoperative pain killer when it's ONLY supposed to be used on cancer patients who are no longer affected by morphine. I'm not even joking, doctors caused this opioid crisis.www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3008378/"Case 1. A patient who had been given a morphine infusion immediately after surgery was discharged the next day. A nurse applied a prescribed fentanyl patch, at a dose of 75 mcg/hour, to the patient’s skin before discharge and gave the patient three patches to take home. The patient also received a prescription for oxycodone (OxyContin, Purdue Pharma), as needed, every four to six hours. Unfortunately, the patient died within 12 hours of discharge."
@devilman666 any opiate based is considered narcotic. Oxycontin is stupidly addictive, and I've been on that before for a blown disc. It's easy to be hooked. I had to stop taking it because being on it just feels great.My dad was on morphine and fentanyl for years, and I saw what that did to him. One good overdose, and falling asleep, while also stopping regular breathing, is common. I know doctors caused the crisis, but those pain medications were deemed safe and legal when they killThese legalized drugs aren't really safe. My initial reply was a condemnation of the idea that they're somehow safer than some of the illegal drugs (marijuana being a primary). Aside from a greater chance of heart attack due to the dilation of blood vessels, which increases heartrate, nobody has died from weed, though the trip is apparently scary for some.
Of course, when people start lying, stealing and become willing to lose everything for sugar.
that's because it is legal
Drugs being illegal isn't why addicts are willing to lose everything and everyone to get them. There are "legal" drugs that cause just as much damage.
umm lol yeah it is
Have you ever had someone you were close to become an addict?
Yes my Mother was totally addicted to bass
obviously much more dangerous than sugar...
@007kingifrit dont be so sure... when you look into it and see the effects on diabetes and cancer rates along with the false sugar rush highs and lows affecting mental health you may think differently but thats a debate for another question here. just wanted to point out some of us have done research into it and thats why i dont do drugs but i also dont have anything containing refined sugar
@wankiam yea none of that is equal to the single use of heroine that can destroy your lifeyou argue like a teenager, you ignore all the variables to focus on one thing without understanding it in contextobviously sugar is not dangerous, obviously heroine is. to compare the two and come to the conclusion sugar is in the same calliber of danger as heroine would make you stupidthis is what happens when someone gets lost in technical arguments and ignores common sense
Tobacco is more addictive than: weed, magic muchrooms, LSD (acid) MDMA (exctasy), and anabolic steroids, which are all illegal without a special prescription, which is to say that they are illegal, because doctors can hand out any drug with a prescription, including fentanyl.XD when people start stealing and willing to lose everything for weed I will agree that weed should be illegal."Drugs being illegal isn't why addicts are willing to lose everything and everyone to get them. There are "legal" drugs that cause just as much damage" so why are some drugs legal and others aren't? If they're equally bad then why is LSD illegal and tobacco legal? (Tobacco is actually far worse and more addictive than LSD/acid by the way).Yes, I've known a few addicts in my life, I've tried quite a few drugs and known many drug dealers and addicts, some I knew before and some I met after. I have a childhood friend who was addicted to meth, I saw him coming off of it and it was terrible, he slept for like 4 days straight, only waking up to drink and use washroom, and even then he could barely wake up to do that because the withdrawal was making him extremely lethargic (meth addicts can die of dehydration while coming off of it because of how bad the lethargy is)
@devilman666 30% of marijuana users have some form of addiction. This is far higher than other legal drugs that pot heads normally want to compare to like coffee or alcohol www.drugabuse.gov/.../marijuana-addictive
@007kingifrit tbh you argue like a teenager, you are ignoring so many variables and you have no context of why drugs exist in our society or how they impact our society, or how to fix the problem.I'll break down your argument, then show you some context."Yea none of that is equal to the single use of heroin that can destroy your life.", this is dishonest and actually untrue, yes a single use of heroin can be life ending, but it also can have a negligible impact on your life. So a single use of heroin CAN destroy your life, and long term sugar addiction CAN also destroy your life. Heroin is more likely to destroy your life, but pretending like there are almost no potential risks to sugar while overplaying the potential risks of heroin is simply dishonest.
@devilman666 I can't say why some drugs are illegal while others are not. That wasn't the question I was answering. That's not to say that drugs being illegal is stopping anything from doing them. I'm just saying the problem with illegal drugs is what they can lead people to do with their lives. That's also a problem with some legal drugs too. Weed is becoming legal in a lot of places. I figure it's only a matter of time before it's legal everywhere.
@007kingifrit "Obviously sugar is not dangerous", this is objectively untrue, anyone with type 2 diabetes if proof that this wrong. "Obviously heroine is (dangerous)", this is also objectively untrue, Heroine CAN be dangerous, but using heroin once won't necessarily destroy your life, just like how overindulging in sugar won't necessarily give you diabetes. "To compare the two and come to the conclusion (that) sugar is in the same caliber of danger as heroin would make you stupid", I actually agree with you on this one, they're both dangerous to some extent, almost everything is dangerous to some extent, but heroin has a much higher chance of having adverse effects and it requires much less heroin to have adverse effects. If someone took an equal amount of sugar and heroin then heroin has a higher chance of causing problems, my point is that it depends on a number of factors such as how much was used, for how long you've been using, health factors, etc.Why drugs exist: multitude of reasons but drugs have played a huge role throughout our history, britain got the chinese addicted to opium once so they could make money off of poppies (true story actually). During ww1 soldiers were often given cocaine and heroin to help them during long trips and keep them alert during battle. Ww2 was all about amphetamines, specifically methamphetamine, which was a favorite of the Nazis and was used for a variety of purposes including increasing the awareness of pilots. Much more recently fentanyl has been given out inappropriately by doctors which is causing the biggest opioid crises ever. I will provide evidence below. Which is to say that societies drug problem was created by society in general, not just drug addicts.
@007kingifrit I said I would provide evidence:www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3008378/"Case 1. A patient who had been given a morphine infusion immediately after surgery was discharged the next day. A nurse applied a prescribed fentanyl patch, at a dose of 75 mcg/hour, to the patient’s skin before discharge and gave the patient three patches to take home. The patient also received a prescription for oxycodone (OxyContin, Purdue Pharma), as needed, every four to six hours. Unfortunately, the patient died within 12 hours of discharge."
@devilman666 yea you have to consume excess amounts of sugar for decades to get diabetes... its not dangerous. ANYTHING will cause disorders if consumed like thatcomparing to drugs is just stupid. once again you miss the boat by making technical arguments that ignore context
@Uannoyme of course, anything that's illegal is just moved to the black market, there is almost no way to remove a substance without reducing the demand for that substance to 0, people will try to find any way to acquire what they want. This happens with everything, make guns illegal they'll be on the black market, make alcohol illegal and the mafia will return. All illegal substances are available, they're just not legally available.Yeah it can lead them to do shitty things but you can't just make them stop, once someone is deeply addicted they will often give up almost anything for the drug, making it illegal makes these people more reclusive to hide their problems and less likely to seek help. Also, you can't just force them to stop, they will often run from help because they are afraid of the withdrawal. Making it legal makes it easier for people to try to get help, and companies can make patches/products to help with the withdrawal. Finally, non-drug addicts are at risk of deatroying their lives too, there are many risks in this world, and I don't kind allowing people to choose to take those risks if they are properly informed, aware, and give consent. Why should someone be imprisoned for choosing to risk his own health? Yes some drug addicts do bad things but you can't just make all drug addicts guilty of every crime comitted by a drug addict.True that, doctors are inappropriately precribing fentanyl and it's legal because it's prescribed xDwww.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3008378/Case 1. A patient who had been given a morphine infusion immediately after surgery was discharged the next day. A nurse applied a prescribed fentanyl patch, at a dose of 75 mcg/hour, to the patient’s skin before discharge and gave the patient three patches to take home. The patient also received a prescription for oxycodone (OxyContin, Purdue Pharma), as needed, every four to six hours. Unfortunately, the patient died within 12 hours of discharge.
@devilman666 I don't disagree that drug users shouldn't be treated as criminals simply for using drugs. But when they commit crimes in order to facilitate their habit, they absolutely should. I'm not really sure why this has become a discussion about other things people do that can be harmful. Just because there are other things that are harmful doesn't negate the damage some drugs can do.
@007kingifrit not necessarily, you sre far too black and white with this viewpoint of yours. It's a field of gray, there is no black and no white.You don't need to consume excess amounts of sugar for decades to get diabetes, for exampke if you have a smaller body weight or a health condition then you could be at an increased risk of getting diabetes, it's true that diabetes takes a span of time but you really don't need to eat that much sugar daily to get diabetes, it does need to be a span of multiple years but not necessarily a decade. It's also most likely that you will not get addicted to heroin the first time you use it, it usually requires constant use to become addicted."It's not dangerous", well that is simply untrue. This is like saying water is not toxic because you have to consume a lot of it to die, water is toxic, to some extent. Overdose on water is called hyponatremia and it's very common by the way, because water is toxic.my.clevelandclinic.org/.../17762-hyponatremiaThis idea that everyday things CAN'T be dangerous is stupid.
You're not wrong that the human body CAN (you put "anything will", but you meant "anything can") suffer negative consequences from anything, unfortantely human beings aren't infinite, so the amount of any substance we can handle is limited. However there are many predispositions which can make something more or less dangerous to you. Further, this seems to be more of an argument agreeing with me, if all substances can cause disorders then all substances are dangerous to some extent. We can make the statement that heroin has an increased risk when compared with sugar, I agree with that, but this idea that sugar is never dangerous but heroin is ALWAYS dangerous, is simply narrow minded and stupid. Everything can be dangerous in the right circumstances and anything can be safe in the right circumstances, after all you can train yourself to become immune to small doses of cyanide, in fact Rasputin (a Russian leader prior to ww1), reportedly survived an assassination attempt that used cyanide due to a tolerance he had built up by purposely ingesting it because he was paranoid that someone would try to poison him.I disagree, we can compare and contrast any two things without it necessarily being stupid or a waste of time. There are some similarities between sugar and drugs.
Technical arguments? How do I ignore context and what context do I ignore?XD 30%, and what percentage of tobacco smokers are addicted to nicotine? Pfffft hahaha it's funny that you thought that was some kind of gotcha xD also that isn't saying 30% are addicted it means 30% experience withdrawal symptoms."Marijuana use disorders are often associated with dependence—in which a person feels withdrawal symptoms when not taking the drug.", with that in mind, please tell me how many coffee drinkers experience withdrawal when they go a day without coffee, I bet you can't because nobody cares about withdrawal when it deals with coffee, but when it comes to weed, all of a sudden withdrawal=some degree of addiction.
Your link goes on to say: "Marijuana use disorder becomes addiction when the person cannot stop using the drug even though it interferes with many aspects of his or her life. Estimates of the number of people addicted to marijuana are controversial, in part because epidemiological studies of substance use often use dependence as a proxy for addiction even though it is possible to be dependent without being addicted. Those studies suggest that 9% of people who use marijuana will become dependent on it,24,25 rising to about 17% in those who start using in their teens.", tbh idek where tbey got the 30% number from because they literally go on to say that depence is not addiction, and studies show that dependence on weed is well below 30%, yet they still start off with the claim that 30% of weed smokers have SOME DEGREE OF ADDICTION... Which is incredibly dishonest because it fails to define what "Some degree of addiction" even means, it offers multiple statistics and multiple definitions for weed depence/addiction, and they constantly swap between "dependence", "addiction", "marijuana use disorder" without defining any of them. For example the 30% thing is specifically talking about marijuana use disorder which is defined as "Cannabis use disorder is a diagnosis that is given for problematic marijuana use." Problematic marijuana use: "problematic use of cannabis or marijuana was separated into two different disorders, cannabis abuse, and cannabis dependence."Canabis abuse: Cannabis (marijuana) abuse is a pattern of use that causes physical or mental problems.As you can see that whole article is extremely dishonest, as it tries to make you think cannabis use disorder is the same as addiction, when really they are very general terms that mean basically mean nothing. Cannabis abuse if any pattern of cannabis use that causes problems and cannabis dependence basically just means you experience withdrawals. Neither are specific towards addiction in any meaningful way.
@Uannoyme I agree, everyone needs to be punished for their choices, you can't drive drunk just because you want to go pick up more alcohol so you can't steal money to go pick up more drugs. But people are imprisoned in america for possession, which is to say they had a small amount because if they had too much they would be charged with "intent to sell", on top of the possession charges.This never became solely about other things people do that can be harmful, I brought that up to show that such behaviour is not exclusive to drug addicts. I already explained why I think legalizing drugs will reduce addicts, reduce violence overall, and heavily reduce overdose deaths. I think legalizing drugs would be overall better for our society than the current model. If you can suggest how to remove drugs from 24/7 then go ahead, but until then we need to do something about the drug addiction and overdose crises, obviously the current solution is not working and it seems to be continuing to get worse.
@devilman666 I own that I am not completely objective on the subject, as my ex husband somehow became addicted to opioid pain pills (legal) and moved on to crack. He would disappear for days, binging until there was nothing left. He stole everything he could get his hands on. He literally took everything of value that his mother had and sold it all to get crack. He ended up in a homeless shelter and a friend loaned him a bike to get to work. He traded it for crack. I lost almost everything because of crack and I've never touched the stuff. I can't make the leap to say it would be better if such things were legal.We can help addicts while punishing dealers and manufacturers.
Yeah, it's crazy how much you can be willing to give up when you are terrified of the consequences of not doing it. He got addicted legally, once he was addicted it wasn't fully his fault, he still made the choice, but it's similar to getting threatened into it, because he will be punished by his body if he doesn't continue using.To be clear when I say legal I don't mean just dumped into the free market like candy, I mean with regulations, keeping them away from minors, ensuring all users know the risks beforehand, making sure they know they have other options such as anonymous support groups, and making sure they know that they can get over the addiction if they choose to. If people choose to do drugs then they will do them whether they are legal or illegal, so the best you can do is ensure the drugs aren't laced, and ensure the person knows that when they want help, when they want to get over their fear and addiction, they can get help, and they can get over their fear and addiction. Making it illegal means the only way to deal with drug addicts is to throw them in prison.
Yes, we can help addicts while punishing illegal dealers and manufacturers. However there is absolutely no way to completely remove the dealers and manufacturers from this planet, even if we shot them all into space tomorrow, the demand would still be there, and then within a week after tomorrow there would be a new wave kingpin drug dealers, this would mainly be addicts who still want their supply of drug, so they move to dealing the drug, because otherwise their would be no supply to feed their demand. Essentially, as long as there is demand for a drug, there will always be supply. Therefore punishing dealers and manufacturers will never fix the problem, it is a cycle, so when one dealer goes to prison, two more take his place. Further, it would be much easier to help addicts if it was legal.Legalizing drugs is the only way to reduce the demand, legalization itself doesn't reduce the demand, but it allows you to take action in ways that will reduce demand.
How do you want to help addicts while punishing dealers and manufacturers? What is your plan?
@devilman666 the point is you need to take an extreme and rare example or excessive consumption to make your point... i only need to point to any use of heroineso obviously sugar isn't as dangerous as drugs. its just childish to say it is
@007kingifrit im 53 and well able to debate rather than argue which is possibly why i dont resort to patronizing people or trying to insult them but regardlesss of your techniques for getting your point across i would like to point out that there are very few drug addicts in comparison to people like you who seem to think refined sugar in all our modern foods is fine. i suppose you think flouridation of drinking water is ''ok'' to but its not my fault if you can't take the time to research stuff before you comment
@wankiam you're going down a conspiracy rabbit hole now
@007kingifrit am i indeed... seems more like you are the victim of the hydra effect, not me
@007kingifrit any use of heroin? Do you think heroin makes you instantly addicted after using it once?Of course, obviously sugar isn't as dangerous as drugs, I already said that. I was just pointing out that sugar can be dangerous, which you said it can't be dangerous, and that heroin isn't always dangerous, though I admit it usually is. As an example of that, Hydromorphone is an opiod that is around as strong as heroin and it is prescribed by doctors for pain relief, so clearly opioids can be used safely and without addiction. Admittedly there is a difference between recreational use and precription use, recreational use tends to go farther and be more dangerous, but the point still stands that dangerous drugs like heroin aren't always going to ruin your life. Another example of that is that I've done cocaine, crack, and meth, multiple times each, never got addicted to any of them. Was it smart? Eh, the cocaine and crack wasn't too stupid of me in my opinion, I was quite responsible with it, but admittedly the meth was really quite stupid and irresponsible, I did too much, for too long, and acted irresponsibly while high. Did it ruin my life? No, the meth put me into a little bit of debt, but it didn't ruin my life. Again, I'm not saying it was smart or that everyone should try drugs, I'm just making another example of where dangerous drugs aren't life ruining. The point is that anything can be life threatening, and anything can be used safely, in the right circumstances.
@devilman666 yes a single use of heroine is addictive
@007kingifrit you need to do some research, because that is simply not the case. A single use can lead to addiction, but the idea that the first time you use heroin, you are isntantly addicted, is nonsense and shows that you don't even unserstand what addiction is.Addiction: physically and mentally dependent on a particular substance, and unable to stop taking it without incurring adverse effects.It takes repeated use to become physucally dependent on a substance, even if the substance gives you cravings to continue using, that is not dependence or addiction.
@devilman666 yes you can get addicted after one use, not everyone will, but you can
That's all drugs, not just illegal ones lmao. Caffeine is more addictive than weed, yet weed is illegal in most places and coffee is legal in most places. Caffeine, tobacco, alcohol, they are all drugs that are addictive and can cause negative effects to your health. Hell, in the USA doctors were giving out Fentanyl like it was candy, "you have neck pain? Here, try this new pain killer", even though it was specifically designed to only be used to treat cancer patients and people who otherwise were unnaffected by weaker pain killers.www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3008378/"Case 1. A patient who had been given a morphine infusion immediately after surgery was discharged the next day. A nurse applied a prescribed fentanyl patch, at a dose of 75 mcg/hour, to the patient’s skin before discharge and gave the patient three patches to take home. The patient also received a prescription for oxycodone (OxyContin, Purdue Pharma), as needed, every four to six hours. Unfortunately, the patient died within 12 hours of discharge."(He was using a legal drug since it was prescribed by a doctor).
Sometimes u can even test ur pill at a festival or club to see if u got a non dangerous 1
