Ban them for legitimate use because they might also have illegitimate uses. By that same logic we could stop bank robbery if we shut down all the banks.
Or are you one of those people who needs a laugh track to know what you're supposed to do?
Well, Just Amen! Unless someone has to live with chronic, moderate to severe pain, they just don't know what it's all about. My dope is 10-325 (Norco) up to 5 times daily and I get my liver and various organs checked regularly because of the acetaminophen. So far, so good. I used to get 10-650 but at my request the doc agreed to lessen the acetaminophen and I can't tell any difference.
I don't care if people think I'm a doper, it helps alleviate some awful pain. I'm 66 years old now, it sure as heck isn't going to make me die young.
