My son has lost his life at 23 years old due to an overdose of prescription drugs. My family and I will grieve for the rest of our lives. I am so upset that doctors are prescribing Methadone to their patients to break a drug addiction. This drug is so freely used and no one has a clue that it is deadly. The only thing they know is that they can make money off selling it as a recreational drug. It is disgusting people can get a prescription, then turn around and sell the medication for a profit. When are we going to stop these pain clinics from prescribing drugs for resale? I know the police have their hands tied, because the have a prescription for such drugs as Xanax, Methadone, Valium, Oxycontin, and the list goes on. How many more children are we going to lose? Why is the same circle of people making a living off selling the drugs to our children? Why are these people not going to jail or drug rehab and why are these doctors having the right to murder by prescription? Patricia Levine
