    can we start a new site for that cara? addicts seeking MDs

    and i get the liability concerns. it's just silly that i could probably get prescription pills more easily on the black market than from my doctor and i have a legitimate medical concern that drives an alarming number of people to suicide. and that none of my doctors would ever prescribe medical marijuana because of federal laws.

    Knowing what I know about you all, I'd hesitate to give you travel-sized Asprin. Little lone strong narcotics.

    If you guys need MDs to prescribe you whatever, come to Utah: the state with the highest rate of prescription drug abuse in the nation, and home to tons of docs perfectly willing to write people multiple prescriptions. Alcohol: bad. Street drugs: really bad. Rx drugs: awesome. Our prohibitionist-curious Legislature and non-imbibing (and largely religious) public has until very recently had no problem whatsoever with stuff like this.

    You should take some acid about 4 hours before your next appointment and "spill the beans".

    I don't give two shits about what my doctor thinks, it's insurance companies everyone should be terrified of. I used to smoke cigarettes and at one point I had my doctor write me a prescription for Chantix in a an attempt to get some help quitting. It didn't take and I ended quitting cold turkey a year later. Wish I would have just done that to begin with because when I was recently applying for health insurance Blue Cross was able to see that I was prescribed Chantix and obviously smoked at one time, thus raising my rate.

    In the midst of reevaluating. How much do you share?

    Carry two bags, your personal bag and the bag you let people "borrow", that way you never reveal your whole stash, nor do you look stingy.

    Share everything! If you don't give them all the info, they may give you something that reacts with your recreational or medical needs. You don't want to the problems of a reaction. It sucks. I know.

    They can't say anything if it's illegal or you can sue the pants off them.

    If you're ODing on something and need medical attention and you don't mention this fact to the medics, you're kind of the dumbest.

    ODing is kind of a different situation than this thread is talking about.
