While feds squash medical marijuana, they lament painkiller overdose deaths | The NORML Stash Blog

I am the producer of The NORML Network, the host of the NORML SHOW LIVE and The NORML Stash Blog, and NORML's Outreach Coordinator. I'm married, live in Portland, Oregon, and I am a registered medical marijuana caregiver in this state. I've worked days as an IT geek and nights as a professional musician. Previously, I have been the host of my own political talk radio show on satellite radio. I've been the High Times "Freedom Fighter of the Month" and I travel across the country to educate people on marijuana reform. I've dedicated my life to bringing an end to adult marijuana prohibition and re-legalizing cannabis hemp, and I'm honored to be chosen by NORML to give voice to the Marijuana Nation and to speak for those who can't speak up.

    [...] The Associated Press has crunched the numbers regarding the massive increase of oxycodone use in the United States from 2000-2010.  It comes as no surprise to us at The Stash, given that the DEA has approved a 1200% increase in oxycodone production during the medical marijuana era.  When asked why the DEA would allow such a massive increase in the production of a dangerous Schedule II substance with high potential for abuse, DEA Special Agent Gary Boggs explained that they have to make enough oxy for the abusers to ensure the patients get their share.  No, seriously… READ MORE HERE [...]

    My back was shot and it was difficult to get pain meds as the doctors are so concerned with abuse. All my doc would give me is Tylenol but he did sign my MMJ recommendation. Finally after years of dealing with the pain I had back surgery where they fused three of my vertebra in 2009. I woke up with a morphine drip later got the push button Demerol on demand for the rest of the week. I got home with my script of Percocet with instructions to take two pills as needed for pain. Well, I took one pill and one joint for the next two months. Then to wean me off the perks they gave me Vicodin and I took half of what they prescribed and a joint. When it came time to quit the Vicodin I just had joints. Yeah, I missed the crap for a couple of days but after that I was feeling great. A lot of people come out of a procedure and end up hooked. It is criminal that everyone isn’t offered cannabis during recovery from operations and for help quiting those nasty pain pills.

    If it wasn’t for the weed I’d be searching for perks right now.
