    Is it no wonder that only 20/10% of the doctors/pharmacies have bothered to sign up??

    Non-Emergency Medicine is nothing more than being a legal professional drug dealer....Why do you think you can't walk into a doctor's office without seeing at least 10+ pharmaceutical company advertisements...


    So.. I can see why the Sheriff's would want access... someone has to actually do something about this crap... it certainly isn't going to be the folks who are making the profits off of it. So why not the guys who have to play clean-up from the **** that it causes?
    Why do we keep making the same mistake? Going after the small-fry-user? I think it's wrong to violate a person's right to privacy so that the sheriff's office can correlate and count how many pills someone is using. They're hooked. Their drug dealer is their doctor(s). He gets $125 a script. The office visit. I'm all for law enforcement having access to the doctor database that shows how many narcotics a doctor is prescribing out of his office. But I don't think law enforcement should be knockin' on somebody's door and asking why they take so many pills.

    Thats the thing........
    One might think a doc shopper is just a really bad junkie.... but they aren't......
    They are the front man... the doctor/pharmacy is the middle man.

    Individual doc shops to fill a bunch of prescriptions.
    Then he sells the individual pills on the street for 10, 20, 30 bucks a pill.........

    That isn't the small fry user you were talking about is it?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Re: Sheriffs Want Access to Prescription Database

    HIPAA just passed a ruling last July that states that you do not have to give your prescription drug information to your employer. I'm sure they'll be all over this in a matter of time.

    The privacy is to insure that your data doesn't get sold to insurance companies, or can be looked up by prospective employers.

    Why does law enforcement always have to be at the expense of the law abiding citizens?

    More people in their counties die of accidental overdoses than from homicides, the sheriffs said.
    That definitely doesn't make it right.

    I've never seen an addiction as a reason for the police to be involved - and addiction is psychological, physical, emotional . . . all things that the police *don't* have experience in.

    What can the police do? Throw you in jail - that's all.
    What is that going to *fix* though? We're talking about parents, teachers - people who have others that depend on them to make it through their day. If wrong and ineffective action is taken against them we're just screwing people over.

    Haven't we learned that there's more to these types of issues than "get them off the streets?" 3 strikes your out isn't working - nor are other blunt approaches to the problem.

    But it's proven that when someone takes the time to learn, understand and be supportive the person struggling with their problems sees more success in getting past it.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I'll ask like I often do in these scenarios.

    What is it costing you?

    You've proven just how little you know about what law enforcement does.........

    It isn't our job to just throw people in jail.

    We are problem solvers who fill a great number of roles other than just tossing people in jail.

    nope. i believe they can get access with a warrant, however, which is the way it should be.

    I've actually changed my opinion on this after reading Caine's post at #12.
