“I am sure it could be done. I sign a waiver; pay for any complications out of pocket for a 48 hour erecti.on, and get the prescription. Big pharma educates doctors these days, to the point of becoming living pamphlets. If you read the pamphlet, do you need the doctor?”

“Got to be careful ordering on-line, you realize. Lots of fakes (and some dangerous ones).”
“Let us outsource the professionals, not just insource and outsource the service jobs. I want to be able to be represented at trial by a cheaper lawyer via Skype; and I know what is wrong with me all I need is a prescription, I should be able to get one from a global doctor for ten dollars. Make free trade and globalization apply on all levels.”

“If you want a prescription from a doctor in a third world country then you should have to go to the hospital in that country when your self diagnosis is wrong. It'll will help lower the insurance cost for the rest of us.”
“Speaking for myself, if I moved to Japan or France. I think it behooves me to learn some of the native speakers customs and language, that would be smart because it would make my own life easier in the new country.”

“Well..I am speaking for myself, I was born and raised in Europe for 25 years and learned to speak 5 languages, courtesy of the school system there. I personally think it is great if one can speak more then one language, thus for me that means why not learn Spanish?”

“Before I made my move to Moldova I started serious work with Russian. In six months in country I could carry on a simple conversation. In a year I could handle everything but scientific.”
“I thought I was reading an article about Kroger employees refusing to eat until they got a new contract. "If someone can work at the same job for roughly a decade and not see a raise, Garcia wonders, then what kind of promise does American employment actually hold?"
That is the deal with illegal employment, it is not really "American employment". Anyone who is outside the labor laws is in a kind of legal limbo and easily abused, many employers prefer this kind of worker...because they can be abused. Working as a chef I see it everyday, and I feel the downward pressure on my own wages.”
“I support LAPD. I know the deal in Skid Row. I believe it's the only neutral territory where all gangs can operate freely. I have worked on movie production down there and seen the poor prostitutes/ "strawberries" working out of porta-potties for another hit. I do believe there are many who choose to live that lifestyle; where they get an SSI check for example, and live it up for one week...then live hard for three weeks. There are people who have realized, you can smoke more crack when you don't have to pay rent. I think there are people who are just going to be that way...as long as they aren't harming others, then they can destroy themselves. Definitely not an easy issue though; the line of harm is often fuzzy and requires well honed discretion.”

“Thank You for your support. We as cops are not out to get the users. What we want is to get the predators. The ones who live the good life, making money on children, mentally ill people, prostitutes and so forth. Interestingly most dealers don't use the drugs they sell. They know very well the end result of addiction.
I don't have the solution. I don't think there is a perfect one. I just don't want to see another young person die from snorting cocaine that wasn't cut right. Or a child die because their parents had a meth lab. My worst day on the job was dealing with an infant boy whose dad had bit off his, (privates), while on a bad trip. Dad boy will never be the same. And his dad is in prison for life. And I'm glad about that.
I've been on patrol for 16 years. Started at 22. The more I see the less I like humanity. If you see a female cop, It might be me, ask for Office "O". Central Div, Skid Row, night shift. Be safe.”
“If you look at crime, most street crime happens because somebody needs money for drugs. This funnels all the money generated to the black market, if the supply is cut the price just goes up. That means whoever supplies the drugs, reaps the benefit...it is Al Capone economics 101. If you look at heroin, people could get a prescription and not have to focus so much on getting money for the next dose. Crack and meth are more difficult, because you can't really give a prescription for crack. That said, it should be an issue that we can be open to criticize and review. Clearly the drug war is not working.”

“I agree somewhat. I'm a cop (don't spit), I know it's an emotional issue, and it should be. I work in L.A., and there are many gangs. People are familiar with the Bloods and the Crips, but they are nothing. Most of the dangerous gangs are Colombian, Asian, and Russian. Some deal in weapons some with drugs. I've seen the devastation.
Methadone, used commonly for heroin addiction and other opiates, is rarely efficient. It by the way is commonly sold on the black market too, by drug addicts themselves.
I, and many in law enforcement agree that the war on drugs is not working. We need a complete overhaul not only from legislators but from society. Drug use is an illness, but let's be realistic, it is almost always an illness of choice. No one is unware that these drugs are harmful, and yet a person makes that choice. Most offenders in jail or prison are not there because they used a drug, but because the committed a crime usually violent. They have access to medical help psychiatric, psychological aid in prison. That is where a lot of the finances go. . , drugs are rampant in the prisons. But when corrections officers, check the cells, the ACLU has a fit about privacy.
They biggest drugs in use today by the youth are prescription drugs. They are sold in high schools, middle schools and so forth. That is a huge black market. How are you going to deal with that?”
