Manchester, Ky. - I would like to know what we're celebrating.
Sure, the availability of prescription pain medication has been drastically reduced thanks to HB1 and KASPER, but the use of non-prescription narcotics has rose dramatically.
Not to mention the number of people who have been depending on suboxone - which is meant to be short term therapy - for years now.
Hep C and HIV are out of control thanks to the number of drug users who's preferred method of consumption is now injection, and policy makers want to celebrate this?
I guess they can celebrate legislating our drug culture from a prescription abusing population into an I.V. drug use population.
With that being said, I have nothing against UNITE and I'm thankful for all they have done.
