Where’s my Oxycontin?

    Today, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) stated that more people die from prescription pain killers than cocaine and heroine combined.

   Oxycodone – used to relieve pain; an opiate analgesics (narcotic); works by changing the way the brain and nervous system respond to pain.  Possible side effects: erratic heart rate, difficulty breathing, rash, swelling of face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, hands, feet or lower legs, seizures, loss of consciousness, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, and/or constipation.   Hmmm…  medical marijuana anyone?
