Have you, or any family or friends, had any experiences with prescription depressants such as valium, oxycontin, benzodiazepine, vicodin, xanax, etc? If so, and you would like to share, please describe the experience. Do you know anyone who has had any experience “Dr. Shopping.” If so, describe the process. By most measures, prescription drug abuse is a greater health issue than illicit drug use.( please answer no on this part) That being said, why are we, as a culture, so obsessed with so-called ‘street’ drugs while we more or less ignore the prescription drug problem? Why has Florida, particularly Broward County, been the heart of ‘Script Mills’ and ‘Dr. Shopping’? What is being done to combat this problem in Florida?
