    When it comes to drugs nothing is strange. How about a mother concealing drugs on her baby then begging an officer to have the father, who is going to jail be allowed to hug his baby. The officer refused for excactly that reason. How many bleeding hearts would criticize the officer for being heartless. When the mother stormed off the drugs fell from under the babies blanket...As I said when it comes to drugs nothing is strange......

    Where are these addicted people getting their prescription drugs? Don't often hear of drug stores being robbed. They're getting them from people who have prescriptions for them. Who is responsible for giving these people prescriptions for medicinal drugs? Everybody knows it has to be a doctor. A big part of the drug addiction problem on PEI goes back to irresponsible doctors over- prescribing drugs to people who are then selling them. They have to be aware of this unless they're totally blind to the drug problem on PEI or just don't care. I'm sure there are a lot of druggists on PEI who must be aware this is happening also. I suppose they're scared to speak up because it means a loss of business for them. Why is there so much cover up when it comes to the easy access to prescription drugs when our new drug system makes everything to traceable?

      these drugs are not coming from pei pharmacies they are being shipped here in large quantities and being sold and dealers are buying them. it has nothing to do with doctors and prescriptions.

      Well first and foremost, PEI doesn't have enough doctors so the ones we do have are pretty busy. Unfortunately there's not a lot of time when you have people that really do need drugs to investigate who is taking them and who isn't. All you really have to do is be in some pain or have depression to get a prescription. some doctors are tougher than others. We are very fortunate to have any doctors at all. With that said, a lot of the drugs aren't coming from doctors and the pill problem extends far beyond PEI and Canada as a whole. It's worse in a lot of places.

      As a recovered drug addict I can tell you many do come from people who are prescribed to them but sell them instead of taking them. Many of the people who get the scripts are getting them paid for by social services or workers comp. Then each pill can sell for 15 to 80 buck each so it is a big incentive to ask your doctor to keep uping your script amount when you are making that kind of money off free bottle of pills. What should be done is those that are prescribed should be randomly called back to pharmacy for pill counts to make sure they have the number of pills left according to how many they are prescribed to per day. Yes some do come from away in large quanities but this would catch a lot who are selling their scripts
