Because of these new drug laws, I have to go to the doctor every month now to get my medication refilled. That's an $80 a month fee plus my medications which are $120 and a $35 dollar urine test to prove I am taking my medications. All because little joey is a doper

I have been taking these same medications for over 7 years. I am outraged that now I have a $105 extra charge every month just to get my medications because of these stupid new laws to 'protect' little joey. I  am in chronic pain from a head on car accident. In addition, I have rheumatoid  arthritis.  I am in chronic pain every day... all day!!!!

I don't care about these doper kids. I am not my brother's keeper. Their parents should be supervising their kids and keeping dangerous things out of their hands.  

I resent that you are making me jump through hoops and pay lots of money because some stupid kid isn't being supervised. This is outrageous that you are forcing  the normal law abiding citizens to suffer because these parents can't control their kids. I resent the fact that these stupid laws, that have nothing to do with me,  are forcing me to  pay at least $105 a month extra for the benefit of some stupid doper kid. 

Why don't you get  a law passed that forces everyone to be responsible for their own behavior and the behavior of their children? Why don't you pass a law that forces the parents to be responsible for the doper kid and not some stranger like me that is just trying to take care of herself? Why don't you stop pointing the finger of responsibility at everyone except the kid and the parent?

It isn't my fault or responsibility that some kid is overdosing on drugs that he shouldn't be taking.  The problem isn't that I am taking medication. The problem is that parents aren't supervising their children. Why don't these parent's lock up the medications and take charge of their own kids? Stop policing me and police these kids.

I did know that. It is one of the reasons I made the decision to use only non-narcotic methods to deal with the pain of the MS I live with. My history of addiction dictated that decision.

Story
Partnership for Drug-Free Kids is dedicated to reducing substance abuse among adolescents by supporting families and engaging with teens. We develop public education campaigns that drive awareness of teen substance abuse, and lead teen-targeted efforts that inspire young people to make positive decisions to stay healthy and avoid drugs and alcohol. On our website, drugfree.org, and through our toll-free helpline (1-855-DRUGFREE), we provide families with direct support and guidance to help them address teen substance abuse. Finally, we build healthy communities, advocating for great access to adolescent treatment and funding for youth prevention programs. As a national nonprofit, we depend on donations from individuals, corporations, foundations and the public sector and are thankful to SAG-AFTRA and the advertising and media industries for their ongoing generosity.
