SHOW-ME JUNKIE PILL MILL MISSOURI THANKS TO GOP SEN. ROB SHCHAAF!!!



Internets news isn't afraid to call out a Missouri GOP politico and connect his stubbornness to a dangerous drug epidemic in Missouri.

Vice News: With No Monitoring Program, Missouri Is a Haven for Prescription Drug Addicts

Read the whole thing, the excellent article even DRAWS A MAP of how Missouri is serving as a distribution center for crooked docs to get junkies hooked up.

Here are the highlights:

"The revolutionary concept of a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) would tone down some of the more Machiavellian business strategies in the prescription world, both for doctors and traffickers. When users or drug dealers in other states try to get their prescription filled more than once, an alert is sent to doctors and law enforcement. Not being able to double-dip on your prescription forces you to be imaginative when figuring out how to run your pill trafficking operation. Large swaths of abusers are slowed by this simple step, but somehow, Missouri is the only state that doesn’t have a PDMP. This can largely be blamed on their state leader, Sen. Rob Schaaf, R-St. Joseph.



"If they overdose and kill themselves, it just removes them from the gene pool,” Sen. Schaaf said during an eight-hour filibuster he led against a pill monitoring program bill in 2012"

It gets worse . . .

"The New York Times published a front-page story on Missouri’s refusal to employ a PDMP program. But their piece opted not to connect the trend to the growing heroin problem in cities and towns across the country, particularly St. Louis' heroin epidemic."

The consequences . . .

"Medical examiners, advocates and health officials. They all recognize the problem as an epidemic, they see it growing in their hospitals and on their streets, and they can’t wrap their head around why a monitoring program hasn’t been established yet.

“It’s bad, it really is," Collier told me. "The reported usage is going way up, the death rates are going way up. This is a huge problem, and it’s been a decade in the making."

The PDMP is bullshit and designed to turn your grandmother into a criminal while Holder turns thousands of hardcore drug dealers out of federal prisons. If you doctor shop and kill yourself that is your problem. We don't need the federal or state pumping your stomach and then throwing you in prison. Fuck this bog brother shit.

My doctor, a shrink that I used to go to all the time, he says that in fifty or sixty percent of the cases, a pill really helps. I *hate* pills, very dangerous thing, pills. Hate. I'm using the word "hate" here, about pills. Hate. My compliment is, that night when you came over and told me that you would never... all right, well, you were there, you know what you said. Well, my compliment to you is, the next morning, I started taking the pills.

Hasn't someone told you Tony that both italic and allcaps are hard to read?

We learned to read using school bookman. A wider version of Arial.

I think eyes will naaturally skip both italic and allcaps because reading takes too much work.

Wonder if Tonys ever tried to read his site on a smartphone, which most people now use?

Most of the OD problem is white trash. Most white trash is Republican. Ergo, you get an addict like Rush Limbaugh becoming your leader. And you gave him a bronze bust in the Capitol!

You could say that removing someone from the gene pool is a solution in regard to allowing many types of behavior, doesn't really mean it should be allowed. Bogus argument.

The only real justification for Missouri to be there is to allow Kansans the comfort of knowing that there are states even more backward than their own.

If we were going to pass laws simply based on behaviour it would be a capital offense for Al Sharpton to ever posses a microphone
