‹ A man fights for his life after being shot in Sikeston… › I would suppose when they can’t get more drugs they may kill to get them. I know a lot of people with chronis pain who are crazed maniacs slaughtering people in anger. And I know a LOT of people who don’t do any drugs who crazy things. What does that mean? The studies are worth the paper they are written on. Use everything as prescribed and you should be ok. Some will falter and go cray cray but they most likely had the path for that prior.
