    My cousin's wife, who beat alcoholism and drug addiction, was put on OxyContin for her chronic back pain. She explained to them her history and they said she would not become addicted to it as it was formulated differently. Anyway, you know what happened and it was a nightmare for her to recover from it. She lived near Boston where it was pushed hard.

    In an ideal world governments, big pharma, scientists and doctors would all be working towards curing people. In an ideal world like that most diseases would've already been solved I reckoned. Alas we're left with people who care more about money and reputation than they do about making the world just a bit better.
