This is so depressing. I REALLY hope Amendment 4 passes! The voter suppression is horrible... we don't need Russians to screw with our elections- Republicans are doing a fine enough job on their own.

I was on 40 mg of opana 2x a day with oxycodone as breakthrough meds up to 4x a day for about a year or so. I didn't have an issue because I wasn't looking to get high. I wanted to be pain free. No offense but these people would be on Any drug they can find because it's about the high, not pain. I am a product of the 70's and then it was heroin, tuinals, seconals etc. I lost over 20 friends to overdoses in 2 years. These people had an addiction to being high and the more they did the more they needed. I went to a board certified pain doc and brought pill bottles every visit. So those who go to pill mills want to get high and will seek out any drug that serves that purpose. Don't blame Opana. I got off opana and the oxycodone quite easily after my surgeries under doctor supervision. These medicines are for those in extreme pain and saved me from going crazy from pain. You are only showing the perspective from the drug addict and ignoring the fact that for many people it can be a lifesaver. when you don't have to crawl to the bathroom anymore because a medicine is finally working it is a blessing. So until you walk in their shoes or nine you really don't have the correct understanding of what it's really all about. thank you for reading this

Diane Grillo Opana isn't the problem. The company that makes it is the problem. The doctors they bribed into perscibing large amounts to people that didn't even need to be on it in the first place is the problem.

I normally like this podcast and it's host, but "The Redline" episode is sickening. It's official, the left is so anti-trump, it's now a fau pa right.

I totally love how you can sense the immersion of this reporting from the way the reports somewhat take on elements of the accents of their subjects

I hate that they get you totally hooked.... then just poof, disappear. EVERYTIME, with no warning. It's no to be continued, or we're going on hiatus. Just... amazing reporting, then it's like wondering if Trump's People had them silenced 2 episodes in. WTF
