Banning of Percocet and Vicodin, and limiting Tylenol dosage??!!!!!!!

Maybe banning people who don't take these meds as prescribed, instead of banning the meds themselves might be some help. They can maintain "no-fly lists" why can't they maintain "no narcotic lists" at pharmacies instead of making the rest of us suffer? I take Tylenol Arthritis, 2 every 8 hours (which I don't even take that much, normally only twice a day). That would allow for one percocet, to not go over the recommended daily dose of acetaminophen. If it's a day where I do need to take the percocet, I just don't take my second dose of Tylenol Arthritis (which I usually take after work), or lessen the dose. Regardless, on any given day, I still don't reach the 4000 mg recommended max dose of acetaminophen. Common sense isn't so common I guess... Maybe ALL doctors should just administer drug tests, to weed out the abusers. I wouldn't mind. If this goes through, tha abusers and addicts are just going to find something else to replace this, then what?
