once again the media is printing anti pain med stories. a football player for a college was found dead last week and was tested. what a surprise, 5 different pain meds were found in his body, hydromorphone, morphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, and oxymorphone. this kid had all five in his blood at the same time. what was sad is that he was supposed to be taking one med for pain from a car accident. his mom said, he was not the type of son who would abuse pain meds. the article was not judgemental per se but printing this story was judgemental in its own right. once again, the media will jump on any story that has to do with someone dying from pain meds, ie remember jeff conway of taxi? he died from pneumonia which was precipitated by an overdose of pain meds. for some reason, the media loves this, people dying form pain meds. no stories about car wrecks due to alcohol abuse, or people dying form lung cancer due to cigarettes, just pain meds. it will never stop i am afraid and this will give the powers to be more ammunition for their anti narcotic, pain med crusade.
