First off I hate to say anything about this subject because I felt most people know this already but then there is always a exception. The several months I have been on this forum I have found help and given help to others.
Along the way I have made a few good friends who have been members here longer then myself.
Well one of our members was in contact with me for some issues they were going through. Then I received a frantic email for help and suggestions that I did not see for a few days. By using searches of the members name and finding a few news paper articles and the last email it appears that the member gave two norcos to a friend who needed them. I do not know if they had there own script or not but anyways got stopped by the police. Now to save their own but they told the police where they came from. Now it appears from a report I found the police sent the person back to see if they could get a few more.
Our member gave a few more. I do not know how many.
Our member was sent to a grand jury and a charge of trafficking of hydrocodone ( two counts) was sent down.
There has been no contact since then with the member. It looks like it was two pills both times and no sales.
I wont know for sure until probably a much later date..
This is just a warning to do things right as I know most on here do. I was surprised to see in a few post another member talked about getting a families members scripts and using them. This would be a felony for each the user and the donor.
I feel I knew this member good enough to know they thought they were helping a friend in need. The needy friend is out but the member is not.
Keep in mind I have a neighbor that makes some of the meds that are being misused and every pill made can be traced back to the person that made it. Some kind of marker is in the mix so unless your meds come from the same batch and you even just trade the same amount with a friend its possible that it could be traced to see that it is not your prescription
Its getting tough out there and even this small variance that was done hurts us all and makes the whole system we need to use to get our meds harder.
Just a warning be careful and in no way do I condone what happened but jail time seams stiff in this case but the facts may change later. Plus it just makes it harder for us to get what we need.
Be smart and protect your meds even from theft.
