    STREET DRUGS, ALCOHOL AND OXYCONTIN.
    O’Reilly believes if drug dealers sell drugs to a drug addict and he overdoses and die the drug dealer should go to prison. The drug dealer does whatever he has to do to survive since there no other jobs for him. The liquor store owner sells alcohol and the doctor pushes Oxycontin and get a pay off by the pharmaceuticals. Drunk drivers kills. Oxycontin kills. Rush's drug of choice. So should the liquor store and doctor who sold and wrote the prescription go to prison if the drunk driver and the Oxycontin user kills someone or dies? Legal drugs and drunk drivers kill more people than illegal drugs.

    If liquor and oxycontin are illegal substances sold illegally, yes they should be prosecuted.

    The drug dealer has no choice but to sell drugs in order to survive. Right? Is this a correct statement?

    The armed robber has no choice but to commit armed robberies to survive. A prostitute with AIDS might have no choice but to spread disease in order to survive. There is no choice but to commit criminal acts. None. All other avenues are closed.

    Then they are predators and like any other predator should be put down. The bear or mountain lion might eat your children because he or she is just trying to survive. Once they do, they are hunted down and shot.

    OxyContin is a chemical cousin of heroin...

    How OxyContin Became Widely Abused Drug
    May 16, 2016 - The drugmaker Purdue Pharma launched OxyContin two decades ago with a bold marketing claim: One dose relieves pain for 12 hours, more than twice as long as generic medications.

    Doctors are people held in esteem in our community and hold a duty of care above and beyond a liquor store owner or the guy you bummed a cigarette from. This thread is stupid.
