RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I wanted to comment in responce to Berthas statement that only alcohol could be used safely in small amounts, other drugs could not. I am an RN and just about everyone I care for gets IV morphine, dilaudid, numorphan or fentanyl, all opiods like heroin. My patients often do get a euphoric sensation while on the drugs. They are being used safely by just about everyone who enters a hospital. These patients do not go on to be addicts or criminals.
What about people with prescriptions for medical marijuana? Often they have issues with chronic pain, spinal injuries or are in treatment for cancer. They do not go on to cause car accidents or become criminals.
These drugs can be and are being used safely by many many people.
