this is crazy- i was researching new meds bc my doc might want to switch me off of oxycodone to morphone or dilaudid...anyway i came across some website where people were openly selling pain meds online!!!  Unreal!  are they stupid or just ignorant?  that's a federal offense and they're doing it openly online!  wow!  i was shocked.  won't be visiting that one again!!!!  that's the kind of stuff that makes it so tough for those of us legitimately in pain and in need of pain meds!  wow!

Yes it is crazy...and I hope they get caught. That's what the Feds should be doing is cracking these online
scams and cons....and arrest these people...anysa...it does get me mad as heck to hear about this, My
daughter was doing a paper on China one time and I had to do the google search for her and
you should have seen all the **** sites that came up, makes a parent mad, very mad...

yeah this was a whole community site just like this one- only it dealt entirely with selling and uying meds.
my jaw literally almost hit the floor. they're setting meetings, talking about dr. feelgoods etc...
if i was a cop i'd be trolling that all day long.
i don't understand how these people are not all in jail.

i saw some ads recently in our local area Craigs List, where people were openly wanting to buy pain meds from people that no longer needed them. Either they are totally ignorant of laws, or else its the police try to entrap people with an online "sting" operation. I can't believe anyone would ever contact these "buyers".

There was an ad on Craigslist for a job. I think three people went. The guy that posted the ad shot them all. One lived. I think that they caught the guy. That is scarey!!!

Then there are the websites that make "referrals" to a doctor who is supposedly guaranteeing a prescription for pain meds.
Unfortunately, there are people who will visit those sites, both legit cp patients and those who aren't, rather than follow the standards of care to get meds. It is not only dangerous, but illegal and eventually they will get caught.
I read on another site where someone who had surgery was using one of these type of sites, rather than have to get a two week prescription from her surgeon, she chooses to use this type of "service" because the "doctor" there will give her prescriptions in far larger quantities. To me, that is not pain management but addiction management.
It's sad and it makes it so much more difficult for the rest of us, who do follow the rules.
