  1. I guess there is no law enforcement on the rez!………There can’t be if there’s that many addicts!  I thought that was part of what us tax payers paid for!   
            Oxy can sell from $ 50.00 – $ 300.00 a pill!……Glad to  see the welfare makes  this affordable.
          
           You can die from two types of withdrawls….. Thats Alcohol and Benzopimines…..Not crack,not coke,not heroin,not meth, ……..Just those two!… So NO there is not a health crisis at hand here.    Just gonna be some ornery natives for awhile,They’ll propabably find something else to take the place of it! God knows they got the resources to buy what they need!
                    Lots of talk about increase of needle sharing going on! ….Not to worry most of them shoot up the oxys anyway thats what all the fuss is about. Not being able to get off the way they’re used too! 
             Lot of talk about building treatment centers on the reserves!  Great idea!…..Lets send them all ten million dollars…..So they can open a Fly by night treatment center and a state of the art bingo hall!………….If I sound fed up It’s just you!!!!
