  • Cross Bow says:

    we as parent have the right to say no to Prescription Drugs for our kids. Its our fault if we allow them to take these killers. not doing any? research on drugs before we put kids on them makes us dumb down and insane. 90% of the mass killers were on these drugs.doctors look at us as income . check out gereration rx on netflix. ps 99 % dont require any drugs, we make them sick by allowing doctors to put our kids on these drugs. wake up!!!!

  • ThaGodWeCreate says:

    yes i agreee…fuck tha gov! but regardless of race,nationality, religion or whatever…we need to unite. They keep thier power by dividing tha nation into groups and then providing enough fuel to keep tha fire burning…its time we see past our differences and realize? that only together can we all overturn this curruption and greed..but most people are disillusioned and will fight to tha death to keep tha status quo…cuz thats all they know. break tha chains that bind u and live free

  • tampabayismyhome says:

    Dude i am a white person i was just saying thats why drug a illegal because of white rich dudes? who thought the chines would fuck white girls in the opium dens. dude i have blond hair and blues eyes i am proud of who i am to. but i am nothing like the 1% psychopaths that destroyed this country with there Prohibition on drugs,live and let live. and fuck the govt.

  • ThaGodWeCreate says:

    white power!! lol im proud? to be what i am…but i dont judge people on things they cant help

  • tampabayismyhome says:

    im a white man to.?

  • ThaGodWeCreate says:

    yes sir…im a white man but it is true that almost all drug laws were created so white men could keep thier power…or to keep blacks/browns down…god forbid any darkies get money.laws? against cocaine were written specifically to keep white women from black men. our whole system is racist and biased and hypocritical but tha worst thing is…its all for PROFIT.Countless human lives and much human suffering all so tha very rich can keep getting richer.our only weapon is tha truth, so spread it

  • tampabayismyhome says:

    I wish the govt would let us make are own decisions on what we put in are bodies. in the 1900s you could by HEROIN from sears, they would send you a needle and a mouth supply. but scared white men thought men from china would fuck there white woman in the opium dens, so of course they made it illegal. I don’t even do drugs, but it should be left up to the person, not the govt. you are 100% right on how they sell it to you then lock you up. it’s a? fucked up country we live in.

  • ThaGodWeCreate says:

    its not jus tha cops…its tha whole system..its built on? drug money…they sell u tha drugs then lock u up for using them…fucked up society. stay strong keep ur head up

  • appleman1324 says:

    this is true. look, everybody, drugs are not a legal issue, forget about punishing users, its the personal issue of being socially deprived.

    happened to? me with painkillers and adderall i did with a friend.

    now i see this prescription/pill abuse all over the mainline industry. Music constantly promoting it, forget “weed” or “cocaine” in music, Pills/E/Adderall/Oxycontin are heavy in all genres of music.

    The Elite corp/the War Machine wants our generation to be addicted to THEIR DRUGS

  • joeystreetbike says:

    may god help all people suffering? from addiction treat it do not jail them I suffered from this shit god bless you all

  • vabyss78 says:

    Locking up addicts instead of treating their conditions…FOR PROFIT. What the fuck are people proud of this greed-driven cesspool of filth for?

    America is the great? evil in this world.

  • Harry Fleckenstein says:

    i? found the music from Myspace some amazing guy from Greece.

  • tampabayismyhome says:

    Get caught with one oxy pill, go to jail for 5 years. do you see the problem here? treat it as a health problem. ‘Law Enforcement Against Prohibition’ even thinks this is the way. addiction can happen to anyone at any time and your love ones too. all it? takes is a hospital visit and a prescription for pain killers. stop locking people up for being sick with addiction. ASS-HOLE cops.
