Legal Drug Pharmacies with Pill Mill Behaviors Must Be AccountableMarianne Skolek Salem-News.com Investigative Reporter
Congressman Tom Marino (PA) and Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (TN) "prescribe" Walgreens be unaccountable for errors in loss of lives. Why?
(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) -An organization named Stoppnow out of Florida has been instrumental in closing pill mills setting up in storefront buildings throughout their state. Here is their website http://stoppnow.com/.Read Full Article
Representatives from Stoppnow attended the Fed Up Rally in Washington, DC last month and scheduled a meeting with Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (TN) to discuss a bill co-sponsored by the congresswoman -- HR 4709. The bill sparked my interest because it ties the hands of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) if a pharmacy makes a serious mistake with an opioid prescription.

Rally for Immediate Coordinated Federal Response to the Prescription Opioid/Heroin CrisisMarianne Skolek Salem-News.com Investigative Reporter
They will not ignore you if they know you are not going away.
(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) -On September 27 and 28 I will be speaking at the FED UP Rally in Washington, DC calling attention to the national health epidemic - prescription opioids/heroin and the mounting death toll. Read Full Article0
It is anticipated there will be a huge outpouring of families from all over the country who are "fed up" with the FDA picking the pockets of pharma by approving more and more opioids as a pay to play. For the past 12 years I have been exposing the prescription opioid/heroin Holocaust fueled by profiteers without consideration of the loss of life. My involvement in this journey for justice was as a result of the death of my daughter, Jill in 2002 to prescribed OxyContin.
