Legal Drug Pharmacies with Pill Mill Behaviors Must Be Accountable

Congressman Tom Marino (PA) and Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (TN) "prescribe" Walgreens be unaccountable for errors in loss of lives. Why?

(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) - STOPP 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/.

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.

EBOLA! EBOLA! EBOLA!

Exclusive interview with Dr. Phil Leveque, Forensic Toxicologist and Pharmacologist, on the Ebola Epidemic.

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Ebola epidemic It spreads very easily. An infected person doesn't need to touch you, or have you touch them; nor sneeze on you, or have sex with you. It’s their aura, the infected person’s atmosphere around them carries the moisture-born Ebola virus, their own contaminated body fluids. Yes, their sweat evaporating into the air around them is infected, and contagious.

Because of the virulence of this stuff, it doesn't act like measles or small pox or anything like that, something far, far worse. You can’t say that this is from person-to-person contact; it’s just not possible that it can be that way.

Police Chief Joseph McNamara, Who Fought to End the Drug War, Dies at 79

Retired San Jose Police Chief Leaves Behind a Remarkable Legacy of Public Service and Activism

(MONTEREY, Calif.) - Joe McNamara McNamara spoke out publicly against the drug war long before the issue had come to the political forefront. He was a speaker and advisory board member for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), a group of law enforcement officials opposed to the war on drugs.

Rally for Immediate Coordinated Federal Response to the Prescription Opioid/Heroin Crisis

They will not ignore you if they know you are not going away.

(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) - undertreatment of pain 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.

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.
