PLEASE sign our petition to ban Oxycontin!!

by Kim

Hi... My husband passed away from an accidental overdose of oxycontin, xanax and alcohol. There is a website banoxycontin.com and there is a petition on the website to ban this drug. It has been up for 4 years and only has 12,500 signatures. I was wondering if you could help spread the word about this petition.

Any support would be deeply appreciated!!

What an obviously great idea!
by: Debbie WIcker

Hi Kim,

I've posted your request on the our website and think it's a fantastic idea. Because Oxcontin is an opiate it has caused many people to become addicted and suffer the same fate as your husband.

I'm so very sorry you've lost your husband and I hope that banning Oxcontin can become a reality in this country.


Debbie

Thanks!

Thank you so much for your kind words and support. Maybe if we spread the word about this petition, more people will sign it.

I thought through websites like yours, Facebook etc...maybe we could make a small difference.

STOP THIS DRUG NOW

Please, anything to get this drug off the street. It is destroying the lives and families of the 150 people a day dying from its over prescribed use.

We used to be proud Americans but now we are a bunch of pussies who can't take any form of pain and because of it we are a nation of addicts. Curse the doctors who are greedily getting rich over our addiction. Who needs terrorists outside the country when we are being destroyed within.
