    Moral of the story...never arrest someone on your honeymoon.
    Why are you on your honeymoon in the jurisdiction in which you work?

    Yes and no, some of the deaths from overdoses of legally perscribed drugs may be due to errors on the part of the person, IE the perscribed dose interacts with something else and that causes it to be an overdose.

    When my ma had terminal cancer they put her on fentanyl patches, I read up on them and found that there have been some OD's from them because something caused a different than intended absorption rate of the drug in them.

    Victims of a "victimless" crime? (Maybe the cause of death should be reclassified as: Natural Causes.)

    Is it mixed or taken straight, as-is?
    Well you were in PAIN, so the meds did something different, if you had taken more than you might have gotten a "buzz" from it.

    Speaking from experience as a alcoholic and drug addict (in recovery since 11/12/91) I can say that some opiates gave me an extreme high ONE time, after that they only acted as depressants. I have heard people say they chased that magic seldom achieved euphoric high for the rest of their active addiction.

    The time release oxy stuff the addicts BITE the pills to release it all at once, thus getting a much more concentrated dose.

    Sorry to hear about your daughter ISPY4U. Despite the bad economy I hope people will attempt providing some form of support to others who may seem overwhelmed with stress in these times. Down here in Florida instead of drugs you have men who continue to execute themselves and their families. Boy I wish they would go seek help and stop killing their wives and children.
