Coach Kika

Having Arnoldo in his own apartment would further isolate him and the caregivers would likely be underpaid plus undersupervised. this would like lead to more abuse and mental anguish due to him being unable to communicate effectively with the world at large. no system is perfect but a group home is far and away a better option.

This is awful. I would understand more if he was a violent offender, if he was a danger but for a drug charge? And he was right, he went to prison, that was his punishment, being sent to a country he hadn't lived in since he was ten is a cruel and unusual punishment that also punishes his family. it's terrible.

This is so depressing. I REALLY hope Amendment 4 passes! The voter suppression is horrible... we don't need Russians to screw with our elections- Republicans are doing a fine enough job on their own.

I was on 40 mg of opana 2x a day with oxycodone as breakthrough meds up to 4x a day for about a year or so. I didn't have an issue because I wasn't looking to get high. I wanted to be pain free. No offense but these people would be on Any drug they can find because it's about the high, not pain. I am a product of the 70's and then it was heroin, tuinals, seconals etc. I lost over 20 friends to overdoses in 2 years. These people had an addiction to being high and the more they did the more they needed. I went to a board certified pain doc and brought pill bottles every visit. So those who go to pill mills want to get high and will seek out any drug that serves that purpose. Don't blame Opana. I got off opana and the oxycodone quite easily after my surgeries under doctor supervision. These medicines are for those in extreme pain and saved me from going crazy from pain. You are only showing the perspective from the drug addict and ignoring the fact that for many people it can be a lifesaver. when you don't have to crawl to the bathroom anymore because a medicine is finally working it is a blessing. So until you walk in their shoes or nine you really don't have the correct understanding of what it's really all about. thank you for reading this

Diane Grillo I totally understand what you are saying, I also understand wanting to distance yourself from those people except that it's undeniable that for a lot of people they also began taking opoids legitimately as well. Joy wasn't chasing a high, neither was the ex marine, neither were many people who are now caught in the vicious cycle of opoid abuse. Then there are the people, who like you, can take those pills for chronic pain for however long they need and then stop when they no longer need them. I think the days of being able to tell who will become opoid dependent and who will end up becoming addicts who abuse pills or end up becoming heroin users are far behind us, seeing this issue as junkies being bad vs the good people was never beneficial but these days it's also ridiculous because joy isn't a bad person, neither was the ex marine. However, in their desperation, many people do bad things to get their fix, and I'm certainly not condoning that behaviour. If you listen to the next story when they find Joy again and she tells her story I think it shows just how quickly someone who has no problems and has "everything", who has never had issues in the past, can fall from grace. I'm really glad this didn't happen to you, I know that these pills are needed for people in chronic pain, I guess I also think that there needs more systems in place to catch people before they fall so far that they lose everything.

Diane Grillo Opana isn't the problem. The company that makes it is the problem. The doctors they bribed into perscibing large amounts to people that didn't even need to be on it in the first place is the problem.

I normally like this podcast and it's host, but "The Redline" episode is sickening. It's official, the left is so anti-trump, it's now a fau pa right.

I totally love how you can sense the immersion of this reporting from the way the reports somewhat take on elements of the accents of their subjects

I hate that they get you totally hooked.... then just poof, disappear. EVERYTIME, with no warning. It's no to be continued, or we're going on hiatus. Just... amazing reporting, then it's like wondering if Trump's People had them silenced 2 episodes in. WTF
