If I told 100 average men that I could get them off of their antihypertensive, high cholesterol med, diabetes med and antidepressant if they only would lose 50lbs and exercise daily...99 would tell me to give them the pills. This is what America doesn't want to face. We don't have a drug problem, we have a health problem.

Your reactions are impaired whether you feel like they are or not.

I haven't smoked marijuana in over 15 years, and don't use painkillers...for the record.

I just dislike hypocrites.

And there are damn sure a lot of hypocritical drug users.

Especially those with a prescription.

U.S Teens are 3 times more likely to be prescribed anti-depressants that Europeans teens? You think that is good?

We have a drug problem in the U.S. It has dumbed us down. Is that too hard to admit?

Price of a free society.

And reflects that we have too much disposable income.

How does disposable income = over prescription of antidepressants by physicians?

I suppose places like Monaco have everybody on SSRI's.

I'll be damned if I know what you're on about. My only posts were defending the legitimate use of some drugs in a pain management program for those who truly need it. I never complained about gun owners on, or not on, anything. I don't know where you're seeing anything hypocritical about anything I've posted. Seems to me that you're the one painting with an awfully broad brush.

Not everyone on prescription drugs is impaired or unworthy to defend themselves.

Some are, some aren't, same as dopers or ordinary people with bad marriages, hectic schedules, anger management issues, noisy kids in the backseat, hatred, or fear.
Any of these things might or might not effect one's ability to safely own a firearm, or to drive, or to post angry nonsense on the internet. YMMV.
That's why the 2nd amendment is for everyone.

But a doctor may prescribe a certain medication with a warning not to drive; I'm not sure dope dealers are that conscientious.

And it's pretty hard to get most people to agree that criminals have the right to bear arms while they are fighting to stay out of prison.

I've heard not to drive if taking Viagra as the person is more apt to park at brothels.

The impairment is the interference with the steering wheel.

Bitcoins and shiny bits of metal turn me on and make me happy...just the opposite of depression and suicidal tendencies.
