    I have a bad injury at the moment and have been given several strong prescription drugs.

    I would kill for some THC right now!

    I assume they weren't really informed on the subject.

    I think you should also have to do some type of counselling. It needs to be closely watched who is getting access to it. I may not have a huge wealth of knowledge on the subject but know plenty of people addicted through recreational use.

    But they don't give you counselling before giving you just as (and in my view more) addictive prescription drugs, so why?

    I don't agree with this unless the same will be applied to all addictive drugs currently available (so things like panadeine forte, codeine linctus, Valium, tramal, endone, OxyContin, methadone, ketamine, nurofen plus, mersyndol etc)

    I know a lot more people who have become hooked on endone and things like that over pot. So if you need counselling for one it would need to apply to others too.

    Agree. If there's counselling for pot there should be counselling for stronger drugs. I'm in Counselling for addiction to prescription drugs.

    The one that saddens me is Benzos. How easily is Valium and Xanax handed out?!? The withdrawals are SO so so so bad and they can actually kill you but the doctors don't mention that. They can last months or more too. They are greatly underestimated.

    Also. Alot of people don't realise that oxycodone (endone, OxyContin, oxynorm etc) is stronger than morphine and similar to heroin.

    ETA I want to make it clear that I would never ever ever blame the doctors for my addictions, I'm quite capable of stuffing up my life on my own. I always read up on medication etx for myself. I just believe they shouldn't be handed out like lollies.

    I was given 50 Valium tablets even though I was told to only take them for a few nights!

    Yeah you shouldn't take them for any longer than that straight. They should have given you a smaller bottle.
