Pain Killers, Black, Brown, White America and Illegal Drug Activities

So when will criminal laws on the Federal and State level reflect that Pain Killers prescribed by the nations well fed doctorare now enemy number one in that other war, The War On Drugs?

Or are we to accept the proposition that the war on drugs as all proscriptions and social controls are nothing more than thinly veiled gambits to destabilize Black and Brown America particularly Black and Brown Men because what we see with pain killers medication is it is illegal activity indulged primarily by suburban White America and rural White America.. We don't see monologues in the various political chambers across the land, demanding the sort of Draconian Punishment illegal drug activities practiced by Black and Brown America experiences.  What we do see is the sophistry bias of law, order and justice and it's logic is stacked when the violator is the suburban neighbor or the hunting rifle toting, dysfunctioning family, religious opportunist NASCAR rural America.

you are wrong my friend. actually if you even get caught with so much as one pill in the state of va. if its not in a bottle that is prescribed to you,you face the same class of a person who is carry cocaine or heroin, so i dont know where you got your information but you could not be more wrong. take it from someone such as i who have been charged with it. just because your white doesnt mean your getting away with anything.

Sister, you speak from experience in your response to my pain killers post in your 12/11/16 comments. My point, however, there hasn't been political demonization of those caught with pills, who primarily are white as there was when the war on drugs was all about crack cocaine and it's black and brown subjective-objectives.
