Nanny State: Senator With Too Much Free Time Now Warning About Prescription Drugs

Posted by on Jan 09, 2012 at 9:27 am

To be honest, we all might need a prescription for this stuff just to get through his tedious Sunday press conferences.

What do Four Loko, bath salts, arsenic, “inhalable caffeine,” OnStar, and John McCain all have in common? They’re all things Sen. Chuck Schumer would love to ban! Now we have something new to add to that illustrious list: Zohydro, a “super painkiller” that is ten times more powerful than Vicodin.

One manufacturer is reportedly on the verge of asking the FDA to approve Zohydro, claiming it’s “safer and more convenient” for treatment of chronic pain. A single extended-release capsule of the drug will contain up to 10 times the amount of hydrocodone as the lowest-dose Vicodin pill.

“It’s tremendously concerning that at the same time policy makers and law enforcement professionals are waging a war on the growing prescription drug crisis, new and more powerful super drugs could well be on their way,” Schumer said during a news conference in Manhattan today.

    Really? News to me the fed has been waging a war on legal drugs but I guess they got to be at war with someone over something all the time now. Sheesh!

    I suffer from chronic pain. Don’t lump me in w/junkies, shooting the Heroin that flows freely over the boarder this putz refuses to protect!
    Who is the “anti-science” party now?

    Liberals are always for a person’s right to choose as long as that choice is the choice liberals want made. If it isn’t the liberal approved choice,then you have no right to choose. Daddy Government knows what’s best for you even if you must live in terrible pain so a liberal like Schumer can feel good about himself…and possibly pick up a few votes from stupid people along the way.

    When will people learn that liberals are the exact opposite of everything they claim to be? How many more oppressive laws, power grabs, and bans must we see from them for people to come to the understanding of the totalitarian nature of those who have set themselves up as our Masters instead of being our Servants?

    Many years ago, I happened to be walking on a quiet Brooklyn side street and, lo and behold, Chuckles the clown Schumer approached all by himself from the opposite direction.

    I have to confess, it took all my self-control to not spit at him.
