The Prescription Addiction Radio Show

"The Prescription Addiction Radio Show - Breaking the Silence" has long focused on the growing misuse of prescription drugs and accused the drug companies, medical professionals, elected officials, public officials and regulatory boards of remaining silent on the growing epidemic of prescription drugs that has infected every community and street in our country. According to the State of Florida Medical Examiners Commission, the reported reality has become that about 70% of the drug related deaths in the State presently include a prescription drug.

The phrase "War on Drugs" was first used by President Nixon in 1969 and has come to symbolize the continuing challenge of stopping the influx of illegal drugs both being produced in our country and imported into our country. Judge Gray has been an outspoken critic of the method in which the War on Drugs has been waged. As a Judge, he has seen the damage and destruction drugs have done to individuals and families. As an author, he has both documented the damage and offered solutions.

Radio host Larry G and Novus Director Steve Hayes are not proponents for the legalization and decriminalization of drugs to solve the growing problem of drug misuse. According to Larry G, a registered pharmacist for over 30 years, the growing epidemic of legal narcotic prescription drugs is a clear indication that our country's perspective on drugs continues to fall short. He also believes that the possible addiction to marijuana and negative outcomes from marijuana continue to be downplayed by the proponents of "medical legalization". The radio show questions the logic of groups such as NORML, Drug Policy Alliance and Marijuana Policy Project.

Judge James P. Gray, Larry Golbom and Steve Hayes understand that dialog and discussion will bring about the realization that opponents and proponents for revising the drug policies in this country are closer together than most realize and, thus, closer to solutions. If you are interested in understanding not only the extent of the problem but what we each can do about the problem, then this is a show that you and your friends won't want to miss.
