I comletely understand your point and your response below.
I too am wanting to do the same, however, I don't think this is the way to go about it. I know, it kills me too that I have a full prescrition of a medication that doesn't work for me but might for someone else who can't afford it or doesn't have the insurance.
The problem is, whether it be 2 pills or 50, it is still illegal. And what could happen is that eventually this board could become a "free drug house" in the eyes of authorities. I mean, first it may be here I have 2 extra pills of this, then another says I've got 20 of this and so on. I'm afraid they'd shut this site down real quick. Plus, it could attrack people out just looking for free types of pain killers. Hope you understand where I'm coming from.
I'm with you as far as something needs to be done. But, we need to protect this site and OUCH at the same time. I've been looking around for rememidies to this, and have a few ideas, but still need more research. Could use some help.
It's a very sincere offer, but I think if you look at the overall situations that could arise, a simple "Screw them" is not in our best interest at this time. We might very well need their help down the line to achieve such a goal?
Great intention I agree, sadly I don't think we can do it like that here.
