WOW! I Such negative responses to Drug untervention and Eduacation!
I came here to "CafeMom", because I thought it would be a good place to get out the word about OTC medications that are addictive and dangerous. Instead some of you got some way way off ideas that I had something against the stores or pharmacies. It even went as far as some ladies telling me that I need to do something constructive with my life! lol. I am sorry but since my son's death last year from an overdose of OTC medications, I can not see a more constructive way to help other kids and parents then eduacating them on this growing epidemic and yes also by trying to slow down the abuse by getting the State to restrict the sale of medications that have Dextromethorphan in it. I am not naive enough to think that even all of that will stop this kind of abuse but it will make people aware of how dangerous this medication can be. I also think that it will slow down this epidemic. And as far as the notion that they will just move onto something else uh of course they will and when that happens I pray to God that the Mother of that child has the same set of morals and strong will as I have. I hope I gave the correct impression this time, because I have no complaints or vendetta's with any store or there employee's! So please if you are going to pose an opposite opinion please stay on topic this is about getting out OTC drug abuse awareness and more stringent buying restrictions! The topic is not my son! I will not take kindly to anyone judging my dead son.
