Dealing with the fallout from people who are addicted to the stuff is going to be a mess of epic proportions. We're not talking about shady characters hiding in in the alleyways at night, either. We're talking about the elderly. Parents.
You are absolutely right about that. I know someone's father who's addicted to it... and can get a prescription to support this addiction, because he has a physical need to take it that may be incurable; the problem is, family members are unable to determine if there really is a need to continue taking it regularly or it's an addiction.
