10 arrested in alleged drug ring

“Drug Ring”? Really? People, even addicts (where the term “people” is often loosely applied) do not forge prescriptions as the basis for a “drug ring”. These folks are addicts. That’s a-d-d-i-c-t-s, in case the spell-check software at the Salt Lake Tribune doesn’t recognize the word; it probably has never been typed on their computers.

The sooner members of the media, and “society” as a whole, realize that this painkiller epidemic is an addiction problem, not a crime problem, the better the chance we have of actually making a difference.

Oh yeah, the SLT article ends with the statement “Police say the group apparently wanted the drugs for personal use, not for sale to others.” Ooh, some drug ring.
