Default Zohydro

Drug companies are working to develop a pure, more powerful version of the nation's second most-abused medicine, which has addiction experts worried that it could spur a new wave of abuse.

Opiate addiction is becoming more prevalent in the younger society. "OC" or oxycontin was introduced in 1995. This has become an epidemic since its distrubution. It is now the leading abused drug in the US. This new zohydro is said to be 10 times more potent than vicodin. The pill will be time released to help prevent addiction.... but addicts will get around that and just crush it for a more instant effect.

This is a scary situation with the sudden boom of opiate dependency among teens since the introduction of OC. I have a son and this is a real concern for me. Just thought i would get this information out there to yall.
