Have Fun, Enjoy My Viagra!

The Rush Limbaugh story is a sordid one.

Coming back from the Dominican Republic, a nation known for it's use of trafficking of child sex slaves, to attract rich tourists from around the world, we was found with a prescription bottle of Viagra and other drugs that were not prescribed to him.

He argued that they were prescribed to his doctor for privacy reasons.

We may never know why he took a bottle of Viagra, that was not prescribed to him, to a nation that is well known for prostitution, but we do know that he broke the law.

1. It is illegal to use prescription drugs that are not prescribed to you.
2. It is illegal for a doctor to write a prescription for himself, then give the drugs to someone else.
3. It is illegal to give prescription medication to someone else to consume.

Rush Limbaugh was already on probabtion for drug related crimes. He had spent three years and $600,000 on oxycotin abuse, and helped establish an illegal drug ring to market the stuff. He became partially brain damaged from the overdoses, and this finally manifested as deafness, at which point his addiction was uncovered. All the way he railed against his own kind, arguing that drug addicts were the worst scum of the Earth and should be locked up forever. He got drug rehab and probabtion for crimes that would send most folks to the big house.

At this point, it's clear that the doctors who prescribed these drugs, needs to have their medical licenses revoked. They committed a crime, and their negligent behaviour could put people's lives at risk. Giving people prescription drugs without documentation could lead to complications if that person is hospitalized. With no paperwork describing the treatment and medications a person is receiving, an emergency care physician may make the wrong call, in life and death situations.

Rush Limbaugh might not have the wherewithal to read the label on the bottle, where it clearly spells out that he is breaking Federal Law by taking medication prescribed to someone else, but his doctors knew. They should be arrested, and have their licenses to practice medicine revoked.

Rush Limbaugh is clearly a drug addict that needs serious help, and probably some prison time, but his doctors are clearly the enablers here. They also need to pay for their crimes.

Or is Rush just lying about the prescription. Perhaps he just stole the drugs?

Who knows with that guy?

Thanks for keeping Rush's hypocrisy under the lamp and annoying criminals on the public airwaves!
