are you kidding me with this??!!

I'm doing some research for an article on the increased abuse, by teens, of prescription medications. This is one of the articles I was using for my research. If you notice, every article reference to prescription medications or internet pharmacies is also a web link to an ON LINE PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION COMPANY!! Is it just me, or is that a little ironic? Or perhaps just flat out infuriating and irresponsible?

The article's author goes so far as to say that "the availability of prescription drugs is an epidemic that has the potential to far exceed the devastation society is being faced with already, through illegal drug use in the U.S." And yet his article is contributing to the very problem he's complaining about.

If you're feeling so inclined, do me a favor and drop an email to the editor of this website, and point out this little bit of irony. You might also mention that it's the very addiction to commerce which is evident is his article that has made prescription drugs so widely available to young people!

Of course in true irony, in complaining about this topic you inadvertantly said that the website, which you've listed, has the links to the online pharmacy.

I'm just saying.
