Legal prescription pills are killing people in this country regularly.

More people die from legal prescriptions than heroin and cocaine combined.

It’s a trend that isn’t getting any better.

A Los Angeles Times investigation has found that in nearly half of the accidental deaths from prescription drugs in four Southern California counties, the deceased had a doctor’s prescription for at least one drug that caused or contributed to the death.

Reporters identified a total of 3,733 deaths from prescription drugs from 2006 through 2011 in Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura and San Diego counties.

An examination of coroners’ records found that:

In 1,762 of those cases — 47%— drugs for which the deceased had a prescription were the sole cause or a contributing cause of death.

And it may have to do with where the pills are coming from.

The Teensavers Team was in San Diego, California this weekend, at the beautiful Del Mar Fairgrounds talking with parents about the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit.

Thousands of parents streamed through the San Diego Kids Fair and Expo Saturday and Sunday.

America’ Parenting Coach, Tim Chapman spoke before a packed audience, and discussed adolescent behavior and substance abuse issues.

Many parents had questions about their kids, ranging from an uninspired 20 year old adult pot smoker, to a 11 year old who appears to be using narcotics.

Families were given free drug tests, and they were also given a a copy of Chapman’s book on parenting.

Parents asked about the Teensavers accuracy, which drugs are tested, and how the Teensavers program provides more than just a positive or negative result.

The L.A. Times is reporting that the border patrol has found another one of those underground tunnels from Mexico into San Diego.

The tunnel appeared to be complex, spanning 1800 feet, and containing both a ventilation and rail system.   They also seized 20-million tons of marijuana in a connecting warehouse.  The bust was made in Otay Mesa.

There seems to be some Irony that the border patrol would make an enormous bust, hours after Prop 19 was defeated.   Essentially, the marijuana would have been legal had the measure passed.   Of course, no supply of that magnitude would ever be considered legal.   That wouldn’t be the personal stash for the community of Otay Mesa alone.
