From Drug Abuse Warning Network Emergency Room Data. Based on drug mentions during emergency room visits in 2005.

If anyone wanted to get drugs they would just go to there local drug dealer but nowaday's  the best option is just to go to the doctors and they will give you powerful drugs some a lot worser than those on the street. One of the most abused prescription drugs in the united kingdom comes from the doctors and is named diazepam (valium) or painkiller based medications such as co-codamol. A lot of people abuse these drugs because of the strong euphoric effect they can sometimes give. The list above represents a few of the prescribed drugs you can get off your doctor and some of these are worser than street drugs. I am not condoning any street drugs but what i am actually saying is that the government are giving all these laws out about different drugs but they are basically letting society get powerful drugs from there doctors which can be devastatingly abused. Dont get me wrong some people need these medications but there is a percentage out there that abuse this. These prescription drugs when mixed with alcahol have a high overdose potential. Alot of prescription drugs are being illegaly sold as street drugs go down in quality and strengh and you can get them off the internet nowadays also. When will the systematic abuse of prescriptions stop when most off britain is hooked. Are we deliberatly getting drugs handed over too us by the government as some sort of big plan to get britain hooked to make more tax from drug clinics. No.. were not everyone has there own mind and if you think you might get hooked to script medecine dont do them because in the long run that sought after high will turn into liver disease or heart disease you name it. I think this issue is a ticking time bomb waiting to go off. I have not met one person who has not had a  strong script drug handed to them off their doc. What will be the nickname of britain soon Prescript alley. Some people who will read this hub will probably have had some kind strong med off their doctor and know that it is very hard to wean off these drugs once you have started them. Medication does come with warnings but come on who takes these warning to heed....yes thats what i thought.
