No more Osprey ride for me

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Federal agents raided a Boeing plant that makes military helicopters in suburban Philadelphia on Thursday and charged more than three dozen people with distributing or trying to get prescription drugs, among them powerful painkillers.

The arrests were made by the FBI and the Drug Enforcement Administration at the 5,400-employee plant in Ridley Park, where workers build aircraft including the H-47 Chinook helicopter and the V-22 Osprey. The plant, part of Boeing's Defense, Space and Security unit, is also the headquarters for its Rotorcraft division.

It did not appear to be an organized drug ring, but rather a "nebulous" series of independent actors, authorities said.

"These sales placed the individual abusers, as well as society at large, at risk," said DEA agent Vito S. Guarino.

The show ain't over yet. From what I hear the total will be over 70 people, that was the day work crew they popped today, still have 3-11 and 11-7 shifts that they picked up too. Looks like 70 or so jobs will be opening up. Fucking idiots.

They did that so they would have a great heartstring story to trot out about the damage to the community should "x" contract get cancelled.

I worked at a non-union plant building tanker trucks.

They had to suspend the drug testing program because they kept having to fire all their workers.

Welders & mechanics smoke a lot of dope, apparently.

I was fired because a bible-thumping foreman flipped out when he saw my tattoos as I was pulling up my socks.

No no, it's perfectly safe as long as a doctor fills out that little piece of paper and you take it to a pharmacy. But if you don't get that piece of magic paper...

No, it isn't perfectly safe. It never is even with a doctor looking at it. However, your chances of it working as it is intended are much higher when you have a medical specialist evaluate things.

Your average person may not understand dosage etc, or how all of the systems interact and as a result make things way worse.

But whatever.

It's the guy on fire from the album cover of Bad Religion's "Suffer".

Covers most of my right lateral calf.

He yelled at me, "You're going to hell!"

I told him to save me a seat, which made a bunch of people laugh, and pissed him off even more.

That friday I was laid off.

What was wrong with the parts they made? Seriously. Responsible use of whatever they want doesn't seem to hurt anyone, and these people build military helos. Unless aircraft are dropping out of the sky it looks like responsible use is actually proven to not cause screwups here.

You do have that right, as long as you have a prescription, or you are intoxicated on a legal or not yet illegal non-prescription drug.

A true conoisseur wouldn't use vicodin since it has APAP in it

I've never understood the allure of abusing vicodin. It's mostly tylenol, and doesn't do squat to me aside from kill headaches.

Self-medicating for a reason does not bother me, but the recreational use is just retarded.

Prescription meds . . . many people take them illegally because they are dependent, so yes I would make the assumption that they are using while at work.
