We’ve all heard plenty about Missouri’s passing a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program. Our State is the only one left that hasn’t fallen for more big brother involvement in our prescription drugs. So far, this bill has only passed the House and still has to clear the Senate.
The selling point behind it is that it will stop people from having easy access to prescription drugs because a database will send off alarms if someone gets too many prescriptions from too many different doctors.
Surprise! The 49 states that already have prescription drug monitoring still have drug abuse!
In my County, people can’t buy pseudoephedrine without a prescription from a doctor because government is trying to solve a problem far bigger than its capacity.
Unless the government is forcing us to take drugs, the government is incapable of correcting the problem. This is a family issue and needs to be dealt with in the jurisdiction of the family.
The family is the original prescription drug monitoring program. The family members are closest to the drug abuser and are the only ones who see and know what’s happening and can intervene when there is a problem.
Families need to stop asking their governments to fix their problems.
On our show this week, we talk with Ellen Miller, author of a new book, “Lord, Have Mercy!” She shares with us her own struggles with parenting and includes a happy story about her son who was on meth for 3 1/2 years. It will inspire you!
Do you think the government should have a database that keeps track of what drugs we’re taking?

2.) Let’s send the legislators a message! We elected them to uphold their constitutional duties. The last time I checked, there was no mention about the responsibility of government to provide oversight on what kinds of prescriptions we are taking.
3.) I am speaking this week in Sikeston, Missouri. Pray that the Lord will bless our message and the listeners who hear it. It’s going to take a great effort to save our Country, but we can do it!
