Maine is my home state, I relocated to Florida in September 2009 and depend on the SJ to keep updated on what is going on in my home state. :)
This is what needs to be front page of every newspaper across America! I moved away from Maine a few years ago and was there this past spring. I was appalled with the cuts this so called governor has made! Danny, you should run for election!!!!
..seems to me you have to be a high honors math major to begin to understand the new plan...maybe I'm wrong (I stopped reading half-way through) but if you are one that receives a discount for 'mass commuting' and have a sick day or two...you could end up paying up top 50% more? I thought these were pre-paid cards? IDK....anyway good luck Maine F&F...
.so sad, I pray people really start educating and get educated. I know there are situations that these drugs do some good to people that really need them and work closely with their doctors, but there has to be a better way of monitoring these drugs. Just because you have a broken or twisted ankle doesn't mean you need opiates for relief...many people get introduced to these medications in an innocent enough way, then without realizing it become physically dependent. I personally now many people, and unfortunately was one of them. These are not 'street people', they are soccer moms, teachers, business people...anyone who has ever had a painful medical situation is as risk for addiction..Please, please pay attention to your doctors orders...and when possible do not use...My prayers go out to all who have been affected by this, 'users' and their friends and family.
