Findings/Key points

"I have more structure. There isn’t much reliability in trying to survive off street dope. It’s a lot easier to have a prescription, come in when I want, and I know it’s safe. Well, not safe. But safer. The issue is the quality of what I’m getting on the street. You never know what they put in it. There’s lots of benzos in the fentanyl these days. People are blacking out and stuff like that. Here, I know exactly how much I’m getting and I know it’s made by a pharmacy, not by someone I don’t know."
