The following comments were generated from an editorial by FOX6 WBRC-TV General Manager Lou Kirchen, which first aired on Tuesday, March 18, 2014.
I was responding to the editorial you did on Tuesday concerning pills side by side or something like that and telling the difference. I nursed 28 years and I did a lot of drug and alcohol rehab along with emergency room care. Most of the patients who come in are NOT, are NOT coming in from clouding their medicine up or getting them confused. Now you've got drug overdoses of younger people who deliberately misused some kind of narcotic. But as a whole, I don't think it's right to say a lot or most of the or even a lot of the cases, because it's just not true.
