Ezell Harris, Tea Party Candidate, Arrested On Drug Charges

Huffington Post

Ezell Harris, a Florida conservative who launched his campaign for Orlando City Council at a Tea Party rally, has been arrested on drug trafficking charges.

Jail records show he is being held on four counts: trafficking in hydrocodone, dispensing illegal drugs without a license, unlawful use of a two-way radio, and possession of drug paraphernalia.


Details of the case were not immediately available from the Orlando Police Department, though investigators believe he was selling Lorcet and Vicodin - brand names of hydrocodone -- that had been prescribed to him. According to his website, he served as a military policeman in the U.S. Army for three years in the late 1970s, and was classified as disabled in 1980.

In his campaign platform, Harris said: "Prescription drugs have replaced cocaine and other illicit substances as the leading cause of drug abuse deaths in Florida, a new study says. Despite this, the state has no prescription drug monitoring program, and the authors of the study say Florida must do more to curb the abuse of legal medication ... The report makes it clear that lax oversight is allowing Florida's legal drug abuse problem to grow out of control."

chronic pain narcotic opioids are effective but very dangerous, should be taken with moderation and prescribed by a doctor, medicines like Hydrocodone, lortab, vicodin, norco, percocet, oxycontin, are even more commercial and very helpful to people with diseases such as fibromyalgia, chronic pain, Parkinson's, arthritis, should be restricted and controlled as in findrxonline said that the FDA does not permit free marketing for them.

The doctor gave me lortab long time after suffering from back pain, I did not take importance to this icon in order to feel pain, until no stamina, after many doctor visits and many tests I found chronic fibromyalgia, and after evaluating and conduct a comprehensive review told me that the most appropriate to ease the pain were lortab, vicodin or oxycodone, but I asked my doctor to prescribe me the most effective and less addictive and prescribed Lortab, have already taken this medication 2 years and though it causes some kind of anxiety I control myself properly, I have no problems so addictive, I think if they know their anxiety is effective restraint, this is good because these narcotics findrxonline indicate that opioids can be very dangerous.

We found that there are many legit foreign pharmacies that provide for safe and reliable medications at much lower prices. The idea that only US pharmacies can provide quality medications like vicodin, Hydrocodone, norco, lorcet is obviously shallow. Foreign internet pharmacies will also often offer their patients a free online consultation. It would not be hard for authorities to recommend the use of such pharmacies to patients in need, but instead the DEA insist that the consumers’ safety is at stake when ordering at foreign pharmacies, since the safety can be compromised due to falsification and adulteration of the pharmaceutical products available in other countries is indicated findrxonline in article on pharmacies online.
