    One would think she would know better being a nurse. Seems lots of people up there will do anything for prescription drugs. I keep telling my doctor I want the bare minimum. And, I put my meds in a locked safe!

    While I will agree with the innocent until proven guilty philosophy, I also know first hand that trust is not always appropriate simply because of a title.
