Has anyone ever PMed you requesting to purchase your controlled meds?

I received a message from a newbie (won't name names and promised not to report them so don't ask me too, I won't...) asking if I would be willing to sell them any meds because their doctor wouldn't prescribe them. I responded tactfully stating that this seemed awfully dangerous as either one of us could be a cop. I sympathize with those who can't receive treatment, but seriously, WTF?

Has this ever happened to anyone else? It has happened to me twice on these boards. Do I come off as a drug dealer? I wanted to know where he was at because one individual had wanted to buy my Adderall because he lived in London and they don't have it there. This makes me uncomfortable, especially because I myself have a past history of drug-abuse/drug-seeking pre-treatment.

Re: Has anyone ever PMed you requesting to purchase your controlled meds?

Never happened to me. You should just report them, since it is illegal and is not welcome on this forum.

Re: Has anyone ever PMed you requesting to purchase your controlled meds?

Nate is right, it's against the rules to sell or buy meds from other members here. It's never happened to me, and I would not agreed to refrain from using the report button.

Re: Has anyone ever PMed you requesting to purchase your controlled meds?

Please be aware that soliciting prescription medications through this forum is strictly prohibited, whether in posts or private messages.

We do ask that you forward any messages of this nature to a moderator. Such activities are harmful, both to the forum, and to the acceptance of the legitimate use of medication for treatment of ADHD.

Re: Has anyone ever PMed you requesting to purchase your controlled meds?

Completely understand what you guys are saying but my background makes me very hesitant to report this as I can sympathize, regardless of the fact that it is obviously wrong.

I already deleted the messages anyway and don't even remeber the user's name. However, anyone reading this should know in the future that I will report anyone who solicits me. It is illegal and dangerous. See a doctor.

Re: Has anyone ever PMed you requesting to purchase your controlled meds?

No, but I did get a weird sexual pm earlier this week. It took me off guard and I deleted it and then realized I didn't have a name or message so I could report it.

This week or last, there was a thread posted by a newbie here asking where to buy a big supply of Adderall, I think it was.

Selling it is illegal. Even if it wasn't I wouldn't because I NEED MINE!!!!! I'm paranoid about accidentally dropping a capsule down the drain and having to do without for a day!

Yeah, I got this message too, I think from the same UK-based user. Already deleted it, wish I'd reported it.

yes, this has happened to me. i didn't even answer and immediately found a mod who was online and asked them what to do. i waited a little bit, got no response so i tried a different mod that was online, and was told to forward the message, and that it would be taken care of.

it's completely illegal, and has no place in a support forum.

Re: Has anyone ever PMed you requesting to purchase your controlled meds?

Well, I got another message from him asking for a "small sample" because he is in the Uk. I asked what good a small sample would do if he could not get any more in the future. I didn't delete his message. I'm not going to tattle but it is in my pm box.

Re: Has anyone ever PMed you requesting to purchase your controlled meds?

Legal issues aside if you're not bothered by the PM then I guess its no big deal. The only thing that gets me going on my soapbox is that people who! Use these drugs without an RX are the people who make those of us who need them look bad.

Re: Has anyone ever PMed you requesting to purchase your controlled meds?

Actually it IS a big deal. We do not want anyone soliciting or offering meds on the forum, whether they do it in the open or by PM. That is the reason for APSJ's mod note asking everyone to forward us the necessary information we need to remove such individuals from our forum.

I am amazed by the fact that at one time I thought this to be true myself

Once I became a member of staff myself I understood the folly of my perception. Honestly keeping up with stuff occurring in open forum is a significant challenge in and of itself - NO one has the amount of time required to keep up with what goes on in private messages -
I have been here forever and administrative access to private messages has never been deemed necessary. This is a support forum not national security.

Now if illegal drug use and abuse on a large enough scale is suspected there is nothing stopping law enforcement from gaining access to the database via the server. Cooperation with law enforcement is part of the TOS.{terms of service}

As far as the staff here is concerned the term PRIVATE means just that - what is written is private stays private unless you or the person to whom you have sent the message deems it otherwise. Once deleted for all practical purposes a message is gone for good -Message retrieval even if technically possible would be difficult therefore it is up to each member to forward offending private messages to administration - otherwise we have no way of knowing there is a problem.

Re: Has anyone ever PMed you requesting to purchase your controlled meds?

I. Should have been more clear : if it doesn't bother tambourine man then its not damaging to him but it would bother me and I would report them. The point of these forums is for support and advice not how/when/where you can get CUI drugs. Anyone who thinks they can convince someone to give them their meds is being insensitive to that person and that persons needs and only out for themselves.
