    ANOTHER Patriot linked to Oxycontin dealing

    http://www.fannation.com/truth_and_rumors/view/52955
    An accused drug dealer who allegedly sold hundreds of OxyContin pills to a New England Patriots lineman is old pals with another player and was a longtime political aide to an East Boston lawmaker, the Herald has learned. Daniel Ekasala, who faces charges of peddling the addictive prescription opiates to hulking Pats player Nick Kaczur, is also a childhood friend of former Patriots tight end Jermaine Wiggins. The two grew up together in East Boston but Ekasala's lawyer, Bernard Grossberg, said his client hasn't talked to the player in years.

    Its turning out to be a stellar year for the entire Patriot organization. They're fans must be very proud.

    Lol, nice try, but if thats all you got, thats a pretty tenuous link.

    He grew up with the guy?

    I grew up with dudes that are dead or in jail.

    And look at me.

    I spend hours alone on a JI message board with my imaginary inernethz friends.

    Er.....i guess you are right.

    I hate the stuff.

    I have a prescription filled with about 20 pills for two wisdom teeth I had pulled a few months ago. One of my friends raved about how good he felt taking it for his knee pain(arthroscropic), so I figured I use one after the extraction.

    Mistake. I was in very little pain to begin with, but I wanted to just take a nap and relax, so I took one and shortly after, the room started spinning. I felt nauseous, and I sweated through my clothes. The side effects were worse than the damn extraction itself and I refused to take any more.

    I mentioned this to my dentist and he laughed. Said it happens to him too and he doesn't like prescribing it!!!!

    I still have that damn bottle on my dresser.....

    Yeah, those things are terrible. The absolute worst. I hate them.
    So how much do you want for that bottle?
