A neighbor tells me he gets his Oxycontin from Mexico through the mail without a prescription and also says it's cheaper than buying here? How does he do this? I would think it's illegal ?

Honestly, when the pharmacy is not a certified (a certified pharmacy doesn't send out oxycontin without prescriptions, and not only that, but it's technically illegal to get scheduled drugs via web in the USA, with or without a prescription), you don't really know what it is that you're getting. Often times the pill will looks about the same, but the inscription won't be as sharp, as the mold is created from a pill vs. from the original manufactured mold. Also, if it's not cut, it might be something altogether different. Generally speaking, it's a bad idea. Your neighbor might be able to do this cause customs can only check so many things, and often don't bother with the small stuff, although the chances of being checked goes way way up when you're ordering a schedule 2, 3 or 4 drug. You have to remember that there's allot of cheaper and more potent drugs out there that it can be swapped out with.
For example, heroin is cheaper than oxycontin when you take potency into account. I honestly have no idea as to what they're cut with, but as an overall, as I said before... it really is a very bad idea...
For whatever it's worth, these sorts of questions really shouldn't even be posted here. When purchasing a schedule 2 drug without a prescription, it's obvious that it's for recreation use. Please direct these questions in the future to bluelight.ru Drugs.com is a site that is dedicated to people who have serious medical issues such as chronic pain, cancer, addiction and depression to name only a few. Many of us use this site cause talking about ptsd to a co-worker often isn't a good idea, and in fact, is blunt out tabu. This is a site for support, and not for a how to get and abuse drugs.
