WHERE DOES MCCAIN STAND ON METHADONE MAINTENANCE?
Although rigidly apolitical, we feel it's important to ensure that readers know the position of the presidential candidates re. methadone maintenance. OBAMA: can't swear to it, but I don't believe he has ever voiced an opinion. Take that for what it may be worth. MCCAIN: in May 1999 on the floor of the Senate said, among other things, that methadone maintenance was "disgusting and immoral" and introduced a bill that, in part, would limit reimbursement for methadone maintenance to six months. Check it out. Comments as always welcome. And before anyone asks: no, I do not know what position Gov. Palin has on this topic, or Senator Biden.
