Howscary is this??? It is human abuse to people who need relief from pain meds. I bet the abusers find there meds. The ones that don;t abuse will be the ones to suffer here. makes me sad :cry:

Agreed Mel, another example of our countries philosophy to punish everyone for the mistakes of the few. I know there is an opiate epidemic and something needs to be done but why can't governments use common sense and decide things on a case by case basis.

It reminds me of the states with strict gun laws. The criminals aren't obtaining their guns legally most of the time anyway. So all it does is take them away from the law abiding citizens. I do not believe government officials have any place to dictate what medication a Dr prescribes his/her patient's. I am not saying Drs should be allowed to be negligible but they are the one's with medical degrees and they should be calling the shots.

this is such a sad story..........
Im glad the guy got help in the end, but holy crap it makes you think about everyone else just like him out there that cant find help.
Like breezy said, I cant believe the gov't thinks they know more about what patients get pain meds adn which ones dont.

AND I cant believe methadone is the 'prefered pain reliever' seriously????

yea its great for pain, but someone with a migraine, doesnt need methadone. Im sure now that the law says its 'preferred' it'll be written like vicodin was......lol

I had a high tolerance the first time I took it, and loved it. I can only imagine what a non;opiate dependant person would feel like taking it..

anyways, thanks for posting the story.
I agree with what the basic point of the law is,,,, to make rules about the over perscribing of pain meds,
but what a f-up in my opinion!!
