Even as it stands now doctors are afraid to prescribe opioid pain meds even to the patients that need them. I understand that addiction is a problem -- but even those patients who go "by the book" are finding that getting treatment is becoming very difficult. And if you move and need to establish with a new doctor? It almost takes an act of Congress to get in. All more legislation is going to do is make it more difficult for existing patients. More laws and more restrictions aren't needed. Enforce the laws that are there and clamp down on the ILLEGAL sale of these drugs.
