Prescription opioids cause about half of annual opioid-related overdose deaths. The Budgeting for Opioid Addiction Treatment Act is a good step in the right direction, without hurting those who need the pain management. This is only a first step, however. Price regulation for drugs needs to be instilled. There is no reason we should pay several times more than other nations for the same drugs from the same sellers. Something akin to how the ACA limits profit margins for insurers needs to be enacted.
