As a chronic pain person now 3 years with out pain meds, my life is a living hell. The governmental interference in the doctors offices has caused fear, and doctors will no longer treat us because they fear the DEA. There is, always was an illicit drug problem but lies and false stats made it our problem. Lack of reasonable medical care now dooms us to a life of 24/7 pain or suicide. We are or were on long term stable doses without issue. Please correct this false held belief that prescribed meds were the problem as they never were.
