I don’t think the DEA thought this through. Their statistics keep changing and quite frankly, are low by most people’s standards. There are people DYING from various forms of chronic pain because pain management clinics are taking away their medicine and doctors are afraid to prescribe the medicine they’ve responsibly taken from day one. This is a war for pharmaceutical companies and has NOTHING to do with stats or pain patients. They’re fighting the wrong battle here. By taking away the methods in which we help ourselves, you are increasing the suicide rate in this country, nothing more. The lawsuits that will stem from their choices will be deafening. The outcry from healthy people should be just as loud as ours.
