I have been told by some medical professionals that all opiate patients are gonna have there meds taken except for cancer patients. Is this a scare tactic or fact?????? I have seen people who are in terrible pain loose their pain management and have had to stop their job. Suffering. No quality of life. so they are hitting the street for relief. This law is gonna cause more problems. People are going after meds illegally to get relief. Suicide rate gonna increase. The cbd hemp oil is great, but if it's not legal for pain relief in ur state or if your Dr does not approve and u use it, u could loose your dr and be left to fend for yourself. If you are on benzodiazepines, they are starting to stop narcs. They are claiming the two are respiratory depressants and dangerous. I have had several Drs disagree on this subject. I am terrified to place my qualityof life in the hands of people who are being controlled by people who don't know what debilitating chronic pain feels like. We are aliens. I feel like I'm not allowed to exist in this society that not only allows drinking and cigarettes a way to cope, but also is now using marijuana as a bumper crop and pain meds are now taboo. Taking patients meds is not gonna cure opiate epidemic. Other countries have their own labs making this stuff and putting it on the street. This is a loosing battle and it all comes down to human choice. If some wants it or needs it, they will find a way to get it. STOP making patients suffer. Drs are first to cause no harm. If someone's pain is long and hard it weighs on the mind and feelings of dying take over. Who's gonna stop that epidemic? Just my rant for today.
