120

 Dear Goat,I see that Dynaps stated that the 120 amount was for Nebrska only and they even changed that amount. I went and my good doctor gave me the same amount as always.Diaezpam was given but cut WAY back.So as the election results are fact,the RX "problem" has taken a backseat again.good show.RD

to Dan Rocker about the LOSS of civil liberties

i dont want to even start with all of the reasons why they are doing this to us. Bottom line is what   DO we do,more so than what can we do. Fist playing nice ; ACLU .im on their website now and will call them this am.then yes an attorney or more. we will need $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.i will stat a legitimate operation.i hate to call it a charity but we must be tax exempt and able to take all donations.with this hopefully we can do things. cancer parties in pink - wellwell our chronic pain foundatio will Rage  in RED !

my body my choice

i say  WE TAKE THE FIGHT TO THEM! FIRST WE NEED TO GET SOMEONE IN THE CARTEL TO ADMIT THAT THE DEA : 'D' DEMONIC - 'E' EVIL  'A' AGENY IS IN BED WIH THE CARTEL. RUN THAT ON CNN OR 20/20 ETC. THEN WE MARCH ON DC WITH SPECIFIC DEMANDS.

What Do You Think Any of That Will Accomplish?

I hesitated a long while before deciding I would comment. I do not want this to become a flame war, so I am going to phrase my words with careful calculation.

First, what do you expect the ACLU to do? What civil liberties, exactly, are being stepped on? Believe me, I agree that things are quite out of hand, but the ACLU is not your answer. Unless you went to the Dr and he or she water boarded you, I highly doubt they will even give your case a second look.

Secondly, what information do you have (real information, not conspiracy theory info) to support the claim that the DEA is in bed with the cartels? Common sense should tell most people that, if what you say has any legs to stand on at all, then there is some serious misunderstandings between the cartels and the DEA. I highly doubt the cartels said, "hey, lets team up, and prevent patients from getting drugs." Sure, the crackdown on opioid prescriptions has definitely led a few people to the street drug opiate beginning with an H, but I highly doubt the DEA would want this type of reaction.

With respect to marching to DC- most of us chronic pain patients dread even getting up and walking down the hall to the bathroom. If someone can march to DC, especially claiming they need more access and eased regulations on narcotic pain meds, perhaps that is an indicator that the patient may not truly need as much pain medicine as they seem to think they do.

While I know my post may seem "Pro DEA", I can assure you that I disagree with what the DEA is doing as much as the next person. However, I have long held the belief that this site try to remain factually accurate as much as possible. For that reason, I was inclined to respond to your post. Please do not take what I said personally. I believe we all have the right to express ourselves, within the stated rules of the site of course, and I value all opinions. Unfortunately, I also believe in the right to correct information instead of highly biased posts that are made on emotion.
