Not really that outside. The Dea has found lots of these situations. The pills are all traceable. Congress has voted several times to protect manufacturers.
Well there you go.
We should trust the people to solve the opioid crisis who are the people who facilitate the opioid crisis?

What the U.S. Surgeon General dubbed "The Opioid Crisis" likely began with over-prescription of powerful opioid pain relievers in the 1990s, which led to them becoming the most prescribed class of medications in the United States.
Seriously, take an aspirin.

I hate Norco etc. But I'm also in danger (as will many others) due to then having no choice but taking 6 to 10 ibuprofen at a time every 4 to 6 hours to try to stop pain. Note I say "try". Barely touches my pains.
Destroys the liver and more.. But the pain is slightly gone.

Well I don't think he is arguing that people who need it shouldn't get it. He's saying don't go to the Dr. With chronic migraines and get prescribed hydrocodone.
If only America had something like a National Health Service that could issue country-wide guidelines on what medications should be prescribed for what complaints.
Norco is, i believe, hydrocodone and ibuprofen.
