More evidence of the Dark Ages that we are living in. Not going to take this seriously until it includes the Management teams at Merck, Eli Lilly and McKesson (the largest opioid distributor in the U.S.) From the article:

“Death penalty cases are extremely difficult and cumbersome and complicated,” one former federal prosecutor told Reuters when Trump first announced the plan. “They take a long time, lots of resources and every U.S. Attorneys office has a lot of limited resources."

Under U.S. law, there are only four limited circumstances in which the death penalty can be sought in federal drug cases.

Those include cases which involve racketeering, cases involving the use of a firearm resulting in death during a drug trafficking crime, cases where a murder is committed as a part of a crime enterprise and cases involving large quantities of drugs.

OK, Mr. Sessions: Should these five M.D.'s be given death then? How about the people who paid them the kickbacks?

A better answer is to just legalize all opioids, cut out the big pharma profits, the Dr. profits. Let Dr.'s make legal recommendations to patients seeking pain relief, the same way they do when they tell people to take some Motrin and they will get better.

Let people go to the pharmacies, get what they need/want. Those who want to overdose, will do so. Some will die. HOWEVER,

Everybody else will just get what they need to manage their pain and live their lives.

Trying to control Doctor's and tell them how many prescriptions they can write per month/year or what they are allowed to give their patients is preposterous. Everybody's pain is different, it is personal on a case by case basis. How can the govt. think they can legislate that?

Just as one size does not fit all, neither does some idea of how much relief a person should need. Fat people need more drugs because they do not get the same amount of relief as a think person does, they have a bigger body mass to medicate. Do they take that into account when they want to decide the dosages and amounts a Doctor can prescribe to a patient for certain conditions?

New York State did this crap back in the 70's during the Rockefeller drug law days. They told Dr.'s , they decided certain medications should be CONTROLLED, Doctor's would have to write triplicate prescriptions and one of those would go to the state to be monitored, tracked and if Doctor's wrote too many tranquilizer prescriptions, they would be notified by the State and warned that they could be IDENTIFIED by the STATE as a Doctor abusing his prescription writing privileges and labeled as a Doctor who was providing too many dangerous CONTROLLED drug prescriptions.

Medications are something personal between a Doctor and his/her patient. The govt. has no business being involved in this to the extent they want to be.

Even now in New York State, all prescriptions have to be submitted electronically to pharmacies, there are no more handwritten prescriptions, this is supposed to cut down on patients going Doctor shopping, getting multiple prescriptions for pain meds etc. And also the pharmacies share info. so they can see your entire prescription history so they can track you and identify you and probably report you if they think you use too many of certain types of medications.

Everyone is already being treated as crooks here, and the govt. wants MORE CONTROL? In Central America, you can just go into a pharmacy and the pharmacist will tell you what you need for your condition and provide it. There is trust, honor and relief for people. They have no opioid crisis.

If people need excessive opioid prescriptions, who decides what is excessive?

How much pain are people going to be mandated by the govt. to endure?

And what about the more than 40 million people who cannot afford health care coverage, what are they supposed to do about their pain? A government who cannot provide health care coverage for it's citizens should stop trying to legislate what any medical provider does.

Fine with me. The guy on the corner or the guy behind the counter. The shady doctor giving out candy or the underground regional distributor bringing it across the boarder. I'm a death penalty proponent though. While we are at it, let's name the names of the people responsible for pushing these end-of-life type pain killers for broader use and the doctors who irresponsibly wrote the scripts. Maybe they would like it if we get their family and loved addicted as well.
