“Opioid based painkillers replace one type of pain with another. No thanks; I’ve seen the damage done, and I’ll have no part of that.”

Easy to say, until you find yourself thrashing about, out of control, with pain that only opiates can control.

Been there, experienced it. In my case, surgery relieved the pain but without the opiate based pain killer, I was unable to hold still for the CAT scan which I knew was essential prior to any operation.

SOmetimes, will alone can’t overcome pain.

As for addiction, remove the government and most of those issues go away.

Just removing the War on Drugs and the militarized Geheimness StaatPoleitzi we know as SWAT teams would be worth any number of addicts killing themselves with open market drugs.

Cheap drugs remove the major reason that druggies commit crimes - that reason being crime is presently their only way to finance their addiction.

Decriminalize drugs, remove criminals largest motive to commit crimes

Their life is their business. Don’t “protect” them by infringing my rights!

Druggie deaths is never a valid reason to infringe the rights of American citizens.

Oh, I know a thing or two regarding pain".

Please don't misconstrue my previous post as approving of more meddlesome intrusion by the government. Recognize it as an emphatic warning about Opioid based painkillers. Recognize their dangers. Get off them as soon as you can!
