Hello & Happy Spring! (Thread) If you haven’t been on here til 1am EST, I’m going to unpack recently announced #opioid bill S-724 (named for John McCain). For reax check out threads by @erinbiba and @AnaMardoll (call @gillibrandNY ASAP to protest bill.) Onto the breakdown:
Sen. Gillibrand introduced this bill with a flip referral to dental work and a misunderstanding of the term “acute pain”. #AcutePain does not mean ‘severe’ in medical terms, it means pain lasting up to/less than 6mos. If you’ve ever had a gunshot wound,
been in/had a serious accident, needed extensive surgery, had #fibromyalgia #arthritis #endometriosis or #pelvicpain #backpain -just to name a few-you may know that sometimes one needs more than 7 days of pain meds.

Just in: @GovMaryFallin says NO special session will be called to address #sq788, which legalized medical marijuana Tuesday.

@HealthyOklahoma will create emergency rules to implement, but this removes the potential for #okleg (this year, anyway) to severely rollback the new law
This likely was a smart political decision for #okleg Republican incumbents who still have to face a run-off or general election challenge.

Even the perception of undermining the law could've caused major blowback when pro-marijuana voters head back to the polls
One of the biggest changes that #okleg could've made in a special session would be restricting those eligible for medical marijuana to those with a set of "qualifying conditions" #SQ788
