@mjhegar hi there. So there’s another crisis happening that never gets reported by MSM, nor acknowledged by almost every politician- including Cornyn. Chronic/intractable pain patients have been swept up in this illicit opioid crisis, being forced off of meds they’ve taken for 1)
2) years with no problems. The result are many hundreds of suicides, lost jobs and being forced onto disability and millions forced to now suffer with pain every single minute of their lives. The pill mills and criminal Drs had to go, no doubt. A national tragedy. What say you?
These patients are being lumped into the same category as those who addict and they are dying because of it. Do you agree that government needs to stay out of dr’s offices? Do you agree that the government needs to stop the practice of telling doctors what they can and can’t do?

Watch Myth 11: Addiction and Dependency are the same thing via @YouTube big misconception! adds millions to the fake numbers. There is less than 1% opiate addicted people now and back to the 1920’s. Rare now & rare then. Where are the new CDC addicts?
Watch Myth #10 PALLIATIVE CARE via @YouTube 1st page unauthorized cdc guidelines and many state laws EXEMPT DOSE LIMITS for palliative care. So let’s DO IT. Protects doctors too exceeding the Brandeis/CDC dangerous dose limits for their Z51.5 patients
