    What can we do to change the laws??? The law is a knee jerk reaction and doesn't address the bigger problem of illegal street drugs. The people being punished by these laws are the legitimate chronic pain patients and some of the doctors who treat them. I am one of these patients. I've been treated for chronic pain issues for the last 9 years. Without my meds, I could not work or care for my son. Recently, my pain doctor got on a power trip and discharged me from her clinic. I'm trying to reverse her discharge by seeing another provider in the clinic but their patient relations has to investigate the situation. Meanwhile, my meds ran out friday. I was told by pain management and primary care to go to ER to get a script to last until either their reverse the discharge or I see a new pain management doctor. ER tells me they are not allowed to write a script for any pain meds to chronic pain patients, they can only give them a dose while at the ER. The Opioid Epidemic law prevents them. Only primary care or pain management is allowed to write any narcotic script for chronic pain patients. Its saturday, I have no meds...ER gave me a dose that will last 8 hours tops, I cant get meds from my primary care doctor because he is afraid and refuses to write a script. I can't get a new pain doctor to at least monday or tuesday. No one can help me! How is this right? The law punishes me because I have a genetic disorder that requires pain meds. This law can not stand! We need to fight this law, NOW!!!! How do we start the ball rolling?
