  1. A whole lot accurate but this post seems to be trying to cover the doctors ass.. as if they didn’t know what was going on. when I was going to the pain clinics in the late 90s & early 2000 at $350 cash per visit, the waiting rooms so packed people were standing on each other’s feet and lined up out the door to get in and I visited many doctors office and pain clinics the facts are the doctors were getting rich as well as the pharmaceutical reps and pharmaceutical companies themself if you ask me it was a sort of organized crime but the doctors playing dumb like they had no idea? victimized! the only reason they started getting so picky and judgmental is when they was all starting to go to prison for writing prescriptions, it was at that point they started blaming the patients and saying it was our fault we were the drug seekers coming into trick them in to giving us prescriptions; well we didn’t have to work to hard doing it, I know this because i ended up that seeker, my friends & family my home town was destroyed because of this corruption and after the DEA Crackdown it got so much worse because then you had all of us addicts looking to fill their fix. the heroine flooded the streets which is cheaper and just as good then you add Fentanyl and carfentanil now it’s twice as deadly if not more this has got to be the worst case of corruption and corporate greed in US history.. a tragedy that has ruined and ended so many lives.
