"Bush Should Feel Doctors' Pain"

Annoying account of the DEA's overstepping its bounds to curb the use of OxyContin and other painkillers. I don't really understand the motivations after prohibition to limit an individual's choice to hurt themselves. I would imagine the same puritanical forces are at work, combined with bureaucrats who want more power.

I guess the lack of respect for federalism is even more annoying.

ya, i remember bush's main campaign themes were "no more drug war" and "returning america to federalist, limited government principles" ;D

this has little to do with Bush, except that he is exactly the same as his alternative and predecessors.

hopefully, there will be some highly reputable operation to import drugs which can act as an alternative to these doctors. also, i hope doctors start using their sway at least in this case. they certainly have the power.
