dea thugs seem bent on forcing as many people to suffer unnecessarily as possible! Walgreen's has some of the strictest policies when it comes to dispensing controlled substances! This is just grandstanding by dea thugs trying to protect their bloated paychecks!

This is what happens when government gets between you and your Dr. Government thinks they know better how to treat you. There is no doubt abuse but this isn't how you address it. You have a right to be treated for pain. Now what will those who really have pain do? They will be at the mercy of criminal suppliers. This is so sad.

Its sad when big government steps in not caring about the trickle effect. The DEA did this to cardinal(pharmacy distribution warehouse) which not only effected Walgreens and CVS but also many hospitals. Try going to the ER and possibly not having narcotics to help with surgery because the DEA wants to crack down with out caring about the trickle effect. So CVS fills too many narcotics, revoke suppliers license, results in many other facilities who depends on that supplier to suffer, more importantly the patients suffer. You would think the pharmacies that fill too many would have their license individually suspended.

I'm so sick of dea trying to waste tax payers money and making it nearly impossible to get ur oxycodone I broke 70 bones in my body so I have a few narcotics I have to take I'm on ssi and still have a problem I went in front of a judge that thought what I was taking was fine but these dea Rambos that could find plenty of other police work like all these murders and robberies and they blme it on prescription narcotics so they can keep a name for them self u made it so hard to get them I hope scientist find a ddrug that stops pain and dea can't fuck with the additives used to stop pain.and dea can go play cop on the murders and rapest and leave places that sell narcotic perscriptions if u need something to do hot the places that call themselves pharmacies and charge u 9 dollars a pill and won't take insurance u don't do shit to them Walgreens and cvs are very strict how they handle narcotics but there the one u keep messing with go after these crooks that charge that crazy price without dea saying a word so I think Walgreens and cvs should sue the dea for not going after these pharmacies that will not take ur insurance. But will galge u for 9$ a pill ur screwing with the wrong pharmacies go get some from peters off orange camp won't take insurance but will charge u 9$ and dea hasn't done shit dea ur a joke and waste of tax money I hate u for making it hard to fill my prescription I've proven I'm disabled I don't need these want to be tuff guys making it hard to get my meds
