The three biggies are Requiring a Clinic to have all Owners and employees go through complete back ground checks, including financial disclosures for a 10 year period .... Reducing the allowable number of narcotics a patient can get without going back to the doctor for refills...... and requiring urine testing of patients receiving assorted specified drugs to verify they are actually taking them in the amount prescribed and Not taking other drugs while taking prescribed drugs.

An example would be if you were prescribed Lorcets for chronic pain and they urine test and find none in your system then they have to revoke the script... Of if they find meth, cocaine, pot and lorcets again they have to revoke the script and notify authorities...
anyone know

Kasper Law shows if you are getting Drugs from more then one doctor and it shows on all computers that set up with doctors and drug stores you have a problem that you need med and tests that show you are sick with a condition that the med are needed for you should not have a problem getting med if not then you don't need to be getting things thats what it all about that way the system can't be miss used

I thought they already did that stuff anyway. I know people who have been cut off their pain meds, due to faulty drug testing.

I thought most doctors offices already drug tested every monthand quit giving refills on narcotics.I have an older realitive that was getting pain meds from her family doctor,and they told her they werent writing them anymore and she would have to go to the pain clinic.They said gov. beshear had passed a law that said only pain clinics can prescribe pain meds.I'm not sure if thats all true but thats what they told her.She doesnt abuse them but shes being put out twenty bucks a month in gas now just to go and sits there for over three hours.Its rediculious.

No true words said as Doctors stero typing everyone as a drug abuser its politics and money who you know and who you blow as the old saying goes...it has got so now people dont get sick unless the Dr allows them to be .....I guess people will have to get hands full of mudd and straw and bite sticks and rub grease on there wounds...I hope how soon they make everyone in Amarica weare uniforms and live in the same Government houseing make being rich Illeagal a crime to have to much money in the bank and if you get to much money the Government automatically takes it away and if you hide it they put you in jail...and that would go for seantors and congrass and all heads of state , I wander who the One man will be that tells us all what we will do then?

No one should have to go without health care,No matter how young or old, does it make sense if someone is in pain to say Ohh how sad I see you have cancer Is it hurting they say it does Umm well, and I see you have nerve pain in your spine must be sad, do you scream Out real Loud sometimes? what bad luck your having , Im glad Im in good health and not in pain , Oh my , it looks like your teeth is rotted all the way down to the gums do they hurt? they look horrable they would have to hurt as bad as they look , If a human can live a wealthy painless life and know that others is in almost living hells and say well , its not my problem I cant help it they just fell down and broke there leg I never shoved them down why should I care, when people can become that hard hearted and just care for self and me and mine , our soceity is about to crumble apart and all will be in pain and suffering in the dark moaning in misery before to long.

They don't realize what they have done by coming up with this new law because they are forcing even more people that actually need pain medication to have to use all of their disability income and go out of the state to get it from a doctor there. And they are getting ready to see an explosion in the crime rate going off the scale. If they think it was bad before, man are they getting ready for a nightmare. They haven't seen anything yet, but wait and see how things are in 6 months from now. If they thought the jails were overcrowded before, they better get ready to start building them on just about every street corner. And people that are getting medications, you better start sleeping with a gun, and get ready for anything that you have of any value to be stolen, or attempted to be stolen. I pray to God that I am wrong, but I don't think I am.

You know they have tried to replace the house of prayer and turn it in to a police station, and they have tried to make the Doctors Jesus Christ, and turn the Holy Ghost in to Kasper the all watching eye.....cause they dont know the Almighty God that sees all and his son Jesus Christ You ever hear of the anger of the Lord? Honey they been people die and suffer and this palce has lied from its pulpits for the love of Money they all are full of the pure evil and it shall come to pass God will Judge them for this...No Flag , No army, No Government, No Church , No Dr nothing will be abel to withstand the Lords Jedgements when they come on to wiked men that has abused the suffering and sick they still may be a small space of repentance for them if they would repent of there hateful ways and let God change there hearts I hate to see the Lod Judge them for what they have did to the sick and suffering.

but now sometimes when people have pressed and pressed upon the weak and suffering without any mercy the Lord will move and bring them down the ones that has no sickness and has all the good of this life and thinks of there self as better and takes pleasure in others pains and turns there heads away and only sees the bad, The Lord is the Great equalizer of man he will put all on the same dirt floor naked standing hungry and barley alive clinging to life , Mr big Mr Im good better then them its not my problem You will find out what a problem that will come your way when the Lord God anger is against you for not having any mercy and saying you believe in Christ he want allow you to whore his sons name like that The Lord will show you wich side of the bread is butterd he will bring you down so low you will be a looking up at rats crawling over your face and say how did this ever happen to me I dont understand.

I dont worship faith based, that is a antiChrist saying, it is a word used to remove the name of Jesus Christ and any words that is spoken to water down the name of the Lord is antiChrist , and faith based is a wicked saying to use....it allows for liers to cross from Church to Government for personal gain and Love of money...My Lords name is Jesus Christ...not faith based.

God will not see the helpless suffer by the hands of mighty men and powers of this world without justice because he is Just God and full of mercy but also will judge the unrepted wiked for there sins against the poor and helpless ones that trust him for there help.
