I pray this works out for those who have nerve damage, it would be wonderful, but if they could remove the sedation and the high most people feel.

Just think it might reduce useage from drug abusers and those who need it can be left alone with our pain specialist. WE ARE NOT THE PROBLEM!

If this drug proves to be as effective for humans as mice, then this could revolutionize the medical industry. At last a cure for spinal cord injury may be available. Hopefully, cures for this and other previously incurable diseases can't be too far off.
