State AGs ask Congress to repeal law that 'hamstrung' DEA's opioids fight

There are 4 comments on the Washington Times story from Nov 14, 2017, titled State AGs ask Congress to repeal law that 'hamstrung' DEA's opioids fight. In it, Washington Times reports that:

Nearly every state attorney general in the country wants Congress to repeal a 2016 law that reportedly made it "virtually impossible" for the Drug Enforcement Administration to suspend orders of narcotics that could fall into the hands of corrupt doctors or illicit pharmacies. In a letter to congressional leaders, 44 AGs said the law is a "step backward" in the fight against the prescription painkiller and opioids epidemic that is killing tens of thousands of Americans each year.

That would mean less money for pharma and it could as a result mean less money from pharma to Congressional honeypots, i.e., campaigns.

Let's not do anything rash.

The government should not interfere in the doctor patient relationship especially if the interference is done by thugs with NO medical training from a rogue agency.

This idiotic law will end up being Obama's legacy showpiece. Thank you Lord, that we don't have to endure that imbecilic racist any more. I hope you can help us get rid of McCain, Corker, Rubio, McConnell, Ryan, Graham, Hatch, Flake and all the Democrats soon. We have too much establishment dead wood.

Seriously, what about your own meds, Spud-boy? You're sounding crazier than usual, not to mention more racist and fascistic.

Seriously, do you sit there in an SS uniform to post? I've always wondered. Don't post any pictures, especially if you're not wearing pants.
