Re: Controlled substance laws unfair to Seniors

A possible, but, unlikely solution to your problem is to switch to a Schedule IV opioid, which, depending on your state, allows a 90 day supply and 3 refills.  The problem is that you have to be genetically abnormal for any Schedule IV opioid to be effective. 

 

Some are

 

Tramadol

 

Pentazocine/naloxone

 

Butorphanol

 

I regularly take pentazocine/naloxone with good results.  I have tried the other two and butorphanol is also effective for me.  Tramadol has no noticeable effect on me.  I reiterate, it is genetic.

Of course, they are unfair but your viewpoint is shallow in that you don't know who your enemies are and I do.  The cause of the problem is overwhelming sympathy for the self inflicted injuries of drug abusers within our culture.  And, the prevailing sympathizers of those with self inflicted injuries are Liberals.

 

Drug abusers should not only be allowed to kill themselves, it should be encouraged.  I have the opposite of sympathy for drug abusers because they and their liberal guardians decrease my quality of life.
