To change the new laws on prescription Opioids.

The CARA 2.0 Act, billed as the sequel to the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act of late 2016, would be the most substantive action Congress has taken to address the opioid crisis since President Trump took office.
The bill would aggressively limit doctors’ ability to hand out lengthy opioids prescriptions, exempting only cancer, chronic pain, and hospice treatment from the three-day initial prescription limits. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new prescription guidelines in 2016 that indicate three-day prescriptions are typically sufficient and seven-day prescriptions are rarely necessary. A number of states have already enacted laws limiting first-time opioid prescriptions to three, five, or seven days.
Many people are living off of Opioids. There are many bed-ridden/sick patients who can’t afford to drive to their doctor just to get meds. Now there is a limit to how many you can get. I was denied meds because of this law. The doctor says there is nothing they can do. All I want is change. The problem lies in illegal uses of opioids not the the patients who need it.
