Stop Making Chronic Pain Patients Suffer

This petition had 2,034 supporters

My name is Ashton Smith. I deal with chronic pain every single day of my life. Pain medication helps me live a semi normal life but the war on opioids has done nothing but harm people like me. The DEA has doctors afraid to prescribe anything for people in legitimate pain for fear of the DEA: who threaten their licenses. Everyone keeps asking for harder laws due to the heroin "epidemic" but this epidemic is caused by the harsh 2014 rescheduling of opioids. People in chronic pain are resorting to heroin or suicide because no one is treating their pain. Multiple studies have shown people with chronic pain rarely abuse their medication. We ask the DEA to think of us when you make it harder for us to function. Allow doctors to BE doctors & stop the war on chronic pain patients
