DEA vs. Doctors

As I commented on earlier, law enforcement-types can stepped up the war on doctors who prescribe drugs (aka medication), when those drugs are either abused or then sold for recreational purposes. Today, Radley Balko has it out with DEA administrator Karen Tandy over this issue. This whole trend is pretty sad, and we really need to look at what the costs and benefits of such a policy will be on patients. The toll from the war on drugs likely ruining more lives than drugs ever have.
