‘We are putting more restrictions on law abiding citizens with these new laws and regulations while doing very little to curb the illegal drug problem in this country.’ – Mohave County Supervisor Buster Johnson

 

LAKE HAVASU CITY – The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is holding a hearing this week in Silver Springs, Maryland, to listen to those suffering from chronic pain.

Thousands have weighed in and many are complaining about new governmental regulations that may well end their reliance on opioids to relieve their suffering. Mohave County Supervisor Buster Johnson says, “It’s vitally important that chronic pain sufferers have their voices heard and that government listens carefully regarding this hugely important issue. States have acted too quickly and enacted new laws without paying attention to those most directly affected in the matter of opioids.” Johnson adds that readers can add their voice, as well, by responding online at the website listed below.

The FDA claims it wants to be accommodating as it tackles the “opioid crisis.” Now, officials are listening to a wide array of stories in which many say only opioids have helped curb their pain. The FDA says it wants to consider the needs of patients with “chronic, intractable pain” as it also looks at the problems of opioids, and “encourages” drug companies to offer safer alternatives.
