Will The Feds Ban Your Pain Meds?
Great video that debunks some of the crapthink about how taking pain pills will automatically ruin lives: reason.tv's Ted Balaker:
I saw my dear friend Cathy Seipp suffering terribly from lung cancer, and her Oxycodone helped ease her suffering. It's unthinkable that she wouldn't have had this to help her.
I deal with some of the anti-drug paranoia surrounding my own ingestion of Ritalin. Sure, some people abuse it, but it helps me focus so I can write. And I've been taking the same 10 mg. dose for about 10 years. Better living through chemistry. It's simply fantastic that I can take a pill, with almost no side-effects for me, apparently (according to an epidemiologist friend) and be better at what I do.
