209. That is a problem. I also see a problem between the states and the fed level - they
have done raids in Missoula I read. So the states are doing one thing and the feds are saying basically "no you don't" with the patients getting caught in the crossfire.

I wish things were better than this, honestly.

There is a similar problem with opiates being so demonized that people with chronic pain (back pain, cancer pain, etc.) are being left in pain. I've gone through a whole bunch of physical pain in my life, unfortunately, and I can tell you nothing wears down the spirit more than pain and having no escape from it.

I feel sorry for this guy. The situation in the state is wrong. If these prescriptions are legal, they ought to be recognized as such.

But I'm guessing in this job climate, with so many job-seekers and so few jobs, anyone with any notable health problems won't get hired. It's not fair but that's the kind of thing going on right now.
