I have been given untold opinions on what the new policy is.
The bottom line is you have see a doctor 3very time you need a refill.
Some 15,000 people die each from drug overdosing.
To that I say “Uh, really? I give a flip about them and their inability to manage life or a “somewhat low” tolerance.
The costs for this are going to be extraordinary and the demand for everyone’s time intolerable.
So, you’ll go to your doctor and wait, wait, wait....before receiving your script.
Then you’ll have to go the pharmacy and wait, wait, wait...then deliver your request and hope some idiot from China can’t understand what was written or wants to pretend the government can tell you what to do....or, or...maybe the script isn’t acceptable for a variety of reasons.
Then....you’ll wait like...forever until your script is filled and then you’ll wait in line again, behind all the welfare queens who get theirs free, while you pay for it out of your own pocket.
So, now you are required to make three trips for something you use to make only one for.
But hey! On a positive note CVS no longer sells cigarettes but, you can still obtain booze, chips and candies high in salt, fat and bereft of any real nutrition.
They are counting on a 12% reduction of pills.
Can you imagine what the doctors office is going to look like now?
There will be regular patients and then a boat load more people waiting impatiently for a DEA request form.
And what about the people who can't make all those trips or only with extreme difficulty and more pain? I guess, under Obama the benevolent one, the answer is just to die.
