DeLuca on the Pain Doctor Crackdown; Alex Coolman; Drug War Blog; 2007-06-02.<br /><br /> Excerpt:<br /><br /> "This week Alex DeLuca had an interesting post on the nationwide criminal crackdown on pain doctors and in particular on the effects that this crackdown is having on patients who were previously under the care of these doctors. The bizarre thing, DeLuca notes, is that people who were once steady on pain management medication are instantly being reclassified as "addicts," with no distinction being made between dependence and addiction."<br /><br /> The post by me referred to is:<br /><br /> Utah and Federal Law Enforcement Collaborate Towards a Final Solution to the Prescription Drug Abuse Plague; Alex DeLuca; War on Doctors / Pain Crisis; 2007-05-3

- Utah / Feds Boldly Move Toward Solution to Addiction
Excerpt: So, what have we got? We have local officials running around preparing for a hypothetical law enforcement problem the policeman is hyping. Through some horrific leap of irrationality and probably criminal negligence, state and local officials have taken law enforcement’s worst case scenario - that the doctor was a drug dealer, all of his “patients” criminal addicts, all the meds all of them were ever prescribed were 100% diverted to high school students leading to generations of misery and crime for sure - and blotted out any notion that there might be a medically directed public health approach to consider. And no criminal charges [against Dr. William Stack] have even been filed yet.
