PostSubject: Stupid Laws   Sat May 27, 2017 5:34 pm

No, I'm not talking about the silly laws like the one in Baldwin Park which states that nobody is allowed to ride a bicycle in a swimming pool.

I'm talking about the stupid laws. The ones that make no fucking sense.

A couple of years ago, a popular pain medication - hydrocodone - was elevated by the feds to the same classification as morphine or heroin. This mandates that every prescription must be a written script by the physician. Physicians are not allowed to call or fax the prescription. Refills are not allowed. So in order to get the medication (maximum thirty-day supply) you must get a script from the doctor once a month and then drive to the pharmacy to get the prescription filled. In my case, this takes at least two hours.

Okay, Fine. But consider this: I can get codeine through the insurance company's mail-order pharmacy. The doctor just sends them a fax or an email. The only limitation is that the insurance will only allow a ninety-day supply (as with every other drug). What's the difference? Hydrocodone is a lab-created opiate, while codeine is an opiate straight from the poppy.

Stupid fucking law.
