: Pain Control and Drug Policy: A Time for Change
focuses on America's national crisis in pain management caused by the widening divergence between the enormous contributions of opioids ("narcotics") to pain management in the clinical setting and the mistaken belief that they are dangerous, highly addictive drugs. After dissecting the strategy and tactics of the War on Drugs from medical, historical, legal, socioeconomic, and geopolitical perspectives, Guy Faguet MD indicts the 40-year-long War on Drugs for having triggered a pain management crisis in the United States that dictates how pain physicians can prescribe opioids and violates the basic human right to pain relief of tens of millions of American chronic pain sufferers despite its failure to stem the supply of illicit drugs, despite expenditures of half a trillion dollars, and despite fomenting organized crime, government corruption, racial injustice, and social disruption in both the United States and the producer countries. He concludes with a clarion call for the abandonment of the War on Drugs, disbanding the Drug Enforcement Administration, and encouraging Congress to repeal the Controlled Substances Act.
