New legislation proposed - 3 day limit opioid scripts

Recommended Posts

Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced a new proposal for a three-day limit on prescribed opioids in his state. Scott said Tuesday he will propose the legislation and more than $50 million to next year's budget to combat opioid abuse, WPTV reported.


The legislation would require all health care providers who prescribe or distribute medication to participate in the Florida Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, a statewide database that monitors prescriptions for controlled substances. The legislation includes reforms to combat unlicensed pain management clinics and require continuing education courses on responsibly prescribing opioids, and would also create new opportunities for federal grant funding, according to a statement from the governor's office.

A highlight of the legislation is a three-day limit on prescribed opioids, unless strict conditions are met that would require a seven-day supply.

The proposed $50 million budget would include funding for substance abuse treatment, counseling and recovery services, and The Florida Violent Crime and Drug Control Council.

"These proposals will make a major impact on limiting the chance of drug addiction, reducing the ability for dangerous drugs to spread in our communities, giving vulnerable Floridians the support they need, and ensuring our hard working law enforcement officers have the resources to protect Floridians," Scott said in a statement.

Scott declared the opioid epidemic in the state of Florida a public health emergency in May and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports deaths from prescription opioids and heroin have more than quadrupled since 1999.

Senate President Joe Negron and House Speaker Richard Corcoran are both supportive of the legislative. In a statement from the governor's office, both said they are committed to working to combat opioid abuse and are "dedicated to protecting our families and communities from the national opioid epidemic."

You know what this will do? Same thing rescheduling hydro did: increase heroin use and illicit pain killers. Le sigh. I believe two other states utilize the 7-day limit, but 3 days?? Really??

Heroin deaths are about to explode accross the US like never before, it will be the number one issue on all news and newspapers. This will be the worst epidemic to hit the US since HIV was found and named back in the 80s. When they ban kratom across the whole country, the DEA is going to ban it and when they do hundreds of thousands of addics are going to go back to heroin and many will overdose.

An all natural leaf is helping so many people with Heroin addiction it's sad money is more important than human life. The DEA along with the FDA are ruthless murderers. Let the blood of tens of thousands be on their hands!!!!!

Like the scriptures say "money is the root of all kinds of evil".  Evil people in high places, they know this will happen. Hard to believe humans could be this evil it's makes me sick to my stomach.

I was watching a program on TV last nite about the rapid increase in heroin usage skyrocketing over the last 12 months.

It was so sad to see these kids that had been scripted Oxys and other tabs, turn to smack because the doctors are no longer

prescribing the tabs that they used to and there now scoring smack at much cheaper prices than they were paying both

doctors and dealers for there Oxys!   Sad state of affairs indeed.. ☣️

The scriptures do NOT say that money is the root of all evil. They say that the LOVE of money is the root of all evil. There's nothing wrong with God's children having money. However, the G*dd*mn mother porking defuckinga is the farthest thing from a child of God that was EVER conceived. Look at how hard the devil works at keeping them in power. There's nothing like PAIN to perpetuate the devil's (and the government's) work. No bigger spiritual stew than keeping people away from their God by way of pain!

Oh, yeah. I think that the 3-day or 7-day time frame refers to post-procedure p@!n m3ds. 3 or 7 days after my last operation would have seen me literally jumping out the hospital window just to escape the p@!n. Chr0n!c p@!n patients needn't worry until next week, when even more draconian measures will come into play. Thumbscrews and cigar burns, anyone? How about for Gov. Scott...swallow some drano, asshole?

I personally have not seen any of this happening, I think its just another dumb idea trump has, if the pill is prescribed, the junkie will figure out how to get it, whether it be 3 days at a time or not. Hell, what junkie  can afford to buy 30 days at a time any way?

 

Not calling anyone hear a junkie,  but i would assume this is what its trying to alliminate, correct, reselling of meds? Correct me if i'm wrong

All any government has to do is to look at Portugal and how the burglary and other drug related crime has significantly lowered ever since they decriminalised and legalised. It’s been a massive success & has allowed their government to fund other and more important issues. 

I could go on and wax lyrical on this topic but it’s bloody obvious, to me at least, that using so many resources to catching drug dealers & end users only ever has a bad conclusion. 

Sell and tax I say but, sadly, we are too apathetic to even start a campaign. I would gladly start but my worst disease has put pay to me being ever able to plan and follow up on the planning needed. 

I guess I could at least start a petition though. 

My GP has cut my Opiods by 2/3 but it’s actually been a good thing for me and I’ve lost 4 stones or 56 pounds in the process and feel much more energy. 

In the U.K. the laws have changed significantly and all doctors are now only allowed to give Opiods in genuine emergencies and only until handed over to specialists plus they have been given a remit to cut ALL of us opiod users to a minimum amount. That amount is 120mg. They truly believe that by using 120mg that this is the limit where giving more makes no difference but the irony is that I can have more ora or liquid opiod, for breakthrough pain. 

In closing, ultimately we get the government we deserve with apathy being our worst enemy

If you really want to get into some serious reading , on this and many other topics then read up on the Bilderberg group and their agenda.  They really don’t want us proles alive and have a plan to very literally kill many off by means of non intervention.

I take it you have read the book of Job ? If drawn to it then read the apocryphal bible story of Tobit. Seems GOD likes to “test” us and, although I’m no bible expert, there are many cases where GOD puts his flock through absolute torture, to test their beliefs

My new insurance will only cover my prescription for opiates if I go to the pharmacy once a week.

What is the benefit here? What am I missing? Do they hope that if they make it inconvenient enough we will just give up? 

So now that I have insurance I pay about  $70 more than when I was uninsured. How stupid is that?

@2earlsthis is so very sad. As if the Gov hasn’t scared enough competent doctors and entangled then in enough red tape. I was reading on Twitter about the Good RX card that many are using bc of this sort of thing. A celebrity was unable to get his meds so it was a long topic. Also can you choose to pay out of pocket? My pharmacy has done that for me when insurance won’t cover something. I’m so very sorry you have yet another obstacle.
