DEA’S STRONG-ARMING OF THE MEDICAL PROFESSION
The canary in the coal mine is a metaphor alluding to the initial sign of an impending calamity. An apt metaphor for what just transpired. Recently, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) issued a public safety alert informing the public about a “sharp increase in fake prescription pills containing Fentanyl and Meth[amphetamines].”
The alert was the canary in the coal mine, but the impending calamity is not what we are led to believe. We have known of a rise in counterfeit prescription pills for many years. It was a rise induced directly by DEA policies inflicted upon patients.
“THE DEA ORCHESTRATED A CULTURE OF FEAR THAT CAN BE DESCRIBED AS MEDICAL MCCARTHYISM, IN WHICH THE FEAR OF PROSECUTION DEFINED THE QUALITY OF CARE.”
The impending calamity is not the risks counterfeit pills pose to the public but the legal liability the DEA faces for its failed policies.
For years federal agencies and physician advocacy groups remained in lockstep on the causes of the opioid epidemic. We heard it all: lax prescription guidelines, overprescribing by willing physicians, and the addictive nature of opioids.
A CULTURE OF FEAR AND INTIMIDATION
Unfortunately, these purported causes proved erroneous at best or deliberately misrepresented at worst. And implementation of policies based on these causes led to a rise in suicide and clinical stigmatization among chronic pain and anxiety patients and patients with substance use dependencies.
