    I'm not an expert in this shit ...but if people are in great pain, yes, of course legalize it.

    Well, I didn't say they were. BUT if a person is in that kind of pain, and or have cancer and dying.....etc.....the doctors will write scripts for pain meds.

    It is legal. I think they mean reduce regulations on it to make it available without prescription.

    What if they can afford the medicine but cannot afford to hire a doctor?

    Since the 1950's we have had socialized healthcare where you go sit at the hospital and get your prescription. Sure they'll try to bill ya but to what end? It was effectively free for a potential ding on your credit.

    Sounds great if all you need is a few antibiotics because you stepped on a nail, but anyone with ongoing medical needs couldn't do that. A diabetic who needs insulin couldn't just stop by and pick up another supply each month.

    Can these folks not afford ANY pain pills? back a decade ago when I'd slum with the gals they'd get pills from the ER when their legit doctor prescribed pills ran out early.

    But yeah, if you are a total homeless bum who can't do the welfare paperwork it is gonna suck.

    Otherwise you play a hospital hopping game.
