Here we go again. Why should everyone else suffer because a minority of people react badly to a drug? Most of the time it's because these people don't read the dosing instructions, have no common sense, or are trying to get a buzz. So let them find something else that works for them, and let us use what works for us!
That's bad enough, but this is even worse: "Yesterday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and city officials unveiled a new initiative to limit supplies of prescription painkillers in the city’s emergency rooms as a way to combat what they described as a growing addiction problem in the region." So, because of addicts, people who genuinely need pain meds will have to go without.
Something is very wrong here.
