I was looking at this website and while I do not want to discourage anyone from making comments to this… but..  everyone needs to read this and see who you are making comments to—> HHS  Health and Human Services.

When is the last time – or first time – that someone from HHS came in and raided a prescriber’s office and shut the practice down, walked off with all the office computers and other records ?

When is the last time – or the first time – have you seen HHS make the determination that a prescriber’s practice is a “pill mill” and making the determination that the prescriber is prescribing controlled substance in excess of what is considered  “outside of best practices and standard of care ” and declares that the prescriber is functioning as a “pill mill” and facilitating controlled substances to be diverted to “the street”


So apparently, there is going to be NO ONE FROM THE DEA present at this meeting or reading any submitted comments…and that would be BECAUSE ?  Could it be that the DEA has no interest in changing their current policies and procedures and continue to raid prescribers’ offices and using the Civil Asset Forfeiture Act to confiscate all their assets?   Yes the Supreme Court has been making some changes to that act and other states have shown a interest in changing the law. People who have had their assets confiscated… may at some point in the future may be their assets back but what if the DOJ has liquidated the hard assets… at a FIRE SALE… the person may get back what the DOJ got in cash for their seized assets.
