DEA looking for comments on their proposed opiate production quotas

When/if you download the 20 page proposed regulations… pay particular attention to PAGE 4 of that *.PDF… it explains the “statistical parameters” that the DEA used to come up with the “ESTIMATED DIVERSION ” of particular controlled substances.  First of all the database was on only 24% of the population – from only 17 different states PDMP databases and some “numeric numbers – like MME’s above a certain MME/day – would be a indication of diversion. Everyone – but the DEA – knows that those MME conversion programs are CRAP .. all one has to do is look at the footnotes on this MME conversion program https://globalrph.com/medcalcs/opioid-pain-management-converter-advanced/ The DEA should be ashamed to even state their “diversion numbers ” as estimates…. a more appropriate label would be “GUESSTIMATE ”  While our population typically grows abt 1% +/- in 2010 USA pop was 309 million and 2020 pop was 331 million.  Opiate Rxing peaked in 2011-2012… so while our population grew some 7%… the DEA has reduced opiate production quotas by some 50%.. New chronic pain pts are created every day from accidents to surgeries with BAD OUTCOMES.

    • Well money, …and sometimes just keeping your job, is worth very far much more, in their minds, than other’s health..

  2. Why would they do this?

    • Because they are “law enforcement” and they follow the rules – when things has to be “public”…they published the proposed changes…. they have a open comment period…. then they implement the changes as they were first proposed. They have dotted their “i’s” and crossed their “t’s”… making it harder for someone to challenge how they did the changes.
