How Congress moves one small step at a time to control opiates

OxyContin and Beyond: Examining the Role of the Food and Drug Administration and the Drug Enforcement Agency in Regulating Prescription Painkillers.

This is a 131 page report on a Congressional hearing TWELVE YEARS ago on how they were going to deal with the perception of increased abuse of opiates by certain segments of our population.

IMO.. this also clearly demonstrates how Congress moves like a tortoise.. one small step at a time… until they get accomplished their goals.. while everyone else is busy living their life and don’t see it coming ?
