Likewise - last year had a kidney stone.  Painful - had an outpatient procedure to remove it.  Post-op did fine.  They gave me a script for 20 Percs at discharge.  I asked why - response was well, you might have some pain later on.

Might? Other thing was how cheap they were with my insurance (less than $3 to fill the script). 

BTW, didn't have enough discomfort to need it

I still find it hard to believe, regardless of any misinformation, that a reasonably intelligent person did not link narcotic use and addiction.

In my last job I saw the impact daily- all walks of life.  Also saw the persistent drug seeking in the ER, to the point where doctors simply discharged the person after triage.  Saw where people in rehab for heroin/opiates came in with dirty tox screens for cocaine and/or other substances.

Personally, I put a lot of blame on the medical sources who prescribe all this stuff without checking OARRS (not sure if other states have a similar program).

I think a local weather guy had issues with Dilaudid some time back, IIRC.  I've seen where people have left the ER AMA after being denied the stuff

didn't they have 5 a couple of years back?  They released Adams and Allen (I think) and didn't Grant spend part of a season there?
