I am trying to get a law passed (Jaycie's Law)starting in South Carolina and hopefully going nationwide or even worldwidefor mandatory drug testing in Emergency Rooms forDOCUMENTED drug addicts before prescribing drugs, such as pain pills (narcotics)that could compromise their lives. The pain pill prescriptionproblem that we know exist has been declared an epidemic. Since we have alreadystarted a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program here in SC and many other states....We needtopass a law in the ER for mandatory drug testingfor documented drug addicts to go along with this PDMP. This law is specific and not intended for people with chronic pain that need these types of medications for quality life. With the PDMP being used and bringing education into our schools and Jaycie's Law, I feel it would be the start of helping put a stop to this deadly epidemic that we have here in the United States and all over the world. Enough is enough. We need this simple request to become a law so we as humans can help stop this epidemic that is growing rapidly.
I agree that the ER should have to drug test EVERYONE before prescribing them narcotics but especially those with a drug history.
