You are right Travis, but as Drs01 pointed out the other day, look at how many people have handicap placards and how many people receive disability payments nowadays. With today's electronic databases, it should be easy to track prescription drugs. Apparently alot of doctors are grossly over prescribing these medications and people today are in alot more pain for some unknown reason than they were just a few years ago.
