Painkiller conference at Cato

In the Boston Herald:

“The war on drugs has become a war on sick people and doctors are caught in the cross fire,” said Harvard-trained Dr. Frank Fisher, a California pain doctor who was slapped with drug and murder charges in 1999 that were later dropped.

Fisher is among a group of experts meeting today at a Washington, D.C., conference to discuss the effects of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s “war on prescription painkillers.”

The government’s campaign has doctors “scared to death” to prescribe certain painkillers and patients who need them can’t find physicians to treat them, said Radley Balko, a policy analyst at the Cato Institute, host of the conference.

Go get ’em, Radley!
