    With opioid abuse surging, expert panel recommends drug screening for all U.S. adults

    These are interesting times. Are they not?

    Itís time for doctors to start asking every patient, every time: Have you engaged in any illicit drug use?

    Thatís the new advice from a panel of public health experts who examined whether a primary care physicianís time is well spent ó and whether patientsí interests are served ó by routine screening for drug abuse.
    A draft report issued Tuesday by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends that all U.S. adults be screened for illicit drug use as long as their doctors can do so accurately and, when abuse is detected, offer their patients effective treatment or refer them to someone who can.

    lmao oh boy that's good.. "No doc I only use the stuff with my name on it.. CAN I GET MORE PLEASE?!" wait wait wait isn't there a fucking clean needle program in goddamn San Fran? Oop yep there it is. https://sf.curbed.com/2018/5/9/17336...nge-numbers-sf

    Who's going to pay for this massive abuse of privacy? How much of a fucking backlog will that create? Hospitals are busy enough as it is, now we're going to test fucking Everyone? Are they nuts? That's a logistical nightmare! OH and I can see it now.. promoting a 24 hour or less turn around time because we "care" about people and stamping out crime. fffffffucking bullshit. Yes lets funnel thousands of samples a day through an already overworked system and oh lol shit looks like Granny Smith isn't on crack after all but we don't know who we mixed up the sample with because of the sheer number of cups that come through. Oh yeah btw urine and blood expire inside of 5 days if I remember right. Who's going to review all these cases? Are they going to prosecute every one who pings back positive for illegal use? What about false positives?

    How about this? How about we start the screening with "Are you a citizen or are in the US legally? Can you provide proof?" OHH NOOO THATS OUTRAGEOUS! lJSA:LKSJFD:LFKDj yeah. I didn't think so. Fuck these idiots. Seriously.

    The doctor asks you if you use illegal drugs. If you are honest and say "sure I do, doesn't everone?" you can expect to return to find your home with windows and doors broken out, lots of black Blazers parked around your house, all your firearms thrown in a pile on the front lawn next to the body of your champion dog.

    And George Orwell is heard laughing all the way from heaven.

    Should be mandatory for politicians to take a drug test. But it would not mean anything since they don't have to follow the law.

    Could do a hair sample for drug use. Drug test everyone so the government knows the health problems of everyone so you can just take a pill and die like Obama said. If you are too old or have the wrong disease the death panel will take care of you. Maybe everyone could give a DNA sample too.

    Needle exchange is nationwide.

    I never had the gun ownership question when I went to the doctor. My mom told me recently she saw that question when she went to the doctor. The answer choices were yes, no, and do not want to answer.

    I worked at a brake shop in grand prairie in my 20s, and about my 3rd day at work, the boss called me into the office and told me I had to take a drug test. I said OK and he told me to roll a blunt because his crew didn t smoke homegrown
