I am very new to this whole idea of being "red flagged by the DEA if you take dr prescribed narcotics. I guess I'm really naive, & missed news articles on this topic, because I honestly had no idea that this could happen until I joined this forum. Boy, have I learned a lot, thank you all!
I was wondering how you know you are "red flagged", so I did some google searches on the subject, & while I didn't exactly find my answer, I did read some horror stories on other forums!! I also went on the DEA website, & there is a ton of info on there that makes for some very interesting reading. Laws regarding narcotics are listed state by state.
If you've got anxiety meds, I suggest you take them before you do this research, because after all that reading my anxiety level went through the roof
Mods, I hope it's ok to say DEA website since it's a government agency?Saying DEA website has nothing to do with it being a government agency. The rules are in place to review providing external links
