While Madison is discussing how to solve the opioid epidemic in Wisconsin…from both prescription and illegal forms of the drug…watching TV in a Chicago hotel Sunday night…I was bombarded with ads for drugs to solve Opioid Induced Constipation. The use of opioid painkillers is so endemic and long term that we have a new side effect that requires another drug to ‘cure’?

If this isn’t another indication that we need a coherent policy on drugs and drug abuse, I don’t know what is.
