Policymakers under pressure to pass legislation to address the continuing opioid crisis, and overzealous prosecutors seeking to crack down on inappropriate opioid prescribing sometimes overlook the needs of patients with legitimate pain conditions. In this rapidly changing landscape, it is important that pain practitioners are aware of recent trends in state legislation. By understanding what rules apply to their practice, they can be diligent in their practice of prescribing opioids and other controlled substances, thereby safeguarding appropriate patient access. Adopting such practices will also help to protect their patients from harm, and to shield themselves from criminal, civil, or administrative liability.
