    Most people might be surprised to learn that many people live and work with chronic pain. This pain necesitates the taking of medications, that most people - who have NO understanding of the mechanisms of pain, would react negatively to - making an addumption that they were effectively "stoned". Chronic pain & illness are Disabilities for the purposes of our Anti Discriminaton framework. Before we assume people are adversly effected by prescription medication (which has a very different effect when taken for recreation use), we should seek professional advice from a Physical Medicine or Injury Management professional.
