Earlier this week, The Washington Post ran an important story on the under-treatment pain and law enforcement agencies' pogrom against doctors who prescribe opiates that is causing it (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A37015-2003Dec28.html).

Many of the same advocates who have succeeded in drawing attention to this problem are gathering from April 18-20 in Washington, DC, to call for Congressional hearings on the DEA war on doctors, pharmacists and pain patients. We hope that those of you who are able will attend and participate in "America's In Pain!" -- MARCH ON WASHINGTON -- "Silent No More!"
