The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has proposed a rule that would require patients to be seen in person for a narcotics prescription - a problem for those who are too ill and plan to use them for medically assisted suicide. The DEA has received over 35,000 letters in response, begging the rule be revised to consider hospice patients. If still passed, new requirements would take effect in November.
