    What's your point here? The original poster asked if Tramadol is so dangerous that it needs to be a controlled substance. My post took the position that it isn't, and that the DEA has classified it as a controlled substance because the DEA is in the business of controlling any substance that it can get away with controlling. The agency has a vested interest in classifying any substance that it can as a dangerous drug and a controlled substance. The DEA should not be classifying substances, and, further, should be eliminated -- as it has proven to be essentially useless in decreasing the flow of illegal drugs into and out of this country, essentially useless in decreasing the rate of usage among US inhabitants, essentially useless in decreasing the power of drug cartels, and has evolved to exist mainly for the benefit of DEA officials and agents, and the drug cartels, who profit from the continued criminalization of drug usage.
