I've been unable even to get a codeine cough syrup when I had a cough bad enough to prevent me from sleeping. And no, the stuff they gave me instead didn't work; and I've taken codeine before with no problems (and no temptation, on my part, to keep taking it after the need was gone; though I now have a pretty severe temptation to hang on to it if I did legitimately come by some, in case the cough situation comes up again.)

That's pretty minor, compared to people with chronic severe pain. But it seems odd when other people are describing other opoids being handed out like candy.
