I live in a rather horrible amount of pain. To treat this pain, my doctor prescribed to me, most recently, Duragesic 50mcg/hr patches and Percocet(Oxycodone/Acetaminophen) 10/325, which I take four times a day, as needed. On top of this, I also take Lyrica(for the pain) and some maintenance medication(for high blood pressure and thyroid issues). I have to walk with a cane and I am usually in pain most of the day, but I am able to function and take care of myself. I also, rather recently, applied for my Georgia Weapon License(or whatever it is called now). I know that the medication I am taking might, to those with no experience, believe that what I am taking is "a lot" of medication, but I have a leg that would disagree with you. I am fully capable of safely operating a motor vehicle, though I am not able to work(I cannot sit or stand for very long). I was working on my bachelors degree, but the pain has gotten worse and that venture has been put on hold. I just worry about what could happen if an over jealous officer crosses paths with me and causes me grief for using these medications and being in possession of a firearm. I am not addicted to any of the opioids that I use; I only use the as prescribed and as such, I am never "under the influence" of said medication. I do not drink, and I do not exceed the doses that my doctor set, but I just worry about the possibility of an officer getting the wrong idea and either trying to arrest me for possession of a weapon while in the possession of drugs, or something far worse. Should I worry? Since there is nothing I can do about my leg, am I in danger of being precluded from carrying a firearm and/or obtaining a permit to carry a firearm? I have never been treated for drug addiction/abuse. As a matter of fact, I have never use a Schedule I drug(marijuana, heroine, methamphetamine, etc), nor have I had to use other Schedule II or III medications for extended periods of time(aside from random accidents that resulted in ER visits ). After brushing up on the current laws, in regards to carrying a firearm and medical use of drugs, I have not found anything that would preclude me. I just know that, even though I believe I know everything, I know that I do not. If anyone could give me some advice/information, that would be great. Thank you for your time. *EDIT* Weird, I thought I had posted prior to this, but I guess I have not. I signed up in 2008, but I have kept quite since then. So, hello everyone! Sorry for being a little .
