The report, which was prepared by the University of Wisconsin Pain & Policy Studies Group, rated each state on a scale of A to F based on whether its pain laws and policies enhance or impede pain management.
States receiving an A grade included Kansas (my state!), Michigan, Virginia and Wisconsin. Georgia increased its score the most, rising from a D+ to a B. Forty four states received a grade of C or higher.
