    Point papers are a long-standing tradition in military and government policy making circles.  Unlike most medical journal papers, they are formatted with a minimum of verbiage to summarize an issue for decision making.   The authors write in that tradition, adding references for key points.  We speak on behalf of millions of people in pain and their healthcare providers, who have been predictably and unnecessarily harmed by the 2016 CDC Guidelines on prescription of opioids to adults with chronic non-cancer pain.
