And just so you know, I very much doubt you could continue your work with the amount of sleep I get, being less than 110 lbs, and being constantly anxious/in a horrible mood. I didn't want this to turn into the whole "I'm in pain, riddled with anxiety, depression, blah blah blah" thing but I'm just trying to get my point across.
It was much more manageable before the injury, and please remember, I CHOSE to get off pain meds, I thought I could handle it, my doctor advised me against it, he was right and I was wrong.

It's a felony in most states. There's your answer. Although officers have the ability to exercise discretion involving some arrests when it comes to mitigating circumstances, it rarely (if ever) happens involving drug-related felonies. I'm not risking my job over someone else's mistake(s).

Thanks for all the suggestions, I am currently looking for a new doctor but it can get pretty expensive when you don't have very good insurance. As for the guy with them, he gets them next to nothing, and is well aware of the situation, so theres not really an issue with money is you're taking a modest amount. Opiates make me sick to my stomache, they have very little abuse potential for me. As to how he can find a doctor and I cannot, he has had the doctor for a long time. The reason I can't see my original doctor is because after I stopped taking painkillers, and gave a shot trying to manage the pain without them, he ended his practice. No, I have not been marked as a junkie. Ive spent quite a bit of money on doctor visits, and no results. I'm not rich here, and I've worked hard for my money (70 hour weeks 100 bucks a day) before my injury. Why not look into the problem yourself? Call a pain management clinic, tell them you deal with stenosis, see what they tell you. As for the original question, I was more wondering if someone helped ME acquire something, what kind of trouble they were looking at. I got my answer on that, thanks. As for not wanting to risk your job, that's completely understandable, and I have no idea why I didn't think of that as a possibility. If I get caught, I'll just keep quiet and tell the judge my sob story. I'm in an unfortunate situation here, I'm not a bad person. I've greatly helped my community in the past, in ways that should more than make up for any loss of tax dollars for a blood test in court.
If I sat down with a cop and talked to him 1 on 1 about it, could he arrest me for admitting guilt? Would you? I feel I need help dealing with his situation before I get in trouble.

There are a lot of services out there for drug addiction or pain management. A police officer is not one of them. If you sit down with a cop, what do you want from him? "Get out of jail free" cards don't exist. If you admit to a crime, you are likely to be arrested/charged. As has already been stated here, the "I'm in a lot of pain" card gets thrown down EVERY time. I'm not saying it isn't always legitimate, its just not an acceptable defense.
You need to go to rehab or back to a doctor or pain management clinic that can help you. What you are doing is illegal and it can result in your arrest. What your friend is doing is illegal and can result in his arrest.
