Re: COMING TONIGHT: CDC calls prescription drug overdoses, an 'American Epidemic'

The problem with this epidemic is that Doctors are not being held accountable. When a patient can go to an out of state pain clinic and obtain, 180 oxycodone tablets every 30 days in addition to 180 methadone and 90 Xanax bars, and get these prescribed each month, then who is committing the criminal act here. Each of these pain clinic doctors should have to justify to someone why they are prescribing so much pain medicine to someone they cannot possibly monitor, even on a weekly basis.
