Prescription Drug Abuse Crackdown

Prescription Drug Abuse Crackdown

As this blog has noted several times, there has been a rampant increase in prescription fraud. Related to this, there has been a concerted by law enforcment and prosecutors throughout the country to ramp up efforts in trying to fight this crime.

Recently, in Florida twenty-two people were arrested in a concerted effort to shut down so-called "pill mill" pain clinics. There are prescription forgery rings throughout the country and illegal online pharmacies that are involved in the illegal distribution of prescription drugs.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has began a targeted and aggressive enforcement. The DEA stated that the abuse of prescription pills, such as oxycodone and methadone, is the fastest-growing drug problem in the country.
