There is an article in today's Tricities.com relevant to the pill epidemic here. Here is some interesting info:
“For the last two years, unintentional drug overdose is the number one cause of death in Tennessee over motor vehicle accidents, homicides or suicides,” Reagan said of the study results.“It really is a significant problem and the ages of these victims from overdose range from 30 to 60 with the peak range from ages 40 to 49.”
I thought this was interesting since pills are frequently discussed here in many topics pertaining to pill hoes, thieves, dealers, divorce, etc.
Here is the mobile link:

Thanks for sharing the link and story. It is a terrible epidemic that has been spreading in our area for quite some time yet it is just now getting that much attention?

Yes it's an epidemic and pills of all kinds can readily be available anywhere you look. Seriously people! Parents are selling or obtaining pills for others right in their own homes IN FRONT OF THEIR OWN CHILDREN! Let alone any other children that might be visiting. If America, don't wake up,it's over.

The problem with the pill epidemic is that this is really the first easy to obtain, legally prescribed, and highly addictive recreational drug that has been around. Sure there were "greenies" back in the day but not to the extent that this is being abused. Short of eliminating the medicine I don't know of a way to curb this abuse. Pill counts and drug tests can be easily skirted. It really is scary how out of hand it has gotten. And how quickly. These pills have been around for a long time but just in the last 10-15 years have they become such a problem.
