Long wait for action in death of their son

There are 12 comments on the Baltimore Sun story from Jul 19, 2008, titled Long wait for action in death of their son. In it, Baltimore Sun reports that:

Three years after their teenage son, Michael, died from taking a prescription painkiller, George and Alicia Osgood are still waiting for the outcome of a state investigation into his death.

The couple wants the Maryland Board of Physicians to discipline the doctor who prescribed the strongest dose on the market of the drug, OxyContin, to treat the 19-year-old's sore throat.

'I can't believe that the Board of Physicians is not doing anything about it,' said George Osgood, a civil engineer who lives in Upper Marlboro. 'It never seems to get resolved.'

I heard of codeine for strep throat because it is so painful,but oxycontin for a teenager that probably never had tolerence to pain medication is the reason for death.This is an outrage.I am shocked!God Bless his parents.
