why doesn't the law make the drug makers buy back all the illegally obtained drugs .the drug company's are making billions of dollars off of it ,and the drugs are destroyed .then take the money and pay some government bills with it .same with the drugs that get turned in to be disposed of ,medicare is paying for this ,so why should the drug company get rich off the back of tax payers.it must be nice to be able to just pump out your product and not have to worry about if its going to be bought or not .
great idea

What kills me is that in your story you say "STOPPED". Sorry to inform you but this kind of ring is far from stopped. There are way more then just the two of them with their so called rings doing this. It is much easier to go to FL and get a prescription and come back here and sell than it is to get employment. And not saying that as an excuse for these criminals either! Thats all you hear about anymore is pain pills! Hell you can go to the ER and say you have back pain and walk out with a script of vicodin????

If Forsythe and Hughes are convicted on all charges, they each face a maximum punishment of 20-years behind bars, Kocot reported.....This is Franklin County so I'm guessing they will be let go with probation and a pinky promise not to be a bad guy anymore.

Its not just Florida. Tennessee, Arizona, Georgia and a few other states. Realistically you aren't going to stop it. Unless you do your homework better. Better screening of Physicians and Pharmacies. But that would make too much sense, therefore it's not gonna work. Or OOO OOO OOO maybe hold the drug maker more responsible for creating the dependance on these addictive medications.

Unfortunately they haven't stopped anything, except these two. I can name 10 people right off the top of my head that drives to Flordia at least once a month, sometimes twice, to get these drugs. Doesn't do any good to call though, nobody does anything. I'm sure there are already two people that have stepped in to fill these guys' shoes, and were very happy to do it.

You have no clue to just how much money these dudes were making of these pills and furthermore the countless people that they sold their pills to have become addicts or were already there. Ten- thousand dollars my ****. Some of those oxy's sell for twenty to thirty dollars a pill! Just for the record the war on drugs started with Nancy Reagan but she was to late, drugs were already out of control. The war on drugs will never be won by the government.
on the streets the pills go for 100 or more a pill tell me how can some afford 5 r 6 pills at a time when they work for mc donals hahaha
