Prescription Drug Abuse Is Alarming

A look at autopsies in that state found that the rate of deaths caused by prescription drugs was three times the rate of deaths caused by all illegal drugs combined. According to the Food and Drug Administration, seven million Americans are abusing prescription drugs; an eight percent increase in six years. Looking at it another way, it’s more than the total abuse of heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, and inhalants combined.
