Doctor's Arrested for Sales as Prescription Drug Deaths Skyrocket

October 5, 2015

As a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal prescription drug deaths have surpassed heroin and cocaine, doctor's are being outed for their role in the sudden increase.

Prescription narcotics are being handed out almost like candy by doctors – some of whom are genuinely interested in patient care – others who run so-called “pill mills,” where narcotic prescriptions are traded for cash to feed addictions. The CDC study found that enough narcotics are prescribed every year to medicate each and every adult in America every day for a month.

Queens, New York doctor Stan Li found himself caught in the tirade when he was arrested and accused of selling prescription drugs to dealers and addicts for cash. Reports claim that at-least ten of his patients died of overdoses.
