Prescription drug abuse and diversion has become a problem of epidemic proportion. In 16 states, drug related deaths now exceed deaths resulting from motor vehicle accidents; and an increasing number of those deaths are related to prescription drugs such as opioid analgesics (methadone, oxycodone, etc.). States are struggling to deal with the costs of prescription drug abuse and the law enforcement challenges with criminals who cross state lines on a regular basis to obtain drugs for abuse and diversion.
