Kentucky Suing Purdue
The state of Kentucky is suing the manufacturer of Oxycontin for expenses related to addiction treatment; the company has already admitted to misrepresenting the addictive qualities of the drug. NPR's Morning Edition had a commentary from a Kentucky native describing what it was like returning to the state after four years of college and finding many of her childhood friends addicted. It's worth a listen.
