The Louisville Courier-Journal reveals that more drugs containing codeine were sold per person in Kentucky than in any other state; the series also reveals that the state is a hotbed of prescription-drug abuse, complete with pill-pushing doctors, drug-seeking patients and lax oversight and enforcement. Evidence of drug abuse was found in the Medicaid program, even though most irregularities are not investigated. One of the doctors profiled in the series became the subject of a criminal investigation, Oct. 30 - Nov. 1, 1994.
