Description

CBS News reports on the controversy surrounding miracle/menace drug OxyContin. With the number of prescriptions skyrocketing, the number of addicts and overdoses has been too. Many rural areas have been severely affected, leading to drastic increases in robberies and other OxyContin-related crimes. Opponents blame the pharmaceutical company's heavy marketing campaign; supporters say it's still a miracle drug when it comes to controlling pain.
