Description

A poorly maintained medical assistance program helped contribute to the abuse of oxycontin in Minnesota. The state only monitors drugs paid for through the state's medical assistance program. Abusers are getting the drug through the state, selling it on the street for ten times as much, and then purchasing prescriptions of the drug for themselves. Oxycontin is considered the "#2 drug problem" in Minnesota other than meth.
