Summary A team physician at the University of Washington was accused of dispensing drugs in the form of painkillers and other steroids which were mainly muscle relaxants. All these drugs were given to the student athletes without any valid prescriptions and often without any physical examination as well. Once this came out in the open the state suspended the doctor's licence.
