CVS Blacklisting Some Irresponsible doctors in Florida

In an interesting development, CVS is taking action against doctors that irresponsibly prescribe narcotic painkillers.  The company has sent letters to a collection of Florida doctors indicating that it will no longer fill prescriptions for drugs like OxyContin.

Purdue Pharma irresponsibly marketed the drug and through misdiagnosis and unethical prescribing many doctors unleashed the drug on patients who were utterly unprepared for the  habit forming nature of the drug.  Compounding this was recreational use by people (especially young adults) who mistakenly perceived the drug as less sinister than illegal street drugs.  The instance of addiction and overdose overwhelmed many families.
