West Virginia, Home of the Most Medicated?

WV ON DRUGS

OK, so we have one of the lowest Crime Rates, but one of the highest prisoner per capita rates. One of the highest unemployment and poverty rates, one of the worst systems in place for the mentally ill, but we’re one of the highest in prescription meds. Yet, when a pharmaceutical company finally gets SUED, a heap of the money goes to the STATE POLICE. Our jails are full of “drug offenders”, nearly 90%. Our tourist attractions are either closing or being sold to foreigners and our state is happily being raped by oil and gas and coal companies which take the money out of state. There is something really out of whack here!
