Louisiana taking aim at doctor shopping

New Orleans Times-Picayune, March 16, 2009
Louisiana law enforcement authorities hope a new, statewide prescription drug monitoring program will curtail the practice of doctor shopping by drug addicts hoping to score narcotics. They also hope to ultimately reduce the number of people who die of accidental prescription drug overdoses. Under the program, prescriptions are entered into a database that can be accessed by prescribers, dispensers and, in some cases, law enforcement agencies.
