Hello!  Doctors in Florida bought 89 percent of all the Oxycodone sold in the country last year. There's current thinking that the illegal sale of prescription drugs, and Oxycodone in particular, boomed in Florida because of the absence of a widely used prescription drug monitoring system and lax state regulations

In a nutshell:
