The murder charge is waaaay over the top. Before you criticize me. READ THESE STATISTICS sales, and substance abuse treatment admissions related to OPR increased in parallel (Figure 2). The overdose death rate in 2008 was nearly four times the rate in 1999. Sales of OPR in 2010 were four times those in 1999." Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "Vital Signs: Overdoses of Prescription Opioid Pain Relievers — United States, 1999–2008," Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (Atlanta, GA: 2011), Vol. 60, No. 43, p. 1488. http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/pdf/wk/mm6043.pdf (2008 - causes of death - prescription drug overdose) "In 2008, a total of 36,450 deaths were attributed to drug overdose, a rate of 11.9 per 100,000 population (Table 1), among which a drug was specified in 27,153 (74.5%) deaths. One or more prescription drugs were involved in 20,044 (73.8%) of the 27,153 deaths, and OPR were involved in 14,800 (73.8%) of the 20,044 prescription drug overdose deaths." Soif he is guilty of 2nd degree murder then every person involved from the FDA approving these drugs to the very retailer CVS, Walmart etc!

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. He was a well liked kid that had a big heart and big goals. He had the ability to do so much with his life. This is very sad...
