Parkersburg does seem to have the worst drug problem of any state (according to size) that I've ever seen. PKB police should run random drug tests at the Latrobe St Mission and check the parking lot at night if they want to find drugs.

The Prosecutor should request ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement)to check to determine if the good Doctor is a citizen and/or if he smuggled the drugs in from Mexico. That would be a federal offense with a long sentence and God willing debortation.

hydrocodone - isn't that much different than a high dose of Tylenol. I take it for back pain twice a day, trust me it doesn't do anything. this is why I stopped taking it. bakerkat - the story did not say anything about ppl dying - so, why bring up something that doesn't exist here?

I agree Guy - how many overdosed and died because of this guy? Those should all be murder charges. Doctors are supposed to help people. I hope after he spends his measly 6 years he loses his med. license forever in ALL states.

ve been saying for years. Why is there such a drug problem in WV? Because the punishment does not fit the crime regardless of the circumstances. Instead of punishment they demand counseling that usually leads to a diagnosis that they need treatment in leiu of conviction. Then if they get dosed with bipolar disorder-which in this area is easier than finding a one way street-they get a light sentence and are allowed to take even worse drugs than they were dealing with for their "disorder?"
