A physician in Walla Walla is no longer allowed to prescribe pain pills after his patient died. An investigation by the Medical Commission is turning up highly questionable behavior.

But an investigation is revealing how frequently the doctor prescribed dangerous, highly-addictive opiates without seeing patients, without making them undergo urine tests, and without even checking to see if his dosages were appropriate for symptoms.

Basically, if people wanted opiates, it appears he gave it to them. One family from Clarkston, Idaho, (200 miles away) was able to get pills even though their records indicate a pattern of behaviors exhibited by addicts.
