CNN story on CVS in Florida

Just saw this report on CNN. CVS has sent out letters to certain doctors in Florida saying they will not fill prescriptions for certain painkillers (oxycodone was one mentioned) written by these doctors. The theory was that CVS used their records to pick out certain docs who they thought were writing too many scripts for these drugs.

Also, there were new statistics put out by the CDC (I think) about a month ago that 15,000 people died last year from prescription painkillers, which exceeded deaths from heroin and cocaine.
