Though the state of California fills an estimated 34 million prescriptions annually, in the U.S. nearly 25 million doses are stolen each year, primarily painkillers such as OxyContin and Vicodin, according to this report from NBC Los Angeles. In reaction to the increase in robberies, some pharmacies across the nation no longer carry OxyContin and other addictive drugs, reports WMBF News.
