Doctor Convicted for trafficking Oxycodone (OxyContin)

Fort Pierce, Florida - Dr. Asuncion Luyao is convicted of trafficking oxycodone, racketeering and manslaughter in the death of a patient. The physician's license was suspended after her arrest a year ago, and she could spend the rest of her life in prison. The upcoming sentencing is in April.
Since the arrest last year, local Florida street prices for OxyCOntin have tripled in price.
The problem continues to grow, and the need is greater for education, prevention and drug rehab centers for those addicted to the powerful pain-killer drug which can easily be abused.
