From the Charleston Gazette-Mail
In six years, drug wholesalers showered the state with 780 million hydrocodone and oxycodone pills, while 1,728 West Virginians fatally overdosed on those two painkillers, a Sunday Gazette-Mail investigation found
The unfettered shipments amount to 433 pain pills for every man, woman and child in West Virginia.

In those same six years, pot killed zero people. Pot smokers were fined, smokers and dealers were sent to jail while pharmaceutical companies and their executives made millions.
American Corrupitalism at its best.
