Deaths in Florida from oxycodone, other pain killers keep climbing

Data released Monday shows there were 2,710 deaths in Florida last year caused by prescription drugs, compared with 2,488 in 2009. Oxycodone was the biggest killer, causing 1,516 deaths, compared with 1,185 in 2009. Once again, prescription drugs continued to outpace illegal drugs as a cause of death last year. In fact, there were nearly three times as many deaths in Florida last year attributed to oxycodone as were attributed to booger sugar.
The Medical Examiner’s District covering Pinellas and Pasco counties led the state in all six of the leading prescription drug killers: oxycodone, alprazolam (Xanax), methadone, hydrocodone (Vicodin) and diazepam (Valium).

The medical examiner added, “there weren’t any deaths from overuse of marijuana.”
