BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Medicaid patients are selling prescription drugs to drug dealers. So far 33 people have been charged in a large-scale investigation, police said. "For the first time, the Buffalo investigators devoted the kinds of resources normally aimed at street drugs like heroin or crack - wiretaps, buys, surveillance and cross-agency cooperation to trace the drugs from pharmacy to street," the Huffington Post said. "Often at no charge, the patients see a doctor, or several doctors, and come away with prescriptions for narcotic OxyContin and other pills they then sell to a dealer for as much as $1,000," MSNBC said.
