Illegal Traffic in Legal Drugs Prescription drug abuse has become a scourge in Ohio, where the governor recently signed a bill aimed at shutting down the pill mills that supply addicts. Addiction is particularly acute in Southern Ohio, but it's a problem throughout the state. Chances are someone you know has a problem with painkillers. We'll find out what's being done by law enforcement agencies to combat the problem and learn how addicts can kick the habit, Tuesday at 9:00 on the Sound of Ideas.
