Pain doctor gets 25 years for helping people

Could have been worse — prosecutors asked for life — but this is essentially a life sentence. At TalkLeft.

Virginia medical doctor William Hurwitz was sentenced to 25 years in a federal prison today for over-prescribing pain medication.

It’s time to get federal police out of the business of deciding our medical treatment. States and the medical community should handle this, not national law enforcement.
Here’s hoping that Raich v. Ashcroft can be a step in that direction.
