South Florida pill mills targeted at drug abuse summit - South Florida Sun-Sentinel.com
After listening to legislators, lawmen and physicians talk Monday about the difficulties of policing "pill mills," a mother shared the horror of burying her son after an overdose.
Richard Perry Jr. died at age 21 after struggling with an addiction to prescription drugs.
"The tears just flowed covering it," Karen Perry said about hugging her son's casket seven years ago. "I wanted so desperately to see and touch my son one more time. … There's nothing that we would not have done to save our son."
