Sale of oxycodone and the number of pill mills in Florida is on the decline. The Drug Enforcement Agency estimates that purchases of oxycodone have dropped 20 %. This decline can be attributed to legislation that banned pain clinics and doctors from selling certain drugs along with increased penalties for those who overprescribe. This has results in a shortage in supply which is forcing the street price up to $80 per pill. While this article from the Tampa Bay Times states there is progress in street sales, this article from Bay News 9 states the opposite. According to Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, sales are still soaring with the price of pills remaining at $17 a pill.
