Florida pill mill problems spreading to other states

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - A pill mill crackdown across South Florida is forcing manufacturers and sellers to "spread their wings".

Clinics are moving to states, such as Georgia, where, experts say, there are now more than 150.

"It's not Florida's fault that the increased activity has moved to Georgia," said Dave Aronberg, former state drug czar. "It's Georgia's fault that they've delayed the implementation of the prescription drug database."

Georgia is in the process of creating a drug database similar to the one Florida has in place. The state expects it to go online in 2013.
