Ballot measure targets doctors overprescribing pain meds
Sacramento Business Journal

California’s low medical malpractice cap is the hot item in a proposed ballot initiative filed Thursday, but the measure also seeks to stop physician drug abuse and keep doctors from over-prescribing pain medications. Dubbed the Troy and Alana Pack Patient Safety Act, the measure seeks to address the reasons for a family tragedy caused when a drugged driver who doctor-shopped for painkillers killed the two children on a roadside nine years ago.
