Prescription Thugs is an incredibly powerful documentary speaking up about a very critical issue, prescription drug addiction. To some this may seem like a non-issue because it is totally legal and doctors are prescribing the medication, how could this possibly be a bad thing, well that is the wrong way of looking at it. The sheer number of people who die due to prescription drug addition is outrageous. It is a problem that needs very open lenses to find the solution. There are so many angles to this problem that it is a little nerve-racking. It is a must watch documentary that shows the true dangers of prescription drugs from a very personal angle.
