Opioids are a recognized national problem. Only Missouri does not have a statewide prescription drug monitoring program to prevent people from illegally buying opioids from more than one pharmacy, or getting the same prescription from more than one doctor. St. Louis County set up a monitoring system and more than two thirds of Missouri residents are now under the program. The Ray County Commission is considering whether to join.
