The Drug Enforcement Administration maintains a database that tracks the path of every single pain pill sold in the United States. The records show extreme disparities between the number of pills distributed per person in each county. In towns and counties inundated with pills, death rates soared. Rural communities in West Virginia, Kentucky and Virginia were some of the hardest hit, with the highest rates of death per capita.
