MAPS IN THE NEWS:
As of 2012, the most recent year for which data have been released, 12 U.S. states had more opioid prescriptions than people: Alabama, Tennessee, West Virginia, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Indiana, Michigan, South Carolina, and Ohio. (And all 12 states voted the same way in the 2016 presidential election.) This map, complied from CDC data by PBS's Frontline, shows the number of opioid prescriptions per 100 adults. (The darker the green the higher the ratio.) www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/article/how-bad-is-the-opioid-epidemic/
