DRUG TRAFFIC AS A NON-PROFIT ENTERPRISE?
A Washington Post article headline "Pain doctor is guilty of drug trafficking" appeared April 28, 2007. It reports on the outcome of the second trial of Dr. William Hurwitz. One would hardly guess from the headline that Dr. Hurwtiz was never accused of profiting from the prescriptions he wrote. Traffickers may "come in all shapes and sizes" as US Attroney Rosenberg is quoted as saying. But a drug trafficker whom prosecuters acknowledge never made a penny from the trade defies imagination!
