Interactive Map: Oxycodone usage by ZIP code
Does it hurt more to live in the suburbs?
One might think so, looking at Drug Enforcement Administration data, which shows suburban residents are prescribed up to twice as many pain pills per person than city residents.

Both painkillers are opiates, as is heroin, though heroin is illegal.
