I wonder if he was over-prescribing in a malicious way. As in, was he trying to have a harmful effect on his patients?

If he was doing it intentionally he deserves it. We should be able to trust doctors

This guy should have known how much is too much. I'm sure he got money in it somehow, no doctor gives out a bucket of pain killers for free.

Yeah, it is tough to judge someone's intent.

even if he didn't do it intentionally he deserves to be charged, thats why its involuntary manslaughter. if you are a doctor you are directly responsible for the medication you prescribe, thats the way it is and the way it needs to be.

Shit. The fact that it wasn't just Paul Gray is pretty damning.

as shitty as it is to have a doctor tell you can take this amount of medication I feel like alarm bells should go off if the dosage is really high, but then again a doctor says its okay you automatically trust his judgment.

then again, Gray was a drug addict and this doctor gave him access to all kinds of pills and fueled his habit.
