New segments looks into the dangers of medication abuse, and those offering solutions.

Prescription medication abuse; It can creep up on anyone, and over the past several years, it has become America's leading drug problem.

From pill mills to prescription drugs being brought across the border, it seems it is easier than ever before for drug abusers to get their hands on prescription drugs. For many of them, they have valid prescriptions, meaning there's nothing anyone can do to stop their abuse. For others, they have found their selves being locked up behind bars, and this has led to overcrowding in almost every jail, detention center and prison found in the United States.

The "Leading Edge," which is hosted by Jimmy Johnson, will be featuring a segment that focuses solely on prescription drug abuse. The main purpose of the segment is to inform the public of the toll prescription drub abuse is taking on society as well as what we can do to help prevent it.

Please take a few moments out of your day to watch Jimmy Johnson on the Leading Edge and learn more about prescription drug abuse.
