LAS VEGAS - Addiction to painkillers is spreading and leading to other problems - from doctor shopping to pharmacy robberies to overdose deaths.

During the last 10 years in Nevada, per capita sales of Oxycodone surged 366%. Hydrocodone sales rose 233%. Dr. Ghertner says too many doctors are over-prescribing these drugs. The physician often doesn't consider an exit strategy to get the patient off these powerful pills. Nevada has safeguards in place, including a prescription drug monitoring program to keep track of which prescriptions patients are filling at the pharmacy.

LAS VEGAS -- The use of powerful mood-altering drugs for mental health treatment is on the rise among kids in the care of Nevada's child welfare system. It's a trend the I-Team first examined back in 2009.

Despite assurances from both state and local officials progress has been painfully and perhaps dangerously slow. The data the I-Team received from both the state and the county is such a mess it's hard to say exactly how much the use of psychotropic medications among kids in care has increased. What is clear is that nearly 30 percent of kids in the system are taking at least one of these medications and the state confirms an increase last year. At the same time both agencies were supposed to be fixing the problem.

The state child welfare budget is not among the hardest hit this legislative session but spending cuts to the agencies that service children and families could have long term consequences.

By the time a child is ready for adoption, he or she will have touched virtually every part of the child welfare system from the abuse or neglect investigation that removed him or her, to the foster placement or placements that temporarily housed him or her, to the court proceedings that terminated the mom and dad's parental rights. If any part of that system slows, an abused child spends more time within it instead of with an adopted family.

ADAMS COUNTY - An Adams County Judge says the county's Human Services are to blame for the death of 22-month-old Michael Harris, who died February of 2011 from injuries inflicted by his mother's boyfriend.

Judge Chris Melonakis said, "[Adams County Human Services] are directly responsible for the death of the child. Frankly somebody should be taking them in front of the grand jury." Judge Melonakis added, "Michael Harris never had a chance in life. As a system, we had an obligation to give him a chance in life. It's appalling the level of neglect from the state. It transcends the level of human decency."

Former Australian of the Year Rosie Batty is looking to make domestic violence an election issue by fronting a campaign to overhaul the family law system.

Among the changes being sought by advocates is a ban on alleged domestic violence perpetrators cross-examining their victims in court and for courts to consider any family violence history when determining how to divide property in a divorce settlement.

Syracuse - DeWitt Police have arrested a woman who they say kept her 3-year-old son locked in his room without supervision for up to 22 hours a day in unsanitary conditions.

They say when the child was found, his bed, floor, and walls were covered in fecal matter and urine, while the child was found unsanitary and hungry. The child was removed from the home and police charged Heather Lacey, 25, of 212 E. James St., Syracuse, with unlawful imprisonment in the second degree and endangering the welfare of a child.

As makeshift "protests" go, the turnout at the state Capitol wasn't too bad considering it was a Friday afternoon and the temperature in the mid-20's.

I knew the turnout wasn't going to be fantastic though when I was able to find a parking spot just a couple of blocks from Capitol (here's a pic taken from where I parked... the "tea party" was on the other side of the building).
