For great stock picks, sometimes you need to look beyond the business section of a newspaper, Jim Cramer said Tuesday on CNBC’s “ Mad Money .” “Sometimes, there will be a fabulous idea that’s hidden in plain sight and easy to spot, as long as you know how to connect the dots.”

According to the article, more than 54 percent of overdose deaths since 2008 have involved a prescription drug — that’s more than all other illegal drugs combined.
