    I work in the retail industry in which my location has a pharmacy within the establishment. I catch those that commit theft and attempt fraud scams within this place. I am pretty new to this business and it seems I am dealing with more prescription fraud incidents than I am with actual merchandise theft at this point. (Oxycontin and perks are the most common)

    Here's an idea.... abolish prescription pads so people can't steal them anymore and mandate into law that ALL doctors must NOT use pads and must enter in the scripts ONLY into a computer system and get rid of those old school script pads. If that happens then if someone shady produces a hand written script they will automatically know it's fake! All these people do is steal the pads then they are off and running according to the last person I caught!! Maybe our kids wouldn't be hooked on em in record numbers anymore! Just a thought!

      Computers never get hacked of course.

    Little harder to hack into a good and secured computer than to simply walk into a Dr.'s office and swipe a pad.

      But it'll be done, and on a much wider scale than is happening now.

      Good work you are doing. Keep it up!

      Prescription through email can work very well.
      For that, it will need a doctor to registered himself with pharmacy with his email address. One more safer way is the doctor should give a verification code to patient and he should take it to pharmacy and the pharmacist would verify the code which he will receive from the doctor through email with same code given to the patient. i hope you will find it useful..

    It would be easier if the Government would just stay out of our lives.  What we ingest in to the human being that is us is no business of anyone or any entity.

    The criminilization of drugs is done just to keep our prisons overflowing with slaves that can handle slave labor.

    The war on drugs is a war on the People.

    Since the 1980's drug use has increased regardless of the billions of dollars spent to stop them.  It will also take away almost all criminal activity and violence occuring due to the illegal distribution of drugs.

    Legalize!  So non-violent citizens do not have to spend part of their lives in correctional facilities for nothing more then self- medicating!
