I saw this on my local news the other day so no link.
So anyway, this guy who's brother had died of an opiate overdose spent $70,000 of his own money to develope the smart pill bottle for opiates. The cap will only dispence the correct number of pills at the correct time. And if you try to break it open it alerts the pharmacy and law enforcement (what the h*ll?). In the future he plans on adding fingerprint recognition as well.
I'm sorry but if my herniated disk hurts worse on some days than others, and I decide to take two pills instead of the one I'm prescribed it's my own business.

The drug dealer down the street has prescription opiates in blister packs. If you want, he can supply them in little plastic bags.
If the customer can't open his smart bottle by the time he needs his fix, he will find a way to get it another way.

You think it's a good idea for the cops to kick in your door because the pain is so bad you may need another pill?

Not everyone's pain is the same.

It's probably a better idea to hold congress responsible and stop tying the hands of the Dea and prosecutors.

Yes, I think his invention was a darn good idea.

I am clueless as far as the repercussions or negative effects it could have on prescription opiate users. You have enlightened me a bit though.

I think the point is obviously guys with bags of thousands of pills aren't getting them from grannie.

It's also a classic example of going after the effect and not the problem.

Arresting the users rather than the dealers.

Um that's how it is right now.

new, handwritten scripts for each prescription
no refills
no partial fills
no faxed in prescriptions

i dont know about thousands of pills but you would be surprised how many people get them from elderly family members.
happens more than you think

a lot of the time it is theft but a lot of the time those elders sell them too.
why do they sell them?
cause they are old and broke and have no money to #in eat so its food or pills.

trust me man. this happens

the 2 largest ways pills hit the street though is people selling their scripts and people bringing them in from other countries.
not even bringing them in personally. people have them mailed to them from people out of the country.

Alright sir drop the bottle, now move away from the bottle-put your hands behind your back- now the police can search your residence for tampered with bottles,or anything else now that they have your permission(must agree to search as condition for being prescribed said pills.)

According to a Dea agent and my father in law who is a pharmacist that isn't the way most pills end up on the streets.

In the 60 minutes from this week they said millions of bad orders hit the streets through pill, mills, dr's, and pharmacies (some having 10x more than people in the town).

If you haven't seen the 60 minutes watch it.

Plenty of addicts steal pulls and buy scripts but that isn't what created or fed the epidemic.

The government and pharmaceutical companies conspired to do it

TextJOE RANNAZZISI: This was all new to us. We weren't seeing just some security violations, and a few bad orders. We were seeing hundreds of bad orders that involved millions and millions of tablets. That's when we started going after the distributors.

They also do surprise pill counts and you have to go there when they call you. And if you don't have the right amount your out of the pain clinic.

Where I live your primary care physician can no longer prescribe opiates and you have to be referred to a pain clinic where they monitor you on a regular basis. And if they call you and tell you you have to come in for a pill count and you don't go your out. And on the forms you fill out initially that's one of the things you have to agree to.

correct.
get called in for a count and you have 24 hours to show up with the proper amount.
of course for a seller there are ways around that too.

not too hard

drug tests as well at random.
doc writes an order to check levels
