New Law Requires Pharmacies in Massachusetts to Carry Rx Lock Boxes
Date:8/18/2010

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- On August 9, 2010 Massachusetts passed Chapter 283 of the Acts of 2010, adding Safeguards to the Prescription Monitoring Program and furthering Substance Abuse Education and Prevention. Section 11 of the act requires all pharmacies in Massachusetts that dispense schedule II, III, IV, or V prescription drugs to make available lock boxes for sale at each location. More info at http://www.mass.gov/legis/laws/seslaw10/sl100283.htm. To help pharmacies comply with the new law, Rx Locker, a lock box designed by renowned addiction expert Dr. Drew Pinsky to secure prescription medications within the home, is offering all pharmacies a special compliance package.

"We commend Senator Tolman, Governor Deval Patrick, Massachusetts Pharmacists Association and the entire the state of Massachusetts for supporting this law, the first of it's kind in the nation, and taking the lead to address the very pressing problem of prescription drug abuse," said Dr. Drew.

The Rx Locker is a patented locking storage device designed to hold up to 4 prescription pill bottles and still fit inside a standard medicine cabinet. The RX Lock Box features a chromed metal combination lock that provides convenient access for the user while ensuring secure storage and privacy.

About 70% of teens that abused say they got the prescription drugs from family and friends.  (National Survey on Drug Use and Health.)
