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 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.
