Expect more of this to come as the DEA and HHS push their way deeper and deeper into our lives and continue to create even more regulations for handling "controlled substances". As this affects people's ability to obtain their prescription medications on time or in the proper dosage more people will end up turning to dealers just to get what they're supposed to be taking. Several times now we've had to scramble to get our daughter's ADHD meds because Ritalin is a controlled substance that; you can't refill until you're almost completely out of and have to present a hand written script for every refill. If that's not a big enough hassle, pharmacies aren't allowed to maintain any kind of regular stock and are unable to pre-order them even in the case of a patient with a verified prescription. So, about a third of the time you're running to some pharmacy several miles away because your local store is out of the few pills the DEA allows them to have. We're law abiding citizens, but our daughter has to have these meds or she isn't able to focus on much of anything. Having an extra bottle on hand would be a real security blanket for us since at this point we're just waiting for the time her script is screwed up by someone and we're unable to get her pills for an extended period of time.

I don't believe this 20 year old in the story was turning a dealer to get his monthly meds. I think it is good that the Naperville police are checking up on leads of drug trafficking in our town. This behavior is what brings trouble into Naperville & also puts drugs in the wrong hands. How would you feel if your child bought some Xanax from this looser & OD'd? Maybe we need to slow down & think about how this dumba** can wreck many lives. Being inconvenienced because you need to get a new script every month for a medicine or having to wait a extra day is trivial compared to one less drug dealer on the street corner!!
