Illinois will test security for meds

Posted by wlpo on August 30, 2015

Illinois will be the first state in the country to test out a pilot program that will put locking devices on some prescription painkillers to make it harder for people to abuse the drugs. The numerical locking devices will be similar to those used on gym lockers and will be placed on pill bottles. Governor Bruce Rauner signed the measure into law last week. It takes effect in 2016.
