Senator
Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y) has introduced a three pronged plan to combat
prescription drug abuse.  The Senator introduced his plan at a New York
pharmacy.

Schumer’s plan calls for:

  1. Added medical training for painkiller prescription and addiction training related to those medications.
  2. Stiffer penalties for thieves convicted of stealing painkillers.
  3. A new federal prescription tracking system that would cross state lines.

Schumer
also believes that disallowing banks from accepting credit card
transactions from online pharmacies would have a similar effect as the
online gambling ban.

The
truth is that many of these pills lead to a severe opiate addiction.   A
lot of these kids trying these pills turn to heroin, because it is a
better high at a cheaper cost to them.

Understanding prescription drug abuse is something many parents need to do.
