LL, I'm glad your husband is going to take care of this, but please do not let him around you and your family. Not only is he a problem, but he could let others know about your meds and you definately don't want that. I'm sorry that you are dealing with this on top of everything else and I hope your husband can deal with your father and you can focus on taking care of you!
I think you already know the answers to what you have to do as you so stated in your post,have him commited!
Those drugs he is diverting to the street can end up in the hands of children, who do you think is going to jail when his 29 year old GF ods on his meds?
There is a hotline to report Docs that might be shady and they will get investigated and you DONT have to give them your name.
He sounds a little more then manipultive here and using you or your sister is a lifelong trip it appears just like it looks he did your Mom.
As an adult child of a parent who is NOT all there anylonger you and your sister can be held accountable in the terms of neglect for aging and demented parents and it sounds like he is on the fast track to being just that. If you know he is endangering himself and others and you dont do something or report it to someone how liable can you be? It would be up to a judge and jury but I dont think you want to take those kinds of chances with your kids lives do you.
Do what you already know you should and start calling someone come Monday morning and at least it will be on record that you were concerned he was going to harm himself or others and clears you in this mess.
Sorry if this is blunt but it looks as if you and your entire family has more on their plate then they need and this is one you can certainly shove off fast. You need to be worrying about you and dealing with your illness and spending quality time with your family not dealing with a aging parent who doesnt appear to have given you much more then a headache his entire life!
