I haven't heard of any change in Rx laws and I recently checked out the news release on both the FDA and DEA websites. It very well might be a local law change. Federal laws concerning precriptions really haven't changed much, but I think thats partly because its local law enforcement that is responsible for smaller cases. Most federal level laws provide protection from large scale operations but not much protection for smaller "under the radar ones". Therefore, state governments are taking a stronger stand against Rx crimes. In addition to this, if cases becomes larger, the DEA could get involved, and the states want to handle their own business with as little federal support as possible. On the positive, some measures prevent diversion. On the negative, some state laws make the prescription process for CP patients more difficult. Most of the laws are aimed at teenagers and "fly by night" practices and shipping companies. Unfortunately, making harsher laws isn't going to stop teens. Better educational means has been known to make the biggest impact. Tougher laws only make teens want to "rebel" more so to speak.
