Locking My Meds

As the aunt to a young “all-American” heroin addict, I am well aware of the epidemic of heroin in our country.  As the parent to teenagers who have been prescribed strong pain medications, I am well aware of the connection between prescription medicine and heroin addiction.  Thus, the last time I walked into CVS, I asked to buy a small safe or lock box so that I could lock up the opioids that my son had been prescribed by his doctor.  Now CVS sells nearly everything you could want related to treating illness or maintaining health…with the exception of a place to safely store your medication!  For that, I had to go to an office supply store.
