People who abuse prescription drugs can't get them filled at CVS or Walgreens because these large chains belong to a network that tracks drug purchases. These chain stores won't sell prescription drugs to individuals who fit a pattern demonstrating abuse. Individuals who abuse prescription drugs have to keep finding doctors who will write the prescription (doesn't matter if it's an emergency room or a 24/7 health center), and they have to find a drug store that will fill the prescription. That's where the mom-and-pop drugstores fill the need; they are not on a network like the large chains, and end up filling prescriptions that are abused. Was Island Drug victimized by these individuals who go to great lengths to get drugs? I don't know. But when individuals come from off-island to pick up prescription drugs, one has to wonder. I suspect someone dropped-a-dime and Chief Carr caught on.
