NYPD Will Implant GPS Chips Into Pill Bottles To Combat Prescription Drug Abuse

“In an effort to curb the growing epidemic of Americans abusing prescription drugs, the New York Police Department will begin asking pharmacies in the city to mix in so-called “bait bottles” containing GPS locator chips into their stocks of prescription drug medications, CBS News reports. Police hope that putting locator chips in some medication bottles will allow them to effectively track stolen bottles and uncover large-scale prescription drug stash houses.”
