Diversion problems: Acknowledging the issue
from By Jason Poquette
Virtually every pharmacist understands the magnitude of the drug diversion problem in the U.S. We see glimpses of it almost every day on a small scale, but these sorts of events are rather bland and commonplace. What's truly troubling is that we see nearly daily news events about the discoveries of drug diversion going inside the pharmacy on the one hand, and the equally disturbing number of burglaries and robberies by addicts and dealers on the other.
