Narcotics Unit Calls For Drug Monitoring Program

The prescription drug abuse problem continues to grow in the local area. Just yesterday afternoon two individuals from Kentucky set off a red flag when they tried to pass a prescription for Oxycodone at Halls Pharmacy in Krakow. The two men had received the prescription from a pain clinic in Georgia and were told to fill it along the i-44 corridor due to the lack of a drug monitoring system. Due to relaxed Missouri Laws these people are not actually breaking any laws but are either contributing to their own drug addiction or hoarding drugs to sell in their state. Detective Scott Briggs with the Franklin County Narcotics Unit would like to thank Halls Pharmacy for contacting the Sheriff’s office and encourages other pharmacies to do the same.

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball. A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!
