DEA Raids 2 CVS Pharmacies in Florida

Florida DEA raided four pharmacies in the state’s recent effort to curb prescription drug abuse.  According to Reuters , two of the pharmacies belonged to CVS.  

The large drug store chain hopes to fight this in court, and although they plan to cooperate with the DEA, they still remain committed to the customers of both stores and want to make sure they can get all the medication they need, no matter how controlled the substance is.  

The other two pharmacies gave up their registrations, rather than fight the matter in court.  Wouldn’t you think that a large national chain like CVS should have a strict corporate standard for their procedure with controlled substances that would prevent these accusations?

I have been writing as long as I can remember, even carrying tattered notebooks with me through the streets and strip clubs of New Orleans, in the midst of my heroin addiction. I lived a life saturated in heroin until Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, leaving me to fend for myself, eventually facing my demons and coming face to face with my addiction. I have been clean for five years, and since then I have become a mother, graduated college, and started a writing career. I have a B.A. in Mass Media Communication, with a minor in Journalism. I have also written one published book, Through Both Hell and High Water: A Memoir of Addiction and Hurricane Katrina, which tells the story of those dark days I spent in New Orleans after the storm, battling with addiction amidst a natural disaster. I am the blogger and news curator for RecoveryNowTV, and I love sharing the stories of the world, as well as my own personal journey, with my readers. I hope that my words can touch others out there, struggling with addiction.
