How is the goverment gna help with that? Why was she taken someone else"s meds? Not being cold but, who are you gna blame the family memb who should have to worry about his or her"s meds being stolen frm the cabnet or the girls parents for not being a good parent & having a child that would take something that don't belong to her.. or the doctor for writting the script? People love to blame other people .
