Ok,since I just woke up and read this story maybe I am not fully comprehending what I read or I am just confused (which with me isn't hard to do)but, the part about finding the Oxycontin in the backseat,yes I can see where that would result in a charge. Medication not in a proper container (in this case, not in a container at all!) But, the bottles in the console, as long as what was in them is what was written on the prescription label, how can they be charged with that. Even if it read 2011....I didn't know there was a law that you had to take them all before a certain date....my mom has a bottle of Lortab in her medicine cabinet that has sit there for 3 years that still has the original pills in it! Like I said, maybe its just me and my brain hasn't fully kicked into gear yet, so if anyone can clear this up for me, please do.....

It's says on most bottles to discard after a year I think it is so if they got them a year ago they can keep the bottle and buy more from someone and put them in the bottle and try not get a charge

just thinking is right. if you could keep the bottle forever you could keep filling it up with illegal drugs.

Well its says right in the artical the man told the police he was buying and dropping pills off. Not much work for the cops to do in that situation. He did it all for them.

It says to discard them because of the expiration date. It has nothing to do with the law.

I wouldn't be surprised that the people needed to do this to supplement their income to pay bills. Elderly people don't make enough social security to live.

One would be very surprised at how many decent, church going, work hard all their life, elderly folks that sell their prescription meds. Very common

When is there going to be a backlash against being called elderly.? That is uncalled for. Their age is unimportant. 201
