This has been going on for a very long time. I'm glad there is some move in a direction to curtail it at least somewhere in the country. My son was addicted to oxycontin but has been clean and sober for 5 years. So, this was happening over 5 years ago in our high schools and colleges here in Florida. The county where we live is at/near the top of the list of counties with 12-17 year olds participating in these pharm partieis on a regular basis. Death is not an uncommon occurrence here either.
This collection idea is a good one. I hope it catches on everywhere.
