Prescription drug databases are available to police without warrants
I don't think anyone would be surprised that such records would be available with a warrant, but without a warrant surprised me. I suppose it shouldn't have, since we've had the War On Drugs shaping public policy ever since the puritans gave up on Prohibition, but it did. After all, something as innocuous as your video rental history is specifically protected under federal law and requires a warrant to access. Your prescription drug history is far more personal and revealing, yet it's available to police just for the asking?
