Study Finds Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs Ineffective at Curbing Overdoses – by Allison Inserro – May 2019

Prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) are now in place in all 50 states and the District of Columbia in response to rising levels of overdoses involving opioids and synthetic opioids.

It couldn’t be any clearer. They keep applying solutions for prescribing problems, wasting time while more and more people die of overdoses.
