StreetRx in the News

Some notable excerpts:

The website is one of several tools used by the Researched Abuse, Diversion and Addiction-Related Services system to track prescription drug usage for pharmaceutical companies and others who subscribe.

Prescription drugs prices are different from street drugs, such as heroin and cocaine,ecause sellers can control the purity. That means Percocet pills in Los Angeles don’t cost much more than Percocet pills in Chillicothe.

Because prices are relatively constant, any shift might indicate a change in supply or demand, which is important information for law enforcement.
