Governor wants to kill pill mill database
Gov. Rick Scott has proposed abolishing a long-awaited computer database that would track every Florida prescription for narcotic drugs, the state's main weapon against pill mills.
Documents accompanying Scott's budget proposal Monday ask the Legislature to repeal a 2009 law that approved the database. The database was set to start Dec. 1 but is stalled by a protest from an unsuccessful bidder.

From what reports I've heard on this, this system is funded privately, not using any taxpayers' money.
We have a similar database in Ohio and its a great tool. I don't see how he can claim this isn't working, especially when according to this article it hasn't even been started yet."Like" us on facebook! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Offic...93147194083228

We have something similar in Alabama and it is a GREAT tool! We have made a lot of cases on doctor shoppers with it.
