Phoenix Pharmacy's Plan to Prevent Pharming

NCC Reporter Kate Sheehy

Parents who suspect their kids might be popping pills can pick up free drug test kits at a Phoenix Pharmacy.

Phoenix, N.Y. -- The Medicine Place pharmacy started out with 40 drug test kits but they have had to order 35 more.

Phoenix parents who suspect their kids might be abusing prescription drugs can get one of these kits anonymously and free of charge.

Only a few weeks old, the program was created in reaction to a national increase in prescription drug abuse, a trend also known as pharming.

So, as the supply of free kits dwindles, Phoenix residents react. NCC reporter Kate Sheehy is in Phoenix and will have more on this story later today.
