Lawmakers Look for Pill Mill Bill Veto

May 8th, 2009 by flanews

State lawmakers that helped pass a prescription drug monitoring bill are now asking the governor to veto the legislation.

The reason, a prescription drug monitoring database in Virginia was hacked. The hacker claims to have 35 million prescription records and is asking for a 10 million dollar ransom. Representative Carl Domino said if Florida creates a drug monitoring database what happened in Virginia could happen here.

Many people who voted for the bill now want it vetoed. I assume the governor will do the responsible thing and veto the bill because theres not a single protection in that bill that will protect against whats happening in Virginia, said Domino.

Florida is one of only 12 states that doesnt have prescription drug monitoring database. Drug dealers from as far away as Tennessee travel to Florida to stock up on painkillers.
