I live in Florida, one of the strictest states when it comes to controlled substance laws. I went to get my scripts filled (Percocet and Morphine) and was turned away because the pharmacist was "at her limit" and all her medication was being saved for her regular patients. I thought it was illegal for a pharmacist to save medication like that and controlled substances were more or less first come, first served (I've tried to get a pharmacy to order me meds ahead of time and hold them-they said they couldn't). Does anybody know the laws (other than it was just simply bad business practice)? It's hard enough getting my meds as it is and having this happen just made it ten times worse.View Thread
