dsds? >> well, what the hopefully whaa you'll see is less supply in and around the house. less opportunity to for kids tot get into them which, you know, we hear oftentimes kids tryingig to self medicate.edice. they look for something in a pan's med zen cabinet.. you hear once kids are startingt to use drugs, that they aret tha going to friend's houses andses looking in their friend'srid' medicine cabinets. so we've started prescriptionsco drop box program in arundel county at all of our police polc stations you can drop off unusee medications so that they aret ey disposed of properly.pey but hopefully by limiting themin you'll do a couple of thing.hi one, patients will only get to t use what they really need. two, once they're done with de their course of treatment, theye won't have any extra lying around and, you know, three,ee hopefully the smaller quantitylt will keep them from ever gettint hooked although with some of these opioids they're hooking og their instantly addicting to certain people and we reallyeea need to keep that in mine ase a well. >> finally before i let you go,o mr. adam, and i u
