Do not give me child-proof medicine bottles! I am five years old!

I almost had to bash the thing open.

I'm a genie in a bottle, baby

1) requires remembering to ask. They usually do the right thing anyway, and if I've run out of Adderall, I'm not likely to think of... details, however important they may be.

2) I do this, but it's technically illegal.

As it happens, I still had the previous, empty bottle, so I transferred them to it1. Victory!


1. Although still technically illegal, no one would ever notice. :)

You do indeed buy the actual drugs, but I suppose a prescription is almost exactly a license to do so, and to continue to possess them afterward. The laws that require the drugs to stay in the original container, which has the information about that license printed on it, are similar to laws requiring a license for driving a motor vehicle.

[Interesting side note: the pharmacist will divide a single prescription among multiple properly labeled bottles if you request it.]

In both cases, you don't absolutely have to carry that license, but certain circumstances may oblige you to report to a judge to display that license if you could not show it to the nice officer.

We know all this, I'm just thinking out loud. You know--for kids.
