LINCOLN, Calif. — A drug-security product has won a drug-abuse prevention award.
The Locking Cap was named as one of the "Top 5 Technologies to Reduce Prescription Drug Abuse" by the Center for Lawful Access and Abuse Deterrence.
The cap is a four-digit combination-locking lid for prescription medication bottles. The maker of the cap, Cap-n-Lock, launched an updated version of the cap at the beginning of the year to attract the attention of shoppers.
"We are certain that our new look will have a greater impact on the customer, thus promoting our cause to secure medications and protect adolescents from accessing them," Locking Cap creator Joseph Simpson said.
