ScriptCenter: ATM for Drugs

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

New ATM-like prescription machines are being rolled out in California and Virginia, where new changes in states' laws allow medicines to be dispensed without a pharmacist. This new machine, called the 'ScriptCenter,' has been installed at a Longs Drug in Del Mar, California, and coughs up as much Furosemide and Metformin as your pharmacist has loaded into it. That's the thing—it's not like there's a robot in there with a mortar and pestle. Instead, you call your orders in like normal, and the techs load the machine up with your drugs, which you unlock with a secret code and pay for with a credit card. That means you can pick up your prescriptions any time you want, not just when the pharmacy is open.
