Realtors® and Prescription Drug Safety

it's easy to not recognize a relationship between real estate and prescription drug theft and abuse. But the truth is that beyond the enormous preparation Realtors® go through to ensure a house is ready for sale, there could be a danger lurking in the bathroom cabinet.
