States 'recycle' meds to battle costs

AP/Yahoo News, April 7, 2008

Some states allow donations of sealed drugs from individuals, while others only accept pharmaceuticals from institutions. Drugs are typically vetted by pharmacists to cross-check safety, then distributed by hospitals, pharmacies or charitable clinics.
