Tiie commission also hits "loose" prescription writing habiis by doctors, patient abuse of prescribed drugs and the cur- rent prescription recording sys- tem. "If someone wants to take a certain drug for non-medical reasons, he may build up a sup- ply by obtaining prescriptions from several different physi- the report says.

Currently, all prescriptions for controlled drugs are rec- orded by a branch of the federal food and drug directorate in Ot- tawa "but there is no effective system of record analysis." the directorate only receives reports on pre- scriptions for certain opiate nar- cotics and controlled drugs. "The present system does not include reports of tranquillizer prescriptions, although these psychotropre drugs are among the most widely used of all drugs, both medically and non- mech'cally." The report says that it is in- advisable to prescribe stimu- lants or sedatives for periods of more than two or three weeks, since any accumulation of such drugs by the patient is consi- dered potentially dangerous." There is the risk of overdose, accidental or deliberate, and that of inducing psychological or physical dependency.
