Rx Safes CEO, Lorraine Yarde, Interviewed on Nationally Syndicated Radio Show, Highlighting the Nation's Prescription Drug Abuse Epidemic

HENDERSON, NV--(Marketwired - Mar 19, 2015) - Rx Safes, Inc. (OTC: RXSF), the developer of fingerprint enabled healthcare security products and secure prescription medicine lock-boxes, announced today that its CEO, Lorraine Yarde, was invited to appear on the show to discuss the importance of locking up all medications in the home. Also interviewed on the show was the Director of the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, Darrell Weaver, who is a 25+ year law enforcement veteran, his experience dealing primarily with Narcotics based crimes and issues.

1 in 5 teenagers in the US has admitted to abusing prescription drugs and 70% of these drugs are stolen from the medicine cabinets of unsuspecting family members and friends. Show host, Josh Tolley, implored his listeners to purchase the company's product, the Rx DrugSAFE, stating, "This issue is a matter of life and death...and it's preventable with a product like the Rx DrugSAFE." Josh added, "Why would you take the risk when we have over 100,000 deaths every year as a result of prescription drugs."

Director Weaver emphasized the importance of personal responsibility, saying that we have to deal with this issue one home at a time. "I would like to get multiple lockboxes…I would like one in every home of our elderly in Oklahoma," Director Weaver added. The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics has led the way in spearheading initiatives to address the prescription drug abuse epidemic within their state. They recently validated the importance of our product by purchasing 500 Rx DrugSAFE units, which they will install in the homes of elderly Oklahomans.

"Following the successful installation of these initial 500 lockboxes in Oklahoma, we expect to work on a more comprehensive program to fulfill Director Weaver's wishes of a lockbox in the home of very elderly person in Oklahoma. We are now seeing interest from other states, including Florida and Massachusetts and are working on programs with officials from various departments, to make the Rx DrugSAFE available in their respective states," commented Rx Safes' CEO, Lorraine Yarde.

Also on the call was a brave recovering addict, Kris Kesterson, who became addicted to prescription drugs at the age of 13 when he began stealing them from the medicine cabinet at home. 17 years on, Kris is still battling addiction and stated, "If they had been locked up I wouldn't have had access to them and it definitely would have deterred me."

Rx Safes' patented fingerprint technology makes it simple for families to provide a safe environment for their children at home. Without needing to remember a pin code or find a key, the Rx DrugSAFE provides true peace of mind to responsible parents without negatively impacting their daily routine.
