UPS And CVS Deliver Prescription Medication Via Drone

Prescription medication is something that you normally have to go to a pharmacy to collect, and if you’re seriously ill or incapacitated — it can be quite a nuisance. The days of standing in line and waiting for a prescription may be nearing an end — as CVS and UPS has delivered prescription medications by drone. UPS announced the FCC’s approval of the drone program in October.

It’s not just about convenience, though (or one’s ability to get to a pharmacy).
