Amazon Will Start Testing Drones That Will Drop Prescriptions on Your Doorstep

From an AP story by Tom Murphy and Haleluya Hadero headlined “Amazon will start testing drones that will drop prescriptions on your doorstep”:

Amazon will soon make prescription drugs fall from the sky when the e-commerce giant becomes the latest company to test drone deliveries for medications.

The company said Wednesday that customers in College Station, Texas, can now get prescriptions delivered by a drone within an hour of placing their order.

The drone, programed to fly from a delivery center with a secure pharmacy, will travel to the customer’s address, descend to a height of about four meters — or 13 feet — and drop a padded package.
