UPS and CVS will use drones to deliver prescriptions in Florida

Starting May, UPS and CVS plan to use drones to shuttle medicine to people in The Villages, Florida. UPS will use Matternet M2 quadcopters to deliver the prescriptions. Initially the drone will drop off the orders at a pickup location, with a human driver on the ground moving them the rest of the way. One CVS pharmacy will take part in the program initially. The program is sanctioned by the FAA.

Lovely. Back to the good old days when you had to hunt your prescription drugs. May not always be what you need, but you can trade those for other goods at the general store.

Dropping stuff from sky, and expecting old people to find it or understand is expecting too much. I think this is just a test, if even real.

Noise permit? Radio bandwidth reserved? Insurance, should one go down and bring harm to a person, pet, or piece of property? I hope all of the above are true first.

Something to breathe about out of our gloom n doom global lockdowns. So why are there not more initiatives of this sort happening. Still living in fear ? How long will a highly advanced civilization live in such a state.

Good. CVS is a 10 minute walk from my house. I got meds shipped to adhere social distancing. It to 52 hours for USPS (10 minute walk away in another direction) to get my damn meds.
