Why is it a good idea to have a locking medication cabinet to store your medications? To reduce access and avoid accidental poisonings. A majority of kids get access to prescription drugs for misuse or abuse from their own home, a relative’s home or a friend’s home. Install the locking cabinet on a closet or wall out of high traffic areas in the home. All medications should be stored in a cool, dry place. Don’t install the cabinet in a bathroom. Make sure the cabinet is not easily removable.
