Lawmakers describe John “Nugget” Bland as the kind of criminal who won’t stand a chance once the state gets its new prescription database running.
Bland, who was arrested in Orange County last month, allegedly forged prescriptions and employed a stable of accomplices, driving them to pharmacies in Hudson County and New York City. He gave the accomplices cash to pay for the drugs and a small fee, prosecutors said, then sold the painkillers to street addicts.
