Implanted AI Health/Drug monitoring

Given the widespread misuse of narcotics and expensive healthcare, implantable intelligent sensors should be used for anyone with reoccurring drug and/or chronic health issues to monitor their status. Encrypted prescription information can be uploaded by physicians so patients can't "doctor shop" or double-dip.
