A question has come up & I thought I'd see if there was any consensus on the list:

For new supplies of syringe needles (& syringes), how do you keep the stock secure to prevent theft or illegal use? Have you had any problems with "diversion" of laboratory needles (&/or syringes)?

I've found a couple of state statutes (NY & CT) that discuss how stock should be stored, but nothing federal.
