(Associated Press) – Amazon will soon make prescription drugs fall from the sky when the e-commerce giant becomes the latest company to test drone deliveries.
The company said Wednesday that customers in College Station, Texas can now get prescriptions delivered by a drone within an hour of placing their order.
The drone is programed to fly from a delivery center with a secure pharmacy.
It will travel to the customer’s address, descend to a height of about four meters _ or 13 feet _ and drop a padded package.
Other companies that have tested prescription drone deliveries include CVS Health.
