Incorrect. This changed at the end of 2015, though many doctors do not utilize it, for obvious reasons.
No it didn't change. Read what you linked to again:
"Now, thanks to health information technology tools, patients in nearly all 50 states can have their medications prescribed electronically."
Not to mention you weren't even smart enough to see that I posted that statement in 2013 TWO years prior to that law changing in some states. If you are going to quote me at least do so correctly.
There are still states where controlled substances cannot be prescribed without a written script. Even if it CAN be many providers still are not using electronic prescriptions yet. The controls that have to be in place are cumbersome and many practices especially smaller ones are not able to undertake that expense.
My physician does not use electronic prescriptions yet either for any drug let alone narcotics.
