How would you obtain such evidence, given that you have to take people at their word?

Well depending on where you live and what medications you carry, you are required to carry the prescription label at all times already.

In any case, animals are not drugs and the reason one may have to have a legitimate prescription for some medicines has nothing to do with the issues of service animals.

I still don't see what that has to do with service animals. They aren't in any way related to narcotics - or drugs of any kind.

And what's more it doesn't say you have to carry the container at all times, as stated. It says you can't carry the medication outside the container, except for immediate consumption.

True. The first words of the first quote is "except for the purpose of current use" and all three apply only to narcotics, controlled substances, or dangerous drugs.

Even the most unimaginative researcher should be able to think of a dozen legal ways to find out whether there's even any problem that needs researching. Such excuses for a lack of real data aren't going to cut it.

Uh, no, the burden of proof is on those who claim there's a problem. I'm not going to waste my time with other people's unsupported accusations.

The law bars the owners or operators of an establishment from asking anything more than the questions I linked to earlier. It doesn't prevent a researcher (or even a private citizen) from asking all sorts of questions, from the benign to the incredibly nosy.
