Lewis v. Superior Court (Cal. Ct. App. - May 29, 2014)

Reasonable people should know that whenever you get a prescription filled, any law enforcement officer -- or any administrative officer with the state -- is entitled to know upon request what drugs you take.  Without a warrant.  Without reasonable suspicion.  Without anything.  Whether it's codeine or Viagra or whatever, the state's entitled to find out what drugs you take at its leisure.  Unlike actual medical records, which are legitimately private.

So holds the California Court of Appeal.
