Schedule II drugs; identification required in filling prescriptions. Specifies that certain duties imposed upon a pharmacist in the delivery of Schedule II drugs may be undertaken by the agent of the pharmacist. The bill also makes discretionary provisions enacted in 2010 requiring that a pharmacist record the name and address of any person who seeks to fill a prescription for a Schedule II drug if the person is not the patient for whom the drug is prescribed, make photocopies of proof of identity and maintain records of names and addresses. The bill eliminates the requirement that copies of identification documents be kept for at least one year. Read the Bill »
