Dispensing of certain controlled substances and devices; limited license. Authorizes the Board of Pharmacy to issue a limited license at a reduced fee to a prescriber in a nonprofit facility to dispense controlled substances and devices for contraception or treatment of sexually transmitted disease. The bill provides that the nonprofit facility from which a prescriber with such limited license dispenses such controlled substances and devices is required to obtain a limited-use permit from the Board and comply with relevant Board regulations and is exempt from associated fees. The bill requires the Board of Pharmacy to promulgate regulations to implement its provisions to be effective within 280 days of its enactment. Read the Bill »
