The bill provides that a patient's registered agent is not required to register with the Board of Pharmacy when such registered agent is listed on the patient's written certification pursuant to the patient's request and in the discretion of the practitioner based on medical need. The bill also requires that, in the case of cannabis products, the Prescription Monitoring Program shall include only the information specified in law, which is amended by the bill. Read the Bill »
