A Review of Federal Pharmacy Law


THIS HOME STUDY ACTIVITY HAS BEEN ASSIGNED AN ACPE UNIVERSAL ACTIVITY NUMBER DESIGNATOR OF 03 (PHARMACY LAW) AND MEETS THE
CONTIUNING EDUCATION REQUIREMENT IN THE SUBJECT AREA OF PHARMACY LAW, ESTABLISHED BY SEVERAL STATE BOARDS OF PHARMACY
 
The information provided is based on the Federal Law and the Federal Controlled Substance Act.  Some of the information may be different in different states.  States can make their own laws more restrictive than federal law, but not less restrictive.  For example: Currently under federal law, gabapentin is not a controlled substance.  However, some states may decide to make it a schedule IV drug.  Therefore, always be sure to check with your own state’s individual laws and rules regarding controlled substances when issues or questions arise regarding the practice of pharmacy.  This program is for educational purposes.  All questions regarding the practice of pharmacy should be directed to the Board of the Pharmacy in the state where the pharmacist practices.  
     One of the primary areas of confusion for pharmacists is the legal requirements regarding the dispensing of schedule II controlled substances.  Most of the time, it is not that pharmacists do not know the law, but rather that these situations occur so infrequently that their knowledge of proper legal procedures may be somewhat lacking.
