Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Wholesale Drug Distribution Licensing Act. Provides that any person who practices, offers to practice, attempts to practice, or holds oneself out to practice as a wholesale drug distributor or pharmacy distributor without being licensed under the Act shall pay a civil penalty to the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation in an amount not to exceed $10,000 (instead of $5,000) per violation for each offense. Provides that any pharmacy investigator authorized by the Department has the right of entry that includes the business premises of a person licensed pursuant to the Act. Permits the authorized pharmacy investigator unfettered access to the entire business premises. Provides that the most recent 12 months of record must be kept on the premises where the drugs are stored. Allows the Department to take action, including imposing fines not to exceed $10,000 per violation, if the individual meets the requirements for grounds for disciplinary action. Provides that if any person violates the provisions of the Act, the Secretary may petition for an order enjoining the violation or for an order enforcing compliance with the Act. Provides that the Department may issue a rule to show cause why an order to cease and desist shall not be entered against that person. Makes other changes.
