Internet Pharmacy Bill Clears Committee

A Senate-passed bill meant to tighten restrictions on Internet pharmacies cleared the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.
The bill would require proof from Internet pharmacies that a patient had seen a doctor before dispensing any medication.
Deputy Attorney General Pierce Whites said that would help crack down on a "phantom process" in which medications are obtained without a doctor's prescription.
Internet pharmacies would be required to have national certification as a "verified Internet pharmacy practice site." Also under the bill, Kentucky pharmacies would be allowed to track ephedrine and psuedoephedrine purchases as they happen. The measure heads to the full House for consideration.
