Oregon pharmacy loses license over marijuana prescriptions – Statesman Journal
TUMALO, Ore. (AP) — A Tumalo pharmacy is closing after a state licensing board says it manufactured marijuana products, dispensed controlled substances without prescriptions and filled clients’ prescriptions at other pharmacies without their knowledge, among other things.
The Bend Bulletin reports that the Oregon Board of Pharmacy placed the Tumalo Pharmacy and its pharmacist under emergency suspension Tuesday while it completes an investigation.
The board says the pharmacy manufactured marijuana products and relabeled a marijuana product as a prescription and took it to a client’s care facility, among other findings.
The pharmacy’s owners, Doug Forbes and pharmacist Kerri Rosenblatt, have 90 days to formally dispute the findings. Forbes said Friday he plans to dispute the findings and is confident the pharmacy will reopen by the end of the month.
