O.C.G.A. 16-13-72.1 (2010)
16-13-72.1. Revocation of dangerous drug permit; forfeiture


(a) A permit issued by the State Board of Pharmacy under paragraph (1) of Code Section 16-13-72 may be suspended or revoked by the State Board of Pharmacy upon a finding that the drug manufacturer, wholesaler, distributor, or supplier:

(1) Has furnished false or fraudulent material information in any application filed under this article;

(2) Has been convicted of a felony under any state or federal law relating to any controlled substance or has been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor under any state or federal law relating to any dangerous drug;

(3) Has violated any provision of this article or the rules and regulations promulgated under this article; or

(4) Has failed to maintain sufficient controls against diversion of dangerous drugs into other than legitimate medical, scientific, or industrial channels.

(b) The State Board of Pharmacy may limit revocation or suspension of a permit to the particular dangerous drug with respect to which grounds for revocation or suspension exist.

(c) Instead of suspending or revoking a permit as authorized by subsection (a) or (b) of this Code section, the State Board of Pharmacy may impose a fine in an amount not to exceed $1,500.00.

(d) If the State Board of Pharmacy suspends or revokes a permit, all dangerous drugs owned or possessed by the permittee at the time of suspension or the effective date of the revocation order shall be placed under seal. No disposition may be made of drugs under seal until the time for taking an appeal has elapsed or until all appeals have been concluded unless a court, upon application therefor, orders the sale of perishable drugs and the deposit of the proceeds of the sale with the court. Upon a revocation order becoming final, all dangerous drugs shall be forfeited to the state.
