MS Code § 41-29-129 (2013) What's This?

(a) A registration to manufacture, distribute, or dispense a controlled substance may be suspended or revoked by the State Board of Pharmacy upon a finding that the registrant:

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

(2) Has been convicted of a felony within the past five (5) years and has not been pardoned and his citizenship restored under any state or federal law relating to any controlled substance;

(3) Has had his federal registration suspended or revoked to manufacture, distribute, or dispense controlled substances;

(4) Has violated or failed to comply with any state law or any duly promulgated regulation of the State Board of Pharmacy which reflects adversely on the registrant's reliability and integrity with respect to controlled substances;

(5) Has violated the Uniform Controlled Substances Law of the State of Mississippi;

(6) Has violated any duly promulgated rule or regulation of the State Board of Pharmacy pertaining to the manufacture, distribution, storage, possession, control or dispensing of controlled substances;

(7) Has been convicted of a violation relating to any substance defined in this article as a controlled substance;

(8) Has dispensed any controlled substance if the registrant knew the prescription was not valid under the provisions of this article.

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

(c) If the board or the State Board of Pharmacy suspends or revokes a registration, all controlled substances owned or possessed by the registrant at the time of suspension or the effective date of the revocation order may be placed under seal. No disposition may be made of substances 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 substances and the deposit of the proceeds of the sale with the court. Upon a revocation order becoming final, all controlled substances may be forfeited to the state. All state professional or business licensing agencies shall promptly notify the bureau of all orders of suspensions or revocations which are the result of drug violations or drug-related matters.

(d) The bureau shall promptly notify the federal Drug Enforcement Administration of all orders suspending or revoking registration and all forfeitures of controlled substances.
