§ 41-29-311. Suspension or revocation of license or registration
On the conviction of any physician, dentist, veterinarian, manufacturer, wholesaler, or apothecary of a violation of any of the provisions of Sections 41-29-301 through 41-29-309, in any court of competent jurisdiction, the clerk of said court shall send a certified copy of the indictment, affidavit, information, and of the rules, verdict and sentence to the board or officer, by whom the convicted defendant has been licensed to practice his or her profession or to carry on his or her business. Such board or officer may in its or his discretion suspend or revoke the license or registration of the convicted defendant to practice his or her profession or to carry on his or her business. On the application of any such convicted defendant whose license or registration has been suspended or revoked, upon proper showing and for good cause, said board or officer may reinstate such license or registration.
Any court of competent jurisdiction in which such a defendant is convicted of a violation of any of the provisions of Sections 41-29-301 through 41-29-309 shall have the power in its discretion to suspend or revoke the license or registration of the convicted defendant and may thereafter, upon proper showing and for good cause reinstate such license or registration.
No board or officer shall reinstate any such license or registration where the same shall have been suspended or revoked by a court of competent jurisdiction; no court shall reinstate any license of such a convicted defendant which has been revoked by the board or officer by whom the convicted defendant was licensed to practice his or her profession or to carry on his or her business except upon a proceeding brought in a court of competent jurisdiction for the purpose of setting aside or restraining such suspension or revocation of license.
This section shall not apply wherever any board is already, under existing statutes, vested with authority to suspend or revoke license because of violation of any federal law regulating the use or disposition of narcotics.
