Minnesota Pharmacies Could Take Back Prescription Medicines Under Proposed Legislation.
Pharmacies in Minnesota would be able to collect and dispose of controlled substances (CS) and non-CS under a proposed bill (Senate File (SF) 1425). Currently, it is unlawful for Minnesota pharmacies to take back prescription drugs, reports American Pharmacists Association. The companion bill to SF 1425 is House File 1503. To date, the proposed bill was referred to the Committee on Health, Human Services and Housing for a second reading.
