Michigan Pharmaceutical Supplier’s DEA License Suspended - Harvard Drug Group, LLC distributed 13 million doses of Oxy from 2008-2010 is yet another warning shot to pharmaceutical distributors.

Adam Fein says "the DEA seems intent on holding drug wholesalers accountable for diversion of controlled substances by the wholesaler’s pharmacy customers." (The DEA Nabs Another Wholesaler)

Robert L. Corso, Special Agent in Charge of the Detroit Field Division, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), states in the DEA news release:
"Pharmaceutical companies have a responsibility to ensure that the drugs they sell don’t end up in the hands of drug traffickers or businesses that are conducting their business illegally. Harvard Drug Group, LLC, should have known, based on the large, frequent quantities, that their customers were diverting oxycodone into arenas that were not legitimate. Today’s action sends the message that the DEA is working hard to hold accountable those companies that are operating in a manner outside of federal law."
Be forewarned.

Designated Representative Violations

The alcohol can fall down to anyoneImage via Wikipedia
The California Board of Pharmacy files cases against designated representatives where the violation(s) involve significant misconduct on the part of the licensee. The board believes that revocation is typically the appropriate penalty when grounds for discipline are found to exist. Grounds for discipline include, but are not limited to, the following violation(s) of law(s) involving:
  • Possession of dangerous drugs and/or controlled substances
  • Use of dangerous drugs and/or controlled substances
  • Possession for sale of dangerous drugs and/or controlled substances
  • Personal misuse of drugs or alcohol
If revocation is not imposed, the board recommends a minimum Category III level of discipline be imposed on the designated representative. This would include suspension and probation.
